    I’ve heard of and was told they are a very good way to give your blog exposure and links but have never implemented. After reading your post I will give it a try and see what happens.

    Egon, you are right. Apart from the fact that some carnivals could generate a good amount of traffic even for established blogs, even now I still keep an eye on the listing to see if there is any interesting one.

    Agreed. Blog Carnivals are one of the best things a new blog can do to get their name out there.
