Welcome to the Grand-Daddy of pet blogging share-fests on the internet!
The Carnival has been shared, through good times and bad, every week since the Spring of 2004.
It's time for a change....
Long past time; Nikita knew it, at least 5 years before he went to Rainbow Bridge, Daddy Kiril has long known it, Miss Mog has long known it, and so have I.
Except for a few old timers and the occasional newbie, submissions had stopped coming in long ago. In case you might not have noticed we have long had many of the same contributors because we continued to share posts we liked by long time regulars and new sites we added.
That's no way to run a once great share-fest!
Call us old-fashioned, but we are not real fans of Mr. Linky and other such new-fangled ways of sharing posts, though we long have often submitted to the Cat Blogosphere and various Blog Hops, welcoming the few visitors who come by and checking out blog posts by other fellow submitters.
Most of those don't allow the submitter to impress upon the host and visitors just what it was about their submission that made them want to share it not just on their blog, but with a, hopefully, wider audience via the CoTC, allowing for the host to embellish a little in how they explained the post once they had also read it themselves.
Also, how many cat bloggers who have joined our ranks, in the past 5 years, even are aware of the CoTC and its history and importance for the pet blogging niche of the internet?
