Carnival of the arromantics:Friendship


Recommended Posts

Hi, there! The Carnival of Aros is a specific blogging event hosted by the Carnival of Aros. If you'd like to host a theme, please volunteer with Carnival of Aros themselves. Currently, November, December, and beyond are open for volunteers.

Volunteer to Host

The Carnival of Aros relies on volunteer hosts to keep the carnival going. Each host is responsible for developing a theme, writing and posting a call for submissions at the beginning of the month, and then writing a wrap-up post with links to all submissions received at the end of the month.

You can host the carnival calls for submission on any public platform of your choice, whether it’s a blog, tumblr, medium, or something else. If you don’t have a platform of your own but would still like to sponsor a monthly prompt, we’re also happy to host you here!

Update: In addition to monthly hosts, we are also looking volunteer(s) to eventually help with coordination of the carnival overall, including messaging and recruiting hosts and reposting links to calls for submissions and round-ups. If you think you might be interested, or if you have questions, comment below or email carnivalofaros@gmail.com.

Why should I volunteer to be a host?

Hosting the carnival is an act of good will, but can also benefit you. If you have a blog, then hosting a carnival can bring attention and new readers to your blog. You also get to choose the theme (though you do not have to choose a theme until you post the call for submissions).

How do I volunteer to be a host?

Comment on the volunteer to host page, with the month you’d like to host. Alternatively, you may e-mail us at carnivalofaros@gmail.com. Let us know your blog url and your e-mail address. (If you leave a comment, we will assume your e-mail is the one you use for commenting.)

The instructions to hosting are simple. At the beginning of your assigned month, you post a call for submissions (see previous examples here), which should include your chosen theme and some way to contact you.  Shortly after the end of the month, you put up a summary post linking to the submissions (see archives for examples).  Check out this post from our sister carnival for some useful advice.

You can always host chat topics unrelated to the Carnival of Aros, but we do ask if you're going to use the Carnival of Aros tag that you be associated with the actual Carnival event. Thanks!
