Hosting a carnival is a great way of promoting your blog and getting involved with the online personal finance community. Never hosted a carnival before? Not to worry. We will send you all the information you need and happily answer any questions that you have about hosting.
We’re still on the lookout for TotallyMoney Blog Carnival hosts for 2012! If you meet the qualifications below and you’d like to host, please register your details here.
Benefits of hosting:
Links – All included blogs are required to link back to you, you will be linked to multiple times here at Totally Money.
Traffic – When sites are included, the bloggers usually visit to say thanks. Then, when they link back, some of their readers visit too.
The hosting qualifications will be:
You’ll need to consistently post on your site.
Your site must be at least 2 months old.
Each blog can host the TotallyMoney Blog Carnival up to two times per year. If you own more than one personal finance blog, then you can host up to two carnivals for each blog you own.
A host must have the time to consider all posts submitted by Sunday at 6pm GMT.
Please make sure the carnival goes live on the scheduled Monday.
Hosts will need to have time to weed out the posts that don’t fit the carnival’s requirements, such as spam, multiple submissions, ads, etc.
Please make sure that you email all of the selected participants when the Carnival goes live with a link to the post.
Please include a link to the TotallyMoney Blog Carnival in your article.
Hosts will need to include an ‘Editor’s Choice’ section of 3-5 posts.
Try to have fun with it – fun themes get way more visits than straight-up link lists!
Thanks so much for considering to host TotallyMoney! If you are interested, please sign up today!
