Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: New Blog Showcase Carnival

The New Carnival is here! The New Carnival is here!

Yay!

Welcome to the sort-of anniversary edition of the New Blog Showcase Carnival (or New Blog Carnival Showcase, if you prefer)!

First, a brief history -- the New Blog Showcase Carnival (or New Blog Carnival Showcase, if you prefer) was started a long time ago. When? I don't know. It was before this here blog was born, that's for sure.

It was initially started by the well-known NZ Bear. At some point in time, NZ Bear became too busy to keep the carnivals going, so Simon took it over. That was about Feb 14th, 2005.

Simon kept the carnival going until around June of 2005, then realized he couldn't do the carnival justice. Since that time, yours truly has been keeping the carnival going, including a cool new design to the main Showcase site (to make it even more carnival-like!)

The New Blog Showcase Carnival (or New Blog Carnival Showcase, if you prefer) is designed to highlight new blogs. That's pretty much it. Feel free to head over to that main page and read all about the carnival.

Perhaps you can remember some time in the past when you started your blog. Perhaps you remember making your first post and wondering why the entire internet was not in awe, reading your blog, and writing comments that proclaimed your greatness. And then, perhaps you can remember it was because not only was no one reading your blog, no one even knew about it!

The New Blog Showcase Carnival (or New Blog Carnival Showcase, if you prefer) hopes to alleviate those painful days. Each week the carnival showcases blogs that are new (less than 3 months old). Then, the carnival is promoted far and wide (you DO promote it, right?) so the new blogs can get exposure.

So, if you're a new blog, be sure and read about how to submit your blog (over on the main page). If you KNOW a new blog, be sure to get it submitted as well (anyone can submit a new blog). And if you're NOT a new blog, then each week you should check the main page and visit the new blogs. It only takes a minute and you might find a really great blog to start reading every week.

So, without further discussion, this week's New Blog Showcase Carnival (or New Blog Carnival Showcase, if you prefer):

Living the Scientific Life.

Well, that's it! No, really, no other new blogs were submitted this week.

Therefore, you have NO EXCUSE not to quickly head on over there and visit. If nothing else, you can go waste some time Playing Geography games!

And another entry: Big Heads, Little Helmets, and Plagiocephaly from Mom.
