What the heck is a blog carnival?! Well, a blog carnival is simply that- a festive, fun-filled blogging and reading experience! But it is so much more- truly a collaborative writing effort where bloggers and sites with similar interests host a “carnival” of content on a periodic basis. The blog carnivals are a wonderful way to gather theme-oriented content in a single reading experience, with creative layout, graphics, and links to articles and other sites. Last week I was browsing and found the “Home of the Carnival of Education,” a blog called The Education Wonks… a really informative blog on current issues in teaching and education. As it happens, I had written a short post about my son titled Kindergarten University a few days before, and although I didn’t even know blog carnivals existed until then, on a whim I submitted my kindergarten post. And today it was included by Carol at The Median Sib , hosting this week’s Carnival of Education, a wonderful mix of education content (thanks for including me!).
