Don't forget that we have a Carnival tomorrow

I've only received one entry. The Carnival is open to all female bloggers and it's an Easter/Passover theme. It doesn't have to be religious since Easter is a national holiday (at least here in America).

We will be having a Easter/Passover Carnival this Sunday

This Carnival is open to all female bloggers whether you are on the blogroll or not.

Feel free to email me your description and link by Saturday at 12 midnight (EST).

The following week, Easter Sunday, there will be no Carnival.

Carnival of the Blogging Chicks #33 Movie/TV Theme

Please email me if you'd like to be added to the Carnival. Next week there won't be a theme.

I've rewritten the requirements page, you might want to read it because I mention the purpose of the blogroll and why I require everyone to display the blogroll.

I also collected all the links to the past Carnivals and put them in the Carnival post (there's a link for it in the menu above).

Announcement: A Carnival on Emotional Eating

Talia is having a Carnival on Emotional Eating and is looking for contributions:
I am looking for anything on emotional eating – people’s personal struggles with stress or emotional eating or eating disorders, how they overcame those eating problems and any tips they’d like to share. I’m not looking for general dieting tips as this is covered elsewhere. Instead I’d like to focus on the emotional aspects of eating.

More information on the carnival is here including a link to submit

Hey, people! We have a Carnival!

I would think that you all would have no problem with a book theme. Just dig into your archive and send me a link (and a description) to a book review or whatever that's related to books. As of now, I only have four entries.

BTW, the theme for next week's Carnival is favorite TV show or movie.

Announcement: A search engine for women

Michelle of scribbit has created a search engine that searches the blogs of women:
It's a custom search engine powered by Google that searches select blogs on parenting, crafts, cooking, gardening and blogs by women. Normally when you search for a word or phrase Google returns millions of results, displaying the most popular based on their magic algorithms. For my custom search engine I have narrowed Google's parameters so that a search here will only return results from the blogs I've specified.

What does this mean?

Say you're writing a post on helping your child learn to read and would like to add to what others have written on the subject, by searching with this custom search engine you'd learn what Thrifty Mommy, Play Library, Rocks in My Dryer, Izzy Mom or the other thousand blogs on parenting have to say on the subject.
