Since this site was born, I've participated to every possible Carnival, sometimes getting a strange feeling... It seemed to me that the topic for said Carnival was surely cool, but that I had more interesting things to say about something else.
When Trading with Zoxy asked some time ago to all the bloggers an entry for the Best Blog posts of the Year I thought: "why making this just once in a year?". Most people publish on a daily basis, so a month should already be full of wonderful posts!
Now, quoting Wikipedia:
A blog carnival is a type of blog event. It is similar to a magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic, and is published on a regular schedule, often weekly or monthly. Each edition of a blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains permalinks to other blog articles on the particular topic.So what I'm proposing now isn't exactly a Carnival (even if the topic of which we all speak, gold making, is already quite specific), but I won't try to find another name...
I'm proposing the following rules:
- You have to host your post entirely on your blog.
- You will have to put on your entry a link to this page on my site, which will host the list of the posts in the Carnival, stating clearly that the post is part of the Best of the month Blog Carnival, hosted by Not So Secret Society.
- Entry will be accepted for the first four days of the following month, and the list of posts will be published on the fifth day... i.e., if you wish to submit a post made in December, you have time until January the fourth, and the compilation of posts will be published on January the fifth.
The page in which I'll coordinate it all and that you should follow is this: Best of the month Blog Carnival
