A “blog carnival” is a collection of links on a particular topic for a given period. I think the idea of a blog carnival first developed out of psychology or sociology blogs, but the first BiblioBlog carnival was Joel Ng at Ebla Logs in March 2005. Sadly, Joel’s blog is long gone, but you can read an archive of it at Peter Kirby’s Biblioblog Top 50.
If you are a blogger and are interested in hosting a future blog, please contact me (@plong42, plong42 at gmail dot com, or leave a comment here and I can contact you). I have Tim Bulkeley at Sansblogue for January 2016 and Jacob Prahlow (@prahlowjacob) at Pursuing Veritas for February 2016, and Brian Renshaw for May 2016. I would love to fill in March and April or even some of the summer months.
