As you all may have seen in this prior post, I decided to host a blog carnival. I confess I had never heard of the idea until that week, but it immediately sounded like a great idea. Essentially, I advertised my “carnival” at the blog carnival website. By doing so, interested bloggers in the law enforcement / police arena were invited to submit entries for posting in a central location. That location will be on this special page within The Philosophical Cop!
I have already received half a dozen or so pieces, and I hope to make this a semi-annual or even monthly event, where the best cop bloggers can submit interesting and enlightening work. Hope you will come visit on January 15th, when the inaugural Cops and Lawmen Blog Carnival kicks off!
Who wants to go to a carnival?
I read about the concept of a blog “carnival” and immediately got hooked! Essentially, by hosting a carnival, a blogger invites all the talented bloggers in their field or discipline to share posts at a central site. It is free, anonymous (if you want) and allows the authors to share ideas.
There were no “cop” carnivals scheduled, so I started our own! I added a page to this blog to host the first “Cops and Lawmen” blog carnival. If you are a blogger that covers any law enforcement related topic, please go to this site and submit using the simple instructions. The deadline is December 15, 2007 and I will attempt to organize and publish our entries by January 15, 2008.
Hopefully we can make this a periodic event…it can only help us all share ideas and have some fun! See you at the carnival.
