A “glitch” in blogcarnival…

May 28, 2010

For those who might be having trouble submitting to the carnival via blogcarnival.com, it seems the carnival has been inadvertently “delisted” from their site, probably because I was tardy in filling in the future host list due to end of semester chaos.  I’ve contacted the site and will hopefully get things back up and running soon, and I’ll post an update once it is.

Update:  Things are back to normal on blogcarnival!

The Giant’s… ahem… Leviathan’s Shoulders #23 is up!

May 18, 2010

The special marine science edition of The Giant’s Shoulders, dubbed The Leviathan’s Shoulders, is up at Deep Sea News!  Many thanks to Kevin Zelnio for putting together this lovely oceanic edition!

What do you think of the idea of  “special editions” for the blog carnival?  Feel free to leave a comment!  If future hosts have suggestions for special editions, send me an email with your idea.

The deadline for the next edition is June 15th, and it will be held at Jost a mon.  Entries can be submitted through blogcarnival.com or directly to the host blog, as usual.

Some happenings!

May 17, 2010

Just a quick note: for those who might be worried, the May edition of The Giant’s Shoulders aka The Leviathan’s Shoulders will be up tomorrow — the host was out of town over the weekend!

I have also finally updated the list of future hosts in the “future carnivals” list; those who volunteered have been given the months they requested.  I’ll be in contact with those volunteers via email in the near future to confirm that the dates are acceptable.

Let me unofficially note that Scicurious’ month is tentatively scheduled to be another “special edition” — I’ll have more details about that in the near future, as well!

5 days until The Leviathan’s Shoulders!

May 10, 2010

Here’s one last reminder:  There’s 5 days left to submit entries for the 23rd installment of The Giant’s Shoulders, a special edition dubbed “The Leviathan’s Shoulders”!  It will be hosted by Kevin Zelnio over at Deep Sea News, and will be a special “oceans edition” of the carnival.  All ordinary entries will still be accepted, but bloggers are encouraged to submit posts on the history of science that deal specifically with oceans and ocean life!   Entries can be submitted through blogcarnival.com or directly to the host blog, as usual.

Let’s make this an extra-special carnival!
