The Working / Learning Blog Carnival seems to have been on vacation for a while. Time to reopen.
The idea of a carnival is a regular collection of posts with some common thread. In this case, we’re talking about posts relating to the theme of work at learning; learning at work.
If you don’t know much about blog carnivals, there are three mains parts:
- Participants write a post connected to the overall theme, publishing that post on their blogs on the designated day.
- One blogger acts as the host for the carnival, publishing a short description and a link to each participating post. (In return, each participant posts a link to the “host post” so readers of the one blog can find the rest of the carnival.)
- The carnival appears on a regular basis.
Once a month seems good for now. Past editions of the Working / Learning carnival appeared on the third Monday of the month. If I can get at least four hosts to step up, we’re covered for the rest of the year.
Can’t have a blog carnival without posts, though. Our process hasn’t been very bureaucratic: if you want to participate, just write a post ahead of time (or, if you must, recycle a hit from the past) and send the permalink and a description to the host. You don’t need an invitation; you don’t need to make a commitment to join each time.
It’s a good way to discover other bloggers you might not follow, and someone might discover you as well.
