Some 2010 Business
Our wonderful friend, Paul, at Mindparts is coming through for us to host the January edition of The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. Hooray! The edition will be posted on Friday, 1/29 and submissions must be turned in by the deadline of Wednesday, 1/27. Click on that BC widget to the left there on my sidebar to go straight to the submission form.
It looks like I also have enough interest with hosts to cover monthly editions for about six or seven other months for 2010. I could still use some hosts for most of the summer and fall months, so be thinking about it won't you? Thanks!
Still sick here, but not nearly as bad. Thanks for the well wishes, all.
Before I forget, I want to conduct some business. We have GOT to get some hosts lined up for 2010 monthly editions of our Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. At the present moment, I don't have anybody. Any interest out there? If you've participated by submitting blog posts to our carnival in the past, I'd really like to encourage you to host. It's really quite simple and I help you through it every step of the way.
If you think you could help us out with hosting, please leave a comment and let me know what month preference, if any, that you have. Thanks for considering, everyone. I know our blog carnival has become a very important mode of sharing, survivor solidarity, advocacy and awareness- raising. Let's keep it going strong for another year!
Hope you shake your symptoms soon!
I have only submitted to the carnival once, but I would be willing to try hosting a blog carnival. I guess I'd be good with February, but don't really have a preference. (That's my birthday month) How are topics chosen?
IK: Oh, yay! Thank you so much for your willingness. February would be great. Topics or themes for each carnival are not required, but many hosts have wanted them. Since it's your birthday month, you could talk about birthday triggers, how you celebrate them now vs. in the past, etc. Or, many hosts choose a seasonal theme. Since Feb is Valentine's Day month, you could do a love theme. The final choice is up to you!
Hi friend. I have missed communication with you. I hope that while you are struggling to get well that you are gentle with yourself and take special care. We all care about you very much.
I would like to host very much let me get back to you on a month. I always do better with committing to something if I think about it for awhile. ;)
On another note..." She's had to make her blog private and open to invited readers only. "...I'll still be reading blogs and commenting, but my blog will no longer be "open". If you would like to read Lisa Marie's blog, you can e-mail her with a request.
I don't feel comfortable repeating Lisa Marie's e-mail address here, so that is why I have copied and pasted some of her comment.
Paul: Oh, thank you! I got your e-mail and just sent you a reply.
Ivory: I'll put you down for August and I'll give you LOTS of tips way before then. I'll guide you through it step-by-step. Don't worry. Thanks so much for your willingness!
Kate: Try to submit at least once or twice between now and May, and I'll slot you in for May. Thanks!
Lisa Marie: I've got a request in to you for an invite to your new blog (sorry about the safety issue--but I'm glad you're keeping yourself safe). And let me know about your ability to host. I guess we'd have to make sure that the participants can read your blog. Thanks for your interest!
Colleen: Thank you for the well wishes. I hope you are staying healthy so far in 2010.
Enola: Oh, thank you. You are also another person I can always count on to support the carnival. I appreciate you, too! Could I slot you in for April?
Hope you are well.
Sorry to leave this message here, but I couldn't find your email address here. I am moving at the beginning of May and am not sure if I will definitely be online and how long it will take me to have my computer up and running again, so I don't think it will be possible for me to host the Carnival in May. Would it be possible to take a later month in the year instead of May? Will you be able to find a replacement? I thought that letting you know as soon as possible would be the best.
