Triangle TRACKS and Charlotte TRACKS, two social networks I administer for North Carolina parents that link to thousands of resources for North Carolina kids, are hosting their first “blog carnivals.”
Many of both networks’ members run wonderful blogs covering a variety of topics. I’d like to share some of their posts with members and visitors of both sites through this blog carnival, which will link to one blog post from each participating blogger. If you have a blog and would like to drive traffic from Triangle TRACKS or Charlotte TRACKS to your blog, consider participating in this blog carnival. Here are the rules:
1. You must be a member of Triangle TRACKS or Charlotte TRACKS to participate. To join, visit the sites and click on “Sign Up.”
2. Your post—but not necessarily your overall blog—must be related to children in some way. It could cover a topic relating to or combining topics focusing on parenting, child development, children’s trends, childhood memories or other related topics.
3. Your blog must allow comment-posting so our members and visitors can post their thoughts and/or questions.
4. You must link to Triangle TRACKS or Charlotte TRACKS somewhere in your blog entry or on your blog’s front page.
Email your blog post link to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by Friday, Aug. 21. We’ll review the entries then post the blog carnival on the Triangle TRACKS and Charlotte TRACKS home pages Aug. 24-Sept. 4. The top three posts that generate the most discussion (in the form of comments or questions) will be awarded their own promotional box on the the TRACKS home page for two weeks, and include a link to the winning blogs’ RSS feed or subscription page. This is a wonderful way to use your blog to reach out to other North Carolina parents. We can’t wait to read your posts! Got questions? Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
