Last Call for Biblical Studies Carnival Links for September 2018

Summer Carnival

Celebrate the end of long hot summer with the September 2018 Biblical Studies Carnival hosted by Jim West, the Grand Poobah of Biblio-blogging. Jim has hosted many carnivals and often has focused on some particular issue or theme. Not sure what he has planned for this carnival, but he is asking for readers to send him nominations for the best and brightest blog posts on biblical or theological topics, biblical languages, Church history, archaeology, or anything else you think worthy of inclusion in this Month’s carnival. Contact him on Zwinglius Redivivus  or direct message him on Twitter @drjewest, or you can try his FaceBook group, Biblical Studies Discussion List. He may have Pinterest and Etsy account as well.

Looking ahead to the last few months of the year, Jacob Prahlow @prahlowjacob hosts in October 2018 (Due November 1) at Pursuing Veritas. Bob MacDonald @drmacdonald will host in November 2018 (Due December 1) at Dust. I am sure they would appreciate some help as their carnival time draws close.

At this point I have no one for December 2018 (Due January 1) and the 2019 carnival schedule completely open. I would like to have a volunteer for December and start filling in the 2019 schedule. If you are a new blogger, hosting a carnival is a great way to get some exposure. I would also like to see some veterans host again. Contact me via email plong42@gmail.com, or DM on Twitter @plong42 or leave a comment here and I can contact you.

Last Call for Biblical Studies Carnival Links for June 2016

carnivalThe June Biblioblog Carnival will be hosted by Kris Lyle  and Old School Script. This is a relatively new blog and Kris has been posting quite a bit of useful Contact Kris on this blog or  via twitter @KristopherLyle. I am sure he is nearly finished selecting his links, but if you have something you think is carnival worthy, send Brian a link. What have you read this month that was challenging, simulating, or maybe even a bit strange? This is a good time to promote a less well-known blog you enjoy, or you can send a link to your own work.

Some readers may not know what a “blog carnival” is. Simply, 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.

I took over as the “keeper of the list” from Dr Jim Linville in August of 2012. Basically that means I find volunteers to host the carnival. In fact, I am always looking for volunteers to host future carnivals!  Right now I have June covered, but I need someone for July (due Aug 1) and August (due Sept 1). I know there are a few relatively new bloggers who might like the chance to host, now is the time!

Hosting a carnival is a great way to draw readers to your blog and it is really fun to do. Contact me either by leaving a comment here, or sending me an email (plong42 at gmail.com) or a direct message via twitter (@plong42).

What have you read this month that was challenging, simulating, or maybe even a bit strange? This is a good time to promote a less well-known blog you enjoy, or you can send a link to your own work.

Jennifer told me she was working hard on the Carnival, but if you send her a link or two she might be able to use them. What have you read this month that was challenging, simulating, or maybe even a bit strange? This is a good time to promote a less well-known blog you enjoy, or you can send a link to your own work.

Last Call for Biblical Studies Carnival Links for November 2015

Jim West Blogging

Jim West Blogging

The November BiblioBlog Carnival will be hosted by Jim West at Zwinglius Redivivus. Jim was busy at SBL/AAR snapping pics and taking names. Jim is not the kind of person to let a scrapbook opportunity pass him by!

So if you are recovered from your tryptophan stupor (or football hangover), send a few links Jim’s way, he might just appreciate it. You can direct message him on twitter, @drjewest or leave a comment on his blog.

I have the next three carnivals lined up: December 2015 (Due Jan 1) will be hosted by Jennifer Guo (@jenniferguo); January 2016 (Due Feb 1) is Tim Bulkeley at Sansblogue; February 2016 (Due March 1) is Jacob Prahlow (@prahlowjacob) and Pursuing Veritas. I need a volunteer for March (Due April 1) and April (due May 1) host, Brian Renshaw will host in May (due June 1). After June, the rest of year is still open if you want to reserve a month. Contact me via twitter direct message (@plong42) or email (plong42 @ gmail.com).

Last Call for Biblical Studies Carnival Links for October 2015

bs-carnival1The October Biblioblog Carnival will be hosted right here at Reading Acts. 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. That blog is not long gone, but you can read an archive of it at Peter Kirby’s Biblioblog Top 50.

I invite you to email me suggested links (plong42 at gmail.com) or a direct message via twitter (@plong42).  What have you read this month that was challenging, simulating, or maybe even a bit strange? This is a good time to promote a less well-known blog you enjoy, or you can send a link to your own work. Sometimes you just need to flog your own blog to get it noticed.

I may or may not use every link sent to me, but I am always grateful for your help. I will try to finish up the carnival while hiding in my office on Halloween, hording all the candy to myself.

Last Call for Biblical Studies Carnival Links for August 2015

bs-carnival1This is the last call for links for the August Biblioblog Carnival hosted by Bob MacDonald (@drmacdonald). I know Bob has been busy all month collecting the best contributions to biblical studies and theology on the web in August, but he can always use your help. Feel free to send him your suggestions soon, on September 1 he will post his Carnival.

William Brown and The Biblical Review (@willhartbrown) is hosting the September carnival. Would you like to host a Biblioblog Carnival? Please email me (plong42 at gmail.com) and pick your month. I have a few spots open this year, and I am starting to fill in months for 2016 already. I would love to see some previous hosts return, but new blogs are encouraged as well.

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.
