Birth Awareness Week Blog Carnival Submissions NEEDED!




Bloggers big and small: join us in promoting awareness about birth in America by participating in the Birth Awareness Week Blog Carnival!

The submission period begins NOW and ends on August 26th at midnight. We will then start the carnival on Monday, August 27th so people have time to get excited about birthing topics and events before the actual birth awareness week. :)

Entering is very simple!
To enter, submit your material on the selected theme at this site: 
http://blogcarnival.com/bc/submit_15729.html by 11:59 p.m. PST on August 26th, 2012.
Please note that posts are moderated. Submissions for marketing or anything that is abusive, inflammatory, offensive, illegal, etc will not be published.


What's the point of a carnival?
Carnivals provide organization about a theme or topic, so that readers can quickly find a collection of posts on a theme. This is important for birth week because readers will be able to learn about local and national evens, gather birth data and get excited about birth week as they read birth stories, watch slideshows and share photos.

Your blog post will be linked to everyone in the carnival, giving you exposure to a like minded audience. You get to meet new people and see a range of great posts on the selected topic. 

Remember... Grab this image and put it on your blog:


You do not have to be big, famous or have a business/organization to participate. If you have a working blog, you can submit material!

You are welcome to submit any form of media/art for this theme. Think about what you have to contribute...a birth video? An unusual, beautiful or educational birth photo? A birth story? Perhaps an article with advice, data or an argument for a certain type of birth? Anything birthy...send it over!

If you have an international, national or local event for birth week, you can post about that  as well!
