Okay, no I didn't just tell you to run off and join the circus. I stopped considering that as an occupation back about fouth grade, although I do like all the animals. However, amongst all the options for promoting your blog, a very good way to get extra traffic through your site is to join in on a 'blog carnival' when you find one happening.
Jessie at Hunna's Happenings is going to be holding a postie blog carnival on January 1st. She got massive traffic through her site the last time she held a carnival (about 400 extra hits that day alone) and it benefited not only her, but all the link entries on it. Movement is the key on marketing blogs.
To join Jessie's Blog Carnival here's what you have to do:
Email Jessie here with the link to your blog, and the link to your favorite post.
Submissions must be entered no later than 11:59 p.m. on December 27th.
Place a post on your blog directing other Posties to enter the carnival and then another post the day of the carnival directing readers to check the carnival out.
So see: it's easy. Get in on the fun, and get your traffic moving along. Join the carnival today.
