Carnival of the Blogging Chicks # 2

Updated: For the last two weeks of compiling this list, I feared that I would leave someone off and it happened this week. My apologies to Beth for forgetting to add her link! Here it is:

Beth, speaking of a big carnival site and her own Carnival, says, "And here is the site they go to in order to participate-they enter their information, post, blog url, blog title, post title, trackback, I get an email-post to my blog, so you see how it goes, one big circle. Another way of getting traffic to all the blogs in the blogroll.

This is the link where they submit the info. The Stupid People Carnival should already be highlighted, if not this is the one they choose. Once I post the actual submissions, I ping his site and it all goes from there."

Please don't forget to link to the Carnival whether you are in it or not.
