Jim West shows everyone how to write a Biblical Studies Carnival with his January 2020 carnival. Jim has been blogging since Zwingli was a young pastor of the Grossmünster. His carnival is “fully stocked, cleverly curated, and vividly presented.” It really is a good carnival, so Carnival Rookies take note.Great links, some humor, and he used a pic of one of my students doing archaeology.
One unique feature to this month’s carnival is a section on “Tweets and Tweeters.” Like a certain world leader, Jim uses Twitter quite a bit and has a few interesting threads and tweets. Think of this as a list of people to follow on Twitter. If you do not twitter, then this paragraph made no sense whatsoever.
Bob MacDonald is hosting the February carnival (due March 1) and newcomer Brent Niedergall hosts in March 2020 (Due April 1). I am looking for volunteers for the rest of 2020. If you hosted in 2019 feel free to volunteer again, but I am also interested in getting new bloggers and podcasters involved. Six of the hosts in 2019 were first-time hosts.
Carnivals are fun to write and a good Carnival draws attention to your blog. The Amateur Exegete posted his year in Blog Summary recently, his August 2019 carnival was his second most popular post of the year.
I would love to hear from a few volunteers and fill out the 2020 Biblioblog schedule, so contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or twitter dm @plong42 to volunteer to host!
