Reading Acts is hosting the July Biblical Studies Carnival! This is big news, at least to people who read BiblioBlogs. If you do not know what a Biblical Studies Carnival is, head on over to Political Jesus for the June Carnival, or an equally grand carnival at Kata Markon. A carnival is a way to give some well deserved recognition to people who are doing great work on their blog. Who are you regularly reading? What posts are provocative, interesting, or just plain funny?
This is a second “call for links” to blogs of significance posted in the month of July. I will take links right up until 7/31, but the sooner you nominate a blog, the more likely I will include it in the carnival. Email me directly at plong42 -at- gmail.com, with the words “biblical carnival” in the subject. I have a good list already, but feel free to make suggests. Self-nominations are acceptable, if you do not toot your own horn it might not every get tooted. Or something like that.
A second Blog-Carnival related request: Jim Linville has given up the joy of organizing the blog-carnivals, so I volunteered to organize them through the end of the year. I need volunteers to take a month, starting with August (to be posted about September 1) through December. Please email me with your preferred month.
Why should you host a carnival on your Blog? Aside from the obvious fame and fortune associated with Carnival hosting, it is a chance to highlight blogs which you find helpful contributions to the world of Bibliblogging. If you are relatively new biblioblogger, this is a chance to drive some traffic to your own blog as well.
