An Outdoorsy Carnival

My first ever edition of An Outdoorsy Carnival will take place on July 1, 2008. If you would like to participate, submit your post here.

Where it asks you for a permalink, just copy and past the URL of your blog POST (not your blog address, though there is a spot for that too) . Your name can be you name or your alias. Your email is necessary to get your submission receipt, and it remains hidden. (You won't get spammed). You can add comments, but they aren't necessary.

Here are the details:
Each carnival will take place on or about the 1st of each month, at least to begin with. Any posts about outdoor-related activities go, please submit your post within the appropriate category. If it fits into two categories, choose the best one. You may submit more than one post per carnival, but only if they are in different categories.

Categories include:
  • In the Woods: hiking, trails, camping, etc
  • Aquatic Life: swimming, boating, canoing, kayaking, waterfalls, lakes, photography of water, and so on
  • Green Thumb: lawn and garden, gardening, flowers, plants, veggies, photography of such, etc
  • Outdoor Olympians: running, biking, outdoor team sports
  • Advice Column: where you GIVE outdoorsy tips and advice, not where you ask for it
  • Open Air: If you are not sure where to file your post, use this category. I may add more categories if it seems there are popular topics within Open Air.
If you are having trouble figuring out how to submit a post, contact me or leave a comment.

What's a blog carnival? It is a post on a host blog about a particular topic. It provides links to the posts that the other participants submitted. It's a fun way to share your posts about a particular topic with other bloggers and blog readers. Still confused? Here is a carnival that I hosted before.

Hey Keeps! Thanks for the heads up!

Good Morning Keeper,

Am I to submit a new blog for your July carnival or will you be using my first one from the EB carnival?

I have plenty, so if I forget in the future, your reminders are perfect.
