Here here, I’d like to introduce myself , the great sage and mystical magical and intrepid carnival barker preparing you all to step up and take the blog Carnival Challenge to produce the most amazing Plus One Blog articles ever found under the big tent.
With the advent of Plus One Success and all the chatter a about Plus One, I thought it would be fun to gather together all the top acts out there to star in the biggest Plus One Show on Earth. The idea is for each of the stars of the show to present a post about Plus one, there successes, their challenges, there processes for achieving plus one, funny or serious, witty or irrelevant doesn’t matter one Elephant dropping, just get the juices flowing and tell our readers about your experience with Plus One.
What is a Blog Carnival?
A blog carnival is a series of blog posts which focus on a certain theme. The posts are submitted to the Barker who approves them and creates a link to the article at the article owners blog. The Barker hosts the posting page where all the links to the articles are found and encourages all his readers to checkout the posts. The other bloggers post their article and include a link back to the hosting blog to find the list of other articles. This creates an ever-widening circle of traffic as we all promote the Carnival. (That’s how this Barker is doing it at any rate.)
For the blog participants the payback is an up kick in traffic to their blogs and a chance to show off their creations to more people.
But there is even more, my friends, as you would expect from under the canvas of the big tent, where the cheering is deafening and the performers are stellar.
On the Plus One Carnival Page we will be conducting a polling contest. We’ll ask readers to rank the top 3 post they read and when the last elephant leaves the ring, and the dust has settle we will have First, Second, and Third place winners who will received magical mystical and fantasticagorically amazing prizes.
But there is even more, as befits the greatest show on earth.

As under any big tent event, for the greatest show on earth, performers , perform best to thunderous applause. For a blogger than means COMMENTS!
