29th June 2007
If you are interested in hosting an upcoming Biblical Studies Carnival, let me know. I have hosts arranged through October 2007:
- Biblical Studies Carnival XX (Claude Mariottini, Dr. Claude Mariottini – Professor of Old Testament – August 2007)
- Biblical Studies Carnival XXI (Duane Smith, Abnormal Interests – September 2007)
- Biblical Studies Carnival XXII (Tim Bulkeley, Sansblogue – October 2007)
I wouldn’t mind setting the schedule through 2007 at least. If youâ€™re an established blogger who knows your way around the biblical studies related blogs (dare I say, “biblioblogs”), please volunteer to host a future Biblical Studies Carnival.
Hosting requires a fair amount of work. While there are a number of nominations submitted, as host you have to make sure to keep track of worthy posts throughout the month you are responsible for. The benefits of hosting are many. Not only do you get to see for yourself what is being written in the blogosphere in the field of academic biblical studies, hosting also highlights your own blog.
The goal is to rotate the Carnivals among a variety of different people, so if you have already hosted a Carnival, I will prioritize new bloggers. That being said, if you are interested in a hosting a second time, please do let me know.
The only additional requirement is to ensure that full contact details for the next host are included in your Carnival and to send the coordinator an email immediately before or right after posting the Carnival so that the Biblical Studies Carnival Homepage can be updated.
So if you are interested in hosting, send me an email at codex [at] biblical-studies [dot] ca with your full name, the name and url of your blog, and your preferred month.
