Presenting A Blog Carnival With The Topic "Lifetype-Powered"

Posted by coldtobi | 21 Jun, 2007, 12:06


I decided to start a blog-carnival at http://blogcarnival.com.

What is a blog carnival?

Glad you asked:

A blog carnival is a type of blog event. It is similar to a magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic, and is published on a regular schedule, often weekly or monthly. Each edition of a blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains permalinks links to other blog articles on the particular topic.

There are many variations, but typically, someone who wants to organize a carnival posts details of the theme or topic to their blog, and asks readers to submit relevant articles for inclusion in an upcoming edition. The host then collects links to these submissions, edits and annotates them (often in very creative ways), and publishes the resulting round-up to his or her blog.

Many carnivals have a home page or principal organizer, who lines up guest bloggers to host each edition. This means that the carnival travels, appearing on a different blog each time.

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Submission Guidlines to this blog carnival

As the title already implies, only blogs are allowed to enter the event, which are running the lifetype (formerly known as plog) blog software. If you want to know more about this fine piece of software, point your favourite browser to lifetype.net.

What should I submit? 

Select one article of your blog, maybe the one you like best. 

There are some limitations on its content, especially it should be appropiate for all audience. As a rule-of-thumb, it should be acceptable to google's adsense guidelines. (Not because I use adsense on my blog, they just cover the most important things I do not want to see here.) Heres a quote of the relevant section, describing what is not allowed: 

  • Violent content, racial intolerance, or advocacy against any individual, group, or organization
  • Pornography, adult, or mature content
  • Hacking/cracking content
  • Illicit drugs and drug paraphernalia
  • Excessive profanity
  • Gambling or casino-related content
  • Content regarding programs which compensate users for clicking on ads or offers, performing searches, surfing websites, or reading emails
  • Excessive, repetitive, or irrelevant keywords in the content or code of web pages
  • Deceptive or manipulative content or construction to improve your site's search engine ranking, e.g., your site's PageRank
  • Sales or promotion of weapons or ammunition (e.g., firearms, fighting knives, stun guns)
  • Sales or promotion of beer or hard alcohol
  • Sales or promotion of tobacco or tobacco-related products
  • Sales or promotion of prescription drugs
  • Sales or promotion of products that are replicas or imitations of designer goods
  • Sales or distribution of term papers or student essays
  • Any other content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity, or infringes on the legal rights of others
