Would A Host For Issue #2 Please Stand Up

Saturday, July 28, 2007

The first PoC in SF Blog Carnival received an amazing amount of feedback. I was awed and grateful.

But now here I am at the end of the month, and I haven't found another host.

The person I thought was lined up to be the second host, hasn't responded to me and I'm not sure they even saw the Carnival was out. Two other people have offered, but I haven't heard back from them either. And the third person to offer is entangled in another project and signed up clearly asking for issue#3 or 4.

Where will I find a host for issue#2?

How hard do I have to ask?

Were people really excited?

Hosting involves looking for links, and receiving links sent to the carnival organizer site. It involves writing commentary for said links.

There is so much I've seen recently that bears mentioning. Things in HP fandom, in Dr. Who, in gaming... There are lists being made of PoC creators, interviews and articles.

We need this Carnival.

And I need help to keep it going.

PS: There's been some flutter from people who aren't of colour wondering if it's appropriate for them to host. The Carnival needs to stay alive. If the topics are of concern and interest to you and you're willing to devote time to put an issue out - then I don't see a problem.

    What are the qualifications for hosting? My website has been around for a long time, but my BLOG is brand new, so... I don't know if it would suit your needs. I'd be happy to do some of the legwork and host the PoC Carnival, though, if no one more suitable volunteers.

    Unfortunately I can't take #2, because I currently have two-and-a-bit-weeks to move interstate for a new job, but I'd definitely be interested in hosting a future Carnival. Sorry I can't be of more help for this one. :\

    I was pretty excited by the first issue, but I assumed that you'd already have a host. I can do it if no-one responds to you.

    hey!

    I was probably one of the ones to volunteer when you asked for a host but disappeared into the woodwork.

    I'm willing to lend a hand etc. I'll need a lot of handholding but if you've got a pack of links and some opinions, I can pull it together etc.

    If you need me, contact me at sbarret_fic at yahoo dot com

    Shewhohashope:
    You didn't leave a way for me to get in touch with you. Is that you on livejournal btw?

    I currently have a host for August and one for September. Were you offering to host in general, or offering to be a standby?

Leave your response
