No blogger is an island. We need each other. Many times young or new bloggers feel terrified about promoting another bloggers blogs or posts. They fear that they will be loosing traffic or readers. But the opposite is often true. Promoting someone else's posts will in turn bring much needed traffic and readers to your blog. Here’s one way of doing it.
A Blog Carnival is a particular kind of blog community. There are many kinds of blogs, and they contain articles on many kinds of topics. Blog Carnivals typically collect together links pointing to blog articles on a particular topic. A Blog Carnival is like a magazine. It has a title, a topic, editors, contributors, and an audience. Editions of the carnival typically come out on a regular basis (e.g. every Monday, or on the first of the month). Each edition is a special blog article that consists of links to all the contributions that have been submitted, often with the editors opinions or remarks.
There is so much stuff in the blog-o-sphere, just finding interesting stuff is hard. If there is a carnival for a topic you are interested in, following that carnival is a great way to learn what bloggers are saying about that topic. If you are blogging on that topic, the carnival is the place to share your work with like-minded bloggers.
So here is our edition of the Web Developers blog carnival. Will will be trying to do this on a weekly basis. If you missed out on this issue, then not to worry, our next issue will be up soon, Just check out our blog carnival index page.
