You Are Invited To The Blogosphere's Only Progressive Dinner Carnival

Have you ever been to a progressive dinner? You start out at one house or restaurant to have hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, then move on to a different one for appetizers, and continue moving from place to place all the way through dessert.

That's the idea behind the new Progressive Dinner Blog Carnival...

Soup To Nuts is ONE BLOG CARNIVAL presented in five "courses", each with a different host.

Entries are being accepted NOW.
Dinner will be served on Wednesday, January 30th

{You can submit one post, per blog, on any subject - please do not use any post more than once}

You can participate in 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 courses

The Hors d'oeuvres & Cocktails course...
will be served here, at Fear and Loathing - The Gonzo Papers.
Email your entry for the hors d'oeuvres & cocktails course

Your entry should include...

---(-)-> Your name as you want it to appear
---(-)-> The name(s) of your blog(s)
---(-)-> The corresponding URL(s)
---(-)-> The title of your post(s)
---(-)-> The corresponding URL(s)

The Rules are simple...

1. Only English language posts will be accepted.
2. No posts with titles that include profanity or pictures of a sexual nature.

This is a one-of-a-kind blog carnival. The hosts would appreciate your help to promote the event. Let us know if you publish a post promoting the progressive dinner, your effort will be recognized. To make things as easy as possible for all involved, I ask the post more or less follow the structure of this one.

Ah, now I see what you're talking about. I've never participated in a blog carnival and would kinda like to sit this one out and learn the ropes first. Can't wait to see how it develops :)

Hey Kilroy... dugg it... lets hope it turns out something good... I am in...

But I was just thinking, is it necessary for us to submit new content or old content will also do...

ANY post is eligible for long as there is no profanity in the title or photographs of a sexual nature included.

You don't have to write a post specifically for the carnival, although we would not object to that. It doesn't matter when you wrote the post.

I encourage participants to submit posts to more than one course of the dinner. Of course, I'd like to see everyone do all five courses.

Our hope is that visitors will go from one host blog to another and visit all five portions of the carnival. The more entries you have the more chance you'll have of being seen and benefiting from the carnival.

We can't do everything possible between the five of us to make this carnival as successful as possible. We need people to publish posts making people aware of it. If you run a post pointing to SOUP TO NUTS please email me - link in profile - or write a comment here including the URL.
