Jacob Prahlow posted the Biblical Studies Carnival for February 2016 at Perusing Veritas. Jacob did a great job collecting many of the best and brightest posts made in the month of February. Take a break from obsessing over Super Tuesday and head over to his blog, click and the links and thank Jacob for his hard work.
In other biblio-blogging news, Manuel HG at Masora digital offers a Spanish Biblioblog Carnival. I am sure there have been other Spanish carnivals, but this is the first in a while and I hope Manuel makes this a continuing tradition! If you are not a regular reader of Manuel’s English blog, Biblical Studies Online, you should add it to your reading lists.
Jim West’s Alt-Carnival is dedicated to the worst of Biblio-Blogging, the “the most egregiously inaccurate, the most dilettantish.” It is all in good fun, so check out Jim’s list and pray you are not included. I made the cut as “Phil “The Soul Crusher” Long.” I can live with that.
I met Brian Small at the SBL Midwest meeting. It is always nice to meeting people “in real life” after reading their blogs for years. Brian always offers a small collection of Hebrews Highlights the month, including book reviews and all things Hebrews.
If you use FlipBoard to read blogs, consider following my Biblical Studies magazine. The Web-based version is OK, but Flipboard is an essential app for your iOS device. I use it on my iPad for news and other special interests.
The next few carnivals will be hosted by:
- March 2016 (Due April 1) – N. T. Wrong
- April 2016 (May 1) – Jeff Carter at That Jeff Carter Was Here
- May 2016 (June 1) – Brian Renshaw, @renshaw330
- June 2016 (July 1) – Kris Lyle at Old School Script, @KristopherLyle
I have included a link to the site hosting as well as a twitter account so you can nominate posts during the month by sending them directly to the host. If you do not have a twitter account, contact the host via their blog.
As always I am looking for volunteers for the rest of the year (after July). Carnivals are a great way to attract attention to your site if you are new blogger, but more importantly it gives you a chance to highlight the best and the brightest in the world of BibliBlogs. Please email me (plong42 at gmail.com) or direct message on Twitter (@plong42). You can also leave a comment here with your contact info and I will get back to you.
