By the way, contributing to carnivals is a great way to promote your blog. Bora of Blog Around the Clock has a full explanation but here are my top three reasons:
- Carnivals drive traffic to your blog. Why bother writing something if nobody reads it?
- It increases your Technorati authority and thus ups your visibility.
- Good posts submitted to carnivals attacts regular readers, i.e. people who subscribe to your feed. Contributing to carnivals is therefore an important way to build a reader-base.
