Inspired by the Book Review Blog Carnival, which is essentially a round-up of book reviews by different bloggers, the Association of Tea Bloggers is sponsoring a series of monthly blog carnivals about tea. Each carnival will have a theme and a host, and the blog carnivals will be listed and linked on this page.

Rules and Procedures:

  • Participants will write a blog post using the theme of the upcoming carnival and schedule it to publish on the assigned blog carnival date. (Previously published blog posts are eligible for submission, but the participating blogger must post something about the blog carnival on the scheduled blog carnival date.)
  • Participating blog entries must link to the blog carnival on the host blog.
  • Submissions should be emailed to the host at least week before the scheduled publication of the blog carnival. (In the case of previously published blog posts, a link should be sent instead.) Include the URL for the published post.
  • Participation is open to bloggers who are not members of the ATB, but all contributions must acknowledge the ATB as sponsor. Hosts of blog carnivals must be ATB members.
  • The host blogger will compile and evaluate the entries and write a blog post for the carnival that will include brief descriptions and links to each of the participating bloggers' posts.
  • The host blogger should also write a blog post contribution using the carnival's theme.
  • The host blog carnival must state that the blog carnival is sponsored by the ATB and link back to this post.
