The Just Write Blog Carnival

As many of you will know, blog carnivals are regular online events where links to interesting blog posts are shared.

Blog carnivals can be great for getting up-to-date info on their specialist topic. And equally, they can provide a great method for bringing your own blog posts to a wider readership.

I wanted to give a mention today, therefore, to the Just Write Blog Carnival, which is hosted on the Incurable Disease of Writing Blog, run by the redoubtable Missy Frye.

I've been supporting this carnival for the last few months, and I'm extremely impressed with it. It appears like clockwork every Friday, and is more reliable (and frequent) than any other writing-related blog carnival I've come across.

Posts are listed in a dozen or so categories, including Book Reviews, Freelance, Encouragement for Writers, Screenwriting, Writing Mechanics, and so on. There are typically 12 to 20 fresh posts in each edition of the carnival, and there is always interesting reading to be found.

I'd also like to recommend the Just Write Blog Carnival as a great one to try if you're new to blog carnivals and have a writing-related blog yourself. Just click here to go to the submission form, and enter details of the post you would like to see in the next edition. Don't forget to choose a category from the list provided.

In addition, if you don't have a post of your own that you want to promote but have seen another you like from someone else, you are encouraged to submit that as well. You can submit more than one link to each edition of the carnival if you like.

Do take a look at the latest edition of the Just Write Blog Carnival at least - and if you have your own writing blog, try submitting one of your own recent posts (make it a good one!).

And please spread the word about the Just Write Blog Carnival as well - the more people who publicize it, the more useful it will become for all its readers and contributors!

Nick! Thank you so much for promoting the carnival. It makes the effort I put into it each work worthwhile.

You're the best!

LOL. You're very welcome, Missy Frye!

I hope my article helps boost the number of people contributing to the Just Write carnival and reading the posts.

As I said above, I've been hugely impressed with the quality and the reliability of your blog carnival. It's certainly not always been the case with other blog carnivals I've known.
