Festival of Stocks
About the Festival of Stocks
The Festival of Stocks is a blog carnival dedicated to highlighting bloggers' best articles on stock market related topics. This will include research and commentary on specific stocks, industry analysis, ETFs, REITs, stock derivatives, and other related topics.
If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a blog carnival, Wikipedia defines it as:
"A blog article that contains links to other articles covering a specific topic. Most blog carnivals are hosted by a rotating list of frequent contributors to the carnival, and serve to both generate new posts by contributors and highlight new bloggers posting matter in that subject area."
You can also read the answers to the top five most commonly asked questions about blog carnivals to further understand the underlying concept behind the Festival of Stocks.
Please submit your best recently posted stock market related articles to be included in next week’s Festival of Stocks. Please send the following:
- Title of the post
- URL link to the post
- Trackback link, if you have one
- Your name, the name of your blog
- A quick sentence about the post (optional)
Use this Blog Carnival form to send in you submission. Only one submission per blogger will be accepted each week. Be sure to pick your best post, and only submit that one post for the following week's Festival.
Participants in the Festival of Stocks are expected to post an article announcing the current addition of the Festival of Stocks that their article was included in when a link to that edition is available. Links to the current edition of the Festival of Stocks will be posted here.
Hosting a carnival is a great way to attract new viewers to your site since other Festival of Stocks contributors will be linking to your festival post (hint hint). See the upcoming schedule of Festival of Stocks hosts to find a free week where you would like to volunteer to participate. The only requirements are that you have a blog, have previously contributed links to past Festivals and that you agree to share the word (and this link) in your Festival of Stocks post about how others can submit posts or host future editions.
The Festival of Stocks will be different from other blog carnivals in that I encourage hosts to be selective in the post links they include and to limit the number of posts included (up to the discretion of the host) to about twenty stories in order to cut down on the burden of hosting and to keep the carnivals readable and not overwhelming. I will be introducing a mechanism to help hosts rank submissions and I have creating an optional Excel template to help make the Festival of Stocks post easier to create. Hopefully, these features will make it easy to host and make the Festival of Stocks enjoyable to read.
If you are interested in hosting, please contact me to let me know what week you would like to host.
