The boring day carnival deadline is today, and like the good carnival owner that I am, I put off taking my own pictures til today. HA! Last night I remembered, so I put my camera right on my nightstand and stuck my glasses next to them so that I’d see the camera and start snapping shots first thing in the morning. I haven’t taken many pictures yet today. I’m not even sure how many submissions I had for this round…
And speaking of carnival submissions, what’s up with all of the random people who just submit any old blog entry to a themed carnival? When I hosted the postie carnival I got 2 or 3 from people who obviously didn’t read the instructions, and I was a meanie and didn’t include their link. And hey – if you can’t follow the instructions, why should I? Other hosts have been nicer, and included those people, but still pointed out that they didn’t follow the rules…and it’s mostly the same offenders time and time again.
Now, this carnival is a photo theme – you submit a blog entry with pictures embedded. It says so right in the sign up form. Yet both times I’ve done it, I’ve gotten completely random entries submitted. Are people carnival whores? Do they just submit random posts in hopes that people will link them anyway? I emailed a few people to point out their submission didn’t fit the rules, and got no response, so I think they’re carnival whores.
