Now, don’t get me wrong. I did get just a bit more traffic, I’m thankful for that and the general tough work that was undertaken by Scamp. This also doesn’t have to do with any sorts of ‘lower’ feelings due to me losing against Inushinde. He is a great guy and a clever blogger. Yet, I don’t believe I’m necessarily a less good of a blogger because I lost. He writes mainly reviews/episodics, I write mainly editorials- there was almost no common ground to be judged upon.
Wait, hang with me just a bit longer. I’m getting where I must. No, the Carnival I’m suggesting isn’t about the Tourney. It isn’t about any new contest either. I understood after discussing with a few other bloggers that not only it wouldn’t be possible to organize such a contest on my own, but finding criteria with which all the bloggers would be judged is very very hard. Even if we came in a consensus, a contest of virtues would harm the pride of those not nominated an award/title. So that’s what I came up with after long thoughts:
Let’s get to know what we want. For us. A general friendly feedback.
Why not get to reflect on what we like to read and for what reasons? (reviews, commentaries, editorials)
What do we do when we stumble across a new blog?
What must a good animanga blog have and do?
What blogging behaviors annoy us (anonymously of course)?
A month would be too long and the input would go stale. A week is too short because it’s summer, people go and have fun, are on vacations, perhaps have more work… So what about holding this carnival for 2 weeks? Readers that don’t have blogs may comment on the section below. After the carnival ends, I’ll try summing up our ideas into a single post that could as well be a guide for first time bloggers of the animangasphere.
Please, in order to collect all of your contributions here, do tweet me over Foxy Lady Ayame.
ATTENTION: Please, don’t get out of topic while writing on this blog carnival. Also, I considered it a matter-of-fact that participants will behave in a civil manner without picking on other bloggers. Unless you have the consent of the other blogger, don’t express opinions that might be offensive.
