Christian Carnival XXXI Submissions

This week’s Christian Carnival is being hosted tomorrow at Parableman. It’s a great way to get recognition for your blog. Submit your best post from the past week , since last Tuesday at midnight, on a Christian-related theme (it can include politics but only if it’s from a Christian perspective). If you don’t have a post you want to submit, maybe a friend or favorite blogger does.

Please include the following information in an email and put Christian Carnival in the subject line:

Blog name
Blog URL
post name
post URL
trackback URL for your post if you would like a trackback
brief description of post

Email your submission to jrpierce at syr.edu and include a read receipt request to make sure he received it. Remever, put Christian Carnival in the subject line, or it may be deleted as junk mail.

[Update] Jeremy at Parableman made the following comment that I don’t want missed:

A read request doesn’t ensure that I read it, because all the junk mail I delete gets marked as read so I’ll know if there’s anything that got diverted to my junk mail folder that might not be junk.

I deliberately didn’t put the midnight marker on it because I think such beginning deadlines are immoral. If someone is ahead of the game and submits something on Monday and then writes a killer post the next day but already submitted something that week, I think it should be eligible for the next Carnival. That’s why I use the deliberately vague “since the last Carnival”, since it doesn’t say whether it’s since the last Carnival was posted, since the last deadline, or since the last time you submitted a post. Also, the submission deadlines vary from week to week, and it’s a pain to go looking through the last week’s host’s entries to find the time, though in your case you know it because it was you.
