Have you ever heard of a blog carnival? It’s when one blogger requests that other bloggers publish posts on a certain topic and then the carnival host(ess) publishes a post on their blog with links to everyone’s submissions. For example, Keeper of the Home hosts a blog carnival about organic gardening. I thought I would host a carnival each month and solicit posts about container gardening. It’s win-win. Life on the Balcony readers get exposure to great container gardening posts, and the bloggers who participate get a little link love.
For the January Carnival, I’m seeking posts about growing plants you can eat. You can write about your experience growing vegetables last season, provide advice about how to grow a specific fruit tree, or dream about the great herbs you plan on growing in 2010. The only qualification for entry into the carnival is that (1) the post is about a plant or plants that you can eat, and (2) the post is about container gardening. If you need help or have a question, don’t hestitate to email me.
To submit a post, use this form: Container Gardening Blog Carnival Page. You can find it by going to Contact > Blog Carnival at the top of the page too. You need to publish your post on your blog and submit it through the blog carnival submission page by January 15th. I’ll be publishing the carnival on the 18th.
You are free to use the image at the top of this post or this badge if you participate, but you must download them and host them yourself (i.e. right click and chose “save image” and then upload it to your website, or to a hosting service, like PhotoBucket or Flickr).
Don’t have a blog? I hope you’ll check in on the 18th and share your edible container gardening thoughts in the comments of the blog carnival post!
