Carnival of Australia (Updated)

Update: The Carnival is up, despite Blogger swallowing it at the 80 percent stage, my first major blogging melt down. Now I know what it is like James (and others). Featured this time are Pommygranate and myself, along with some other Bloggy Aussies and the Englishmans take on nude car washes in Brisbane.

I am hosting Carnival of Australia on the 23rd of May, later this week. If anyone is inspired and has an Australian angle, you can submit using the widget on my sidebar.

Just some general observation about hosting carnivals. It is a good way to drive traffic to your blog, but the effect is short, once bloggers egos have been stroked. You don't have to go and look for posts, since the links are sent to you. The mechanics of putting together the carnival if you choose to hold one are very easy, since the basic html is provided in the submission. You can make it as simple or as jazzy as you like.

Thanks Mates

I laughed when I saw that on a blog when somebody had attributed something to me after Ian used that as the link.
