MetaCarnival Calendar & Archives

If you are a blogger or read blogs often, you know that there are a good number of excellent blog carnivals focused on specific themes. What you probably haven’t come across is a high-quality “metacarnival” or “carnival of carnivals”, where you can read the best blog posts ACROSS topics, subjects, disciplines.

This is why MetaCarnivala few blog carnival “organizers” have launched a monthly rotating “MetaCarnival” to feature the most interesting posts from a variety of high-quality blog carnivals. (Cool logo thanks to Kim).

Participating blog carnivals so far, alphabetically: Carnival of the Blue: oceans, Change of Shift: nursing, Encephalon: neuroscience and psychology, Four Stone Hearth: anthropology, Gene Genie: human genetics and personalized medicine, Hourglass: biology of aging, I and the Bird: yes, birds, Medicine 2.0: web 2.0 technologies for healthcare, Praxis: academic life, SurgeXperiences: surgical experiences. We want to recognize Bora for his advice and help in setting this up.

Basically, participating blog carnival “owners” and hosts submit 1-2 Picks of the Month.

– Criteria for participating carnivals: well-maintained, rotating, with regular contributors and editions, good presentation, good posts.

– Criteria for posts to be included in the Meta carnival: the posts should not only be good but also attractive to a wide audience beyond our respective fields, perhaps linked to mainstream news, perhaps building bridges across fields, perhaps simply fascinating.

– Mechanics: Hosting rotates among participants, and editions are to be published the last Monday of each month.
