Windows on Wildlife
What’s a Blog Carnival?
The Blog Carnival Website defines blog carnivals as such ( http://blogcarnival.com/bc/faq.html):
A Blog Carnival is a particular kind of blog community. There are many kinds of blogs, and they contain articles on many kinds of topics. Blog Carnivals typically collect together links pointing to blog articles on a particular topic. A Blog Carnival is like a magazine. It has a title, a topic, editors, contributors, and an audience. Editions of the carnival typically come out on a regular basis (e.g. every Monday or on the first of the month). Each edition is a special blog article that consists of links to all the contributions that have been submitted, often with the editors opinions or remarks.
There are remarkably few nature-focused blog carnivals and memes out there (relative to the whole), and of the ones that do exist, I’ve yet to find one that focuses on ALL kinds of wildlife. There are carnivals and memes for insects, birds, trees and nature photography, and a few general ones. But I have a soft spot for mammals, and many of my posts about wildlife focus as much on mammals as they do on birds or insects.
Since I’ve been unable to find what I’m looking for, I’ve decided to create it! Do you write about, photograph or otherwise record your interactions with wildlife? If so, I hope you’ll join me! On Tuesdays, I will post exclusively about wildlife of all kinds, and offer a link-up if you’d like to share your own ‘Window on Wildlife’ for that week. It doesn’t have to be about mammals – birds, insects, fish or any other type of critter are more than welcomed. The link-up will start each Tuesday, and go through 11 PM (EST) on Wednesday. Your article will be featured in the following week’s edition of Windows on Wildlife.
