Carnival of Blogging Chicks

One of my plans for the Metablog is to use it as a way to promote your blogs. At first I thought we might use an aggregator but the problem with an aggregator is that you get everything, the good and the bad. The minor post about your sinus infection as well as your more important post about your Samson study (to use my own blog as an example :-). The good stuff can sometimes be buried under the bad stuff. And with so many bloggers, those who post more frequently will bury those who post once a day or once a week.

Doing a Carnival instead allows you to pick the material you want to promote. You have control over what you submit. We will post it here once a week, on Sunday and I will have to receive the posts by Saturday to be included the next day. We will not start this Sunday but the following Sunday.

I will post the guidelines next week. This post was just to introduce the idea and see if there is any interest.

I hope that you will participate and that we can provide those who come here with some interesting content and a nice introduction to the material on your blog. Not only do we get traffic from the Blogging Chicks and the readers of our blogs but from people who click on the "Next Blog" button on Blogger and from those on the Blogger Chicks blogroll and their readers as well. Great potential for increased traffic.
