Family Travel hosts the Carnival of Cities

                                Carnival of Cities logo

Many of you know that I work with Home Turf Media on its Carnival of Cities, a blog carnival with posts that each feature some aspect of a specific city.

A blog carnival is just a roundup of different writer’s posts about a particular topic, hosted on one blog.

For the first time, the Family Travel blog is going to play host to the Carnival of Cities, and I’m really looking forward to serving up the urban literary tidbits (drinks and nachos will be right over, as Successful Blog’s Liz Strauss says in her Friday SOB Business Cafe.)

To participate, use the blog carnival submission form to submit ONE post that relates to a particular city. Any angle is fine as long as it is related to a specific city (or fair-sized town.) Comment on a local politician’s latest blunders, share a favorite restaurant review or present the city from a tourist’s point of view.

To see how it’s done, take a look at this week’s Carnival, the Hot August Night edition.

Normally this carnival posts on Mondays, but because Monday, September 3, 2007 is the US Labor Day holiday, we’ll post on Tuesday, September 4, 2007 instead.

Deadline to submit, however, is the usual:  2 pm Eastern on Sunday (Sept 2, 2007.)

Thanks also to another carnival this week:  Sandier Pastures (based in Dubai) featured my Perceptive Travel blog post, Traveling parent faces hotel reality check in the Carnival of Family Life.
