It’s called a carnival of blogs and Joel Wagner and I started one for Music Education 5 months ago! This is a great way for you all to get more exposure to your work(s) meet new folks and spread the word about music, education, and/or technology!
I’ve started a home page for the carnival that can be found right here:
Here is the basic info right from the source:
The Music Education Blog Carnival was created and is maintained by Dr. Joseph Pisano of MusTech.net and Joel of SoYouWantToTeach.comin order to promote the great works being done by Music Education Bloggers across the Internet.
The Music Education Blog Carnival is published on the 1st of every month and is a recognized member of the communities of blogs as indexed by BlogCarnival.com. All writings submitted to the Music Education Blog Carnival are examined to ensure that they are valid, interesting, and related to our discussion topic(s).
If you would like to be considered as a host for an upcoming edition of the Music Education Blog Carnival please use the contact form and let us know.
The next host will be my good friend Travis J. Weller over at Composing Like Mad! The November Carnival will be up on November 1st. Get cracking today and send your submission, it’s easy! You don’t need to write something new, submit one of your old “favorites” or a “best”. Whatever you do, join the carnival today!
More about becoming a host in a future post! AND, if you’ve been a contributor to the carnival before, keep it coming…don’t forget to promote the upcoming carnivals on your blogs as well!
