So, it is the middle of July and I have two, count them, two submissions for Blog Carnival Five.

That is two people out of almost 2,000 20Somethings. C’mon guys! You guys wanted this theme and Lisa gave it to ya! And it wouldn’t hurt making me look like a good editor if I get more than a few submissions, right?!

So, what is the theme? If you didn’t already know, I’ll let them tell you.

The theme is Summertime. Pretty broad right? 

Let’s review, yet again, how to submit to the Blog Carnival:

Email me at tipptalk@gmail.com:

1. The URL to the Summertime themed post you wish to submit
2. The URL to your 20Something Bloggers Ning page.

We will choose the most well-written posts to showcase on the 20sb Blog for the entire month. If chosen you will get great readership to your blog, exposure in the whole 20something community, and the membership rights into the secret club which is past Blog Carnival winners.

We are working on a secret handshake and everything! You know you wanna join us, don’t you?

If you are not a 20sb and you want to be and you are a twenty-something with a blog, email me and I will invite you to join us!

Deadline for submissions is August 5th at midnight.

Also, I am in the process of updating my blogroll. If you want to be added just drop me a comment and I would love to add you. I also just added a Real Life Friends category so you can read all the people I am around in my three dimensional life. They are all really cool people and great bloggers!

Blog Carnival Four: Good Causes

Hey 20 Something Bloggers!

It’s that time again! Are you ready to bring attention to a cause you are passionate about? Do you volunteer? Do you give? Do you see a need in the world and think, “what a great cause?!” Do you know of a non-profit that needs to be heard about amongst our 20something community?

Tell us about it!

Get the word out about all the good efforts out there that seek to improve our world!

If you are new to the 20sb Blogger community and don’t know about a carnival that is OK!
It is a collection of posts on a specific topic that are submitted to an editor (that’s me) for review and selection. We will feature the best and most well-written posts on the 20sb Blog in a magazine type format.

1. Write a post on the chosen topic
2. Email me at tipptalk@gmail.com with the URL link to your post and the URL link to your 20sb Member Profile Page (you must be a 20sb member to submit)
3. Await the results at the end of the month!

We want your posts! Get to it!

Blog Carnival Info Continued

Our fearless leader Lisa came up with some great examples of post ideas for the theme “Tests.” She must have been getting as many inquiries as I have. Not to worry, we are both self-admittedly “question-lovers”!

We are just stoked you guys are so interested!

Here are just a few examples. Remember guys, think outside the box, be creative, and have fun! Or don’t have fun if it is a serious post, oh, you know what I mean!

Test ideas!
– pushing your limitations (testing yourself!)
– drivers’ licenses
– feeling tested in your convictions
– testing new waters
– testing a friend
– quiz shows
– you name it!

I loved Danielle’s idea of pregnancy/ovulation tests, this could also include medical tests of any kind.

Such good thinkers you all are!
