Carnival of the Blogging Chicks #8 Favorite Things Theme

OK, so it's 2:30 in the morning and I'm tired and falling asleep. I'm posting this even though I haven't tested all the links. I'll do so in the morning. If I forgot your post, email me and I will put you in. Please don't forget to link to the Carnival, it's our collective traffic that makes the Carnival a success.

Updated to add: OK, it is morning and Blogger is being a pain in the hindquarters but I've been able to overcome it all to bring you the Carnival. I checked all the links and they should be working.

Please let your readers know this week that next Sunday's Carnival is open to all female bloggers, so if they've wanted to do a Carnival but didn't want to join the blogroll, this would be their chance. Please let them know that I do have one rule, if you participate, you have to link to the Carnival Sunday morning. That's the rule for this Carnival only, all participants must link to the Carnival. Also, please let them know that it's a theme Carnival, "Why I Love Blogging." "What I Love About Blogging"
