This e-mail from a blogin' friend in Texas. So if your into bugs, you'll be in heaven.
That's right, Bootstrap Analysis, Urban Dragon Hunters and milkriverblog are
banding together to bring you another Carnival devoted to writing and
photography about animals on the web.
This, the Circus of the Spineless, is devoted to all those critters in the
lower reaches of the great evolutionary bush -- those that have no
vertebrae. So we're talking here about insects (especially blog favorites
butterflies, moths, dragonflies and beetles, plus a whole host of other
critters), arachnids, molluscs (yep, blog favorites octopi and squid fit
here), crustaceans, worms, mites, lice, and who knows what else folks find
to blog about. We're just looking for the best writing and the best photos
out there in the blogosphere.
It will appear monthly, and you can submit posts with extensive original
writing and/or original photographic work.
Even if you don't submit, you can help us get the word out to those who read
you by posting a notice on your blog -- it would be much appreciated.
There's an introduction and some rules at the official Spineless site.
Submissions for the first edition are due no later than September 28th, so
start collecting now.
In addition to looking for your submissions and/or getting the word out,
we're looking for some other things you might be able to help with.
First, of course, we'll need some hosts for future carnivals including a
host for October 31st! Then we're looking for December and beyond. If you're
interested flash me an email back.
And we're also looking to make the base site a good reference point for
invertebrate info for those who come stumbling around. I already have a
significant linkload based on my specialties (and on Texas to an extent).
We'd love to have any more links you can pass along to add to that list.
Thanks for your help and participation -- hope to see you soon at the Circus
of the Spineless!
