Bloggers’ Diary

bloggers’ diary

I thought it might be a good idea to have a page where everyone can add their link to any carnivals, Linkies, competitions or other events on their blogs they are hosting or that know of. That way we can all [or maybe just me :) ] keep up with what’s going on in blog land.

So, if you are hosting a Carnival, Linky, meme, competition, twitter or conference type event or have a blog that uses premium CommentLuv to offer backlinks, or you know someone else who is, please add the link to the Linky:

- choose either the:
i) carnival lists – for carnivals that offer backlinks (inlinks)to people taking part
ii) weekly event list for Linkies and memes
iii) one-off event list for linkies, memes, competitions etc
iv) Twitter parties list or
v) conferences, meetups, tweetups and parties list (this list is UK-centric at the moment but you can anything anywhere in the world that might be of interest to bloggers)

- link to the post or blog category please, not your homepage, so people can find it quickly
- if it’s a one-off event, add the deadline date at the start of the Linky title so it can be seen at a glance, eg  ‘by 11th January (midnight) Carnival at BlogBaboon’.



i) Bloggers’ Diary – Carnivals that offer backlinks (inlinks) to people participating:
