Are you familiar with the concept of a blogging carnival? It’s essentially where a blogger curates the writing of many others and hosts it on their blog.
If you’re familiar with the ‘Best of HR Blogs’ from Michael Carty, this is exactly what he’s doing.
I guess the main difference with a carnival is that the hosting blogger can choose a theme, and there’s no personal choice about what makes the cut.
So, what do you have to do? Write a blog post. Simples.
The theme I’d like to go for is “Small steps”.
Interpret that as you will. That’s why it’s a theme.
If you’d like to take part, all you need to do is write something on your blog with that theme in mind. Please do this by Saturday 24th May, and I’ll aim to curate and publish for Monday 26th May.
If you’d like a flavour of what this looks like, the last time I did this was in October 2012.
Why do it? I really have no easy answer to that. It can be fun. It may not drive any traffic to your blog. It may help spread your blogging profile. It may do nothing. It may help you get back into blogging. It may give you something to write about for your blog. It may just be a luxury. It may be a good moment to reflect.
I’m quite interested to see what this could spark for people. What will you write? Will it be writing at all? Will it be a video? Or a podcast? Or a poem?
Go on, have some fun.
