Let's Bring Back The Poetry Carnival!

Note: This post and the next will remain at the top, new posts can be found below the second post.

The poetry carnival has bounced around the Blogosphere for several years now, stopping and starting in spits and sputters but never really making a complete lap without a breakdown so I thought, Billy, why don't you do something about it? You know how to fix things, you've got more tools than most poets and you know what it needs.

So I pondered the situation a bit and decided the first thing the carnival needed was someone to be committed. Dude, you could be committed at any moment if a shrink somewhere happens to read your poetry!

Next, a carnival needs a home base, a place to repair equipment and organize events. Billy, you know how to build stuff. "Oh S%^$# my &**^%!" Sorry about the outburst, I hit the wrong nail. Careful Dude, you've got no insurance.

Finally, a carnival needs a name, something more than just Poetry Carnival, you know? Something with a classic, yet textured feel, something... Hey, I got an idea!

And so, with that, my crazy alter ego and I bring you the Ringing Of The Bards, a weekly poetry carnival bigger and better than all the carnivals before it, with a listing of every one who hosts the carnival, links to their sites and info on where the poetry carnival will be held each week. I'll also be using Poets101.com, BloggingPoet.com and The Idle Hands Newsletter to promote The Ringing Of The Bards making this the biggest and bestess carnival ever.

And did I mention the Ringing Of The Bards is to be a weekly event. See the list below to see who's next.
