Expat Blog Carnival Logo by Roving JayI’m hosting an EXPAT BLOG CARNIVAL to feature all of the really great Expat blog content I encounter each month.

Why host a Carnival?

  • It’s a way to organize blog posts around specific topics, from different people’s perspective and points of view.
  • It’s a perfect way to recognize some of the great writing and stories that are featured on the expat blogs around the world.
  • It provides some extra exposure for your current or historical blog posts, and is a good way to generate some extra social media buzz.

How does the Carnival Work?

  • Each now an then I’ll collect Expat Blog content (either content I’ve found on the web, or has been submitted to me via the form below).
  • I’ll combine this content into a new Carnival post.
  • Each excerpt will include a link back to the author’s blog.

How Frequently is the Carnival Updated?

  • It started out as monthly, but now it’s on an ad hoc basis. But starting next year it’ll get back to monthly.

Am I eligible to submit content?

  • Whether you’re a current expat, a temporary expat, used to be an expat or are planning on becoming an expat – you can submit your Expat-related content for consideration.
  • Posts that include direct links to a sales or content download page are not eligible, likewise, any post that is overly promotional will not be eligible.
  • Blogs must be older than 3 months and have at least 8 posts in the archive.
  • Only one submission per month per blogger or blog will be included in any carnival edition.
  • Guest posts that appear on your blog or guest posts that you have written on another blog are permitted.
