Please check back on July 24th when the September Carnival Topic is announced!

What is a blog carnival?
The way a blog carnival is formatted is that each blogger posts their individual posts based on the theme of the carnival.  At the bottom of everyone’s post will be a brief synopsis and link to the other blogger’s posts that are participating.  All posts will go live on the same day. 


What should I write about?
How the carnival topic affects your family
What you’d like other parents to know about the topic
Activities that can be done based on the topic


How should I format my post?
-Posts should be 300-700.  For page-loading purposes, try use 3-5 pictures.  If you want to include more, consider doing some collages {they load as 1 image}

-All posts will be published on the same day.  Please schedule them to publish at midnight Central Time.  If you need help figuring out what time that is in your time zone, please go to the Time Zone Converter here.

- At the bottom of everyone’s post will be a brief synopsis and link to the other blogger’s posts that are participating.  Please write a 2-3 sentence synopsis of your post.  Though it might feel odd, please write your synopsis in third person format.    If you are able to include the URL prior to it actually going live, this will be very helpful.  Please email your synopsis by Thursday July 19th.

-I will combine all of the synopses and links and forward you the html so that it is all uniform.  The html will not be sent until after 10 am CST on the publish date {so that the correct links can be included}. 


How do we share the Carnival?
-I'd love it if you shared on Facebook, G+, link parties, etc. 
-If you share on Twitter, please use the hashtag associated with the carnival
-To support one another’s efforts, it's desired that participants share the post above theirs.
