This week, The Showcase — the rotating carnival highlighting new blogs — will be ...(drum roll)... here!
Yes, they finally relented and have allowed this little blog to host The Showcase! I guess I can let their heads up out of the water now.
If you are a new blogger, enter your blog in The Showcase.
What's a new blogger? Well, you've been blogging less than three months. The submissions are for the week of July 26 - August 1. That means, if your blog came online on or after April 26, 2005, you can enter.
What's that you say? You just missed the cutoff? And you didn't know about The Showcase? Gosh, you are new.
If that's the case, though, enter anyway and submit a lame excuse. But it better be a good lame excuse. None of this "the dog ate my blog." Unless, of course, the dog did eat your blog. Then, it's okay.
Oh, and when you enter your blog, it's a darn good idea to have The Showcase on your blogroll. And, if you don't know how to add a blog to your blogroll ... well, gosh, you are new, aren't you?!
Here's how to enter your blog. Use the handy-dandy Carnival Submission Form that's provided by Conservative Cat. No, you don't have to be conservative — or a cat — to enter. But it won't hurt. The entry selection for The Showcase is the third one. It says "Showcase Carnival." See how handy and dandy that is?
Anyway, submissions are being accepted between now and August 1, 2005.
Enter your new blog in The Showcase.
It's Free! It's Fun! It's The Showcase!
