I am fortunate enough to have the privilege of hosting the 96th edition of the Christian Carnival next week on Wednesday, November 16. The Carnival is a weekly gathering of some of the most interesting writing in the Christian blogosphere. I've had several posts included in past Carnivals; it's a great way to have one's writing exposed to a larger audience. It's also an excellent way of discovering new blogs to add to your reading list.
Matt Jones' blog provides a complete list of all the past Christian Carnivals, so you can go back and read at any time (I have included the link in the "Inspiration for the Mission" section of the Resources here).
Below, I have posted the basic instructions for contributing a post to the Christian Carnival. Full details and policy for Christian Carnival submissions can be found here.
Contributing a Post to the Christian Carnival
The Christian Carnival is open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of the Carnival is to expose readers to a broad range of Christian thought. Posts need not be of a theological topic. Posts about home life, politics, or current events, for example, written from a Christian worldview, are welcome.
As the goal of this Carnival is to highlight Christian thought in the blogosphere, entries will be limited to blogs that share that goal. A level of discourse that is suitable for a Christian showcase is also expected. Entries may be refused if they engage in name-calling, ad hominem attacks, offensive language, or for any similar reason, as judged by the administrator (Dory at Wittenberg Gate).
You may contribute any post written during the seven days preceding the Christian Carnival (Wednesday). You may wish to consider that the readership of the Christian Carnival will be more varied than your usual readership, and you might do better contributing a post with broad appeal.
You may contribute only one post per blog.
Email Christian Carnival's submission gmail address (ChristianCarnival@gmail.com) with the following details:
* The name of your blog and a link to your main site (Adding the name with a hyperlink would be a nice courtesy to the host).
* The title of your post and the URL of the post (Again, adding the title with a hyperlink would be helpful).
* If you want a trackback, include a trackback link (Tracking back is optional. Some hosts may oblige you, others may not have the time or ability).
Include a short (one or two sentence) description of the post. Your description may be edited by the host, but is often used just as it is.
