Hello 2014!

Hello 2014! This year I’d like to try something new–a group blog! We’ve had great success with this approach on Nonfiction Monday.

Add your post to the Carnival of Children’s Literature on this group blog!

  • Write about children’s literature on your blog.
  • Select ONE post written during the current month to share.
  • Use the 24 hour clock to schedule your post to be sent out on the last day of the month.
  • You can sign up to have all of the posts emailed to you!

Q. How can I add my post to the Carnival of Children’s Literature blog?
A. Email Anastasia Suen and ask to be invited to join this blog.

Q. What happens next?
A. I will invite you to be an Author on this free WordPress.com blog. (If you do not have a free WordPress.com account you will need to sign up for one.)

Q. How do I find the Carnival of Children’s Literature blog on my WordPress account?
A. Click on the My Blogs section on your dashboard.

  1. Each month that you want to share a favorite children’s literature post, you can add that post to the Carnival of Children’s Literature blog.
  2. Sign in to your WordPress account.
  3. Copy and paste the post (or an excerpt) from your own blog into this group blog.
  4. Remember to include a book cover so your post can be shared on Pinterest.
  5. Create a User Profile so all of your posts on the blog will have a bio box at the bottom. (The bio is NOT mailed with the post. It will only be visible on the blog.)
  6. Upload a small photo to your profile so your face will appear in the sidebar as one of our bloggers.
  7. Sign your name at the bottom of your post and add a link to bring readers back to your blog.
  8. Use the 24 hour clock to schedule your post to be sent out on the last day of the month.
  9. Check the times on the other posts for that day and allow 10 minutes between posting times to avoid any software glitches.
  10. You can sign up to have all of the posts emailed to you. Enjoy!
