In other Biblioblog news, Jim West puts the P in pool for his his Avignonian Carnival, this time giving as a “best of” for each day. Peter Kirby’s Christian Origins is now aggregating biblioblogs and providing a nice digest of links for the week categorized into “Top 20 Biblical Commentary Posts,” “Top 15 Biblical Criticism Posts” and “Radical Criticism Posts.” The site also indexes comments. Peter has not been blogging much and the top 50 list seems dormant again. Is there anyone out there who wants to re-boot a quarterly top fifty list?
In personal blog news, I started a Biblical Studies Flipboard Magazine. If you are using Flipboard on your iPad or phone, feel free to follow me. I also have a few papers on Academia.edu if you are using that excellent site.
Looking ahead to future Biblioblog Carnivals, I do not have a volunteer for July carnival yet. If you are interested, please let me know ASAP. I have a couple of asks out, but no one has responded yet. If someone wants to take October, I can do July myself.

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. If you would like to host a Carnival in 2015 or early 2016, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), on DM on twitter (@plong42) or a comment on this post and I can contact you.
