For Cat Bloggers, the world over, the Carnival was once an important way to discover blogs they might never have heard of, on subjects of all kinds!
It was an opportunity for them to reach an audience they might not otherwise reach.
It was a chance to promote a post or 2, each week, that they thought would be of interest to others, and to pitch them using more than 140 characters or just a short sentence barely long enough to get a point across.
My, how times have changed....
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google +, LinkedIn, Mr. Linky, InLinkz, online communities and more, have allowed for more platforms to share ones pet blogging, some more popular than others.
On Sept. 13th, or a few days after, this blog will host the 600th weekly edition of the Carnival, uninterrupted, since Spring 2004.
That's 8 weeks away from now.
For now, let's get to THIS edition!
