When Greg first mentioned this carnival idea, it didn’t really make an impression. But now that it’s been actualized and is making the rounds I can see the absolute brilliance of the idea. It serves so many purposes. First, it highlights bloggers who are writing great stuff and who may not yet be on people’s radar screen (probably because they haven’t been at it too long). Second, it physically brings people to different blogs every week that they might not otherwise visit, also expanding their biblioblog repetoire. Third, it’s a great reader’s digest version of the best material of the week for those of us who don’t have the time to read everything. Finally, it motivates some people to write thoughtful, interesting posts so that they can be submitted for the carnival. What a cool idea!
