How Not To Host A Blog Carnival
First, do not put off making the big post until the last couple of days. Work on the post gradually, as submissions come in. Like a smart, responsible person. (Also, floss every day and balance your checkbook.)
Second, if you have put off making the big post until the last couple of days, don’t ruin the last-minute productivity you usually rely on by coming down with a nasty cold.
Third, if you do get a nasty cold, at least try to have scheduled the big post for a day when you don’t have to show up at your paying job, where there’s a lot of work that can’t be put off.
Fourth, if you do have to go to your job, at least don’t forget that you’ve also promised to spend a couple of hours babysitting on this day, too.
Fifth, if you do have jobs and babysitting cutting into your precious blogging time, at least try not to have your remaining blogging time decimated by an inconsiderately-timed power outage.
Sigh… All of which is to say, the Big Fat Carnival, scheduled to premiere today, will be a day late. My sincere apologies to all.
