Blog carnivals

Blogs are a great way to see what other people think and talk with each other. However, a single blog only includes what its writers express, so you could miss the chance to read great stuff in other blogs if you simply follow a fixed set of blogs. Blog carnivals overcome this by linking to multiple blog posts in a certain topic, so you can expose yourself to great content in blogs you've never been to before.

I've seen interesting content via blog carnivals, and I've also participated in a few myself:

If you like reading blog posts in certain fields but can't dare to follow every single blog in the world which talks about the subject, then chances are that there is a blog carnival you could be interested in. And if you write something great on your own blog, you might want to consider expanding your readership by submitting the post to a blog carnival.
