Where Is the Mom Blog Carnival?

After writing about all of the Blog Carnivals out there, I belatedly realized there are no Mom Blog Carnivals circulating. Why not?

I got started blogging for Mothers & More for their Mothers' Day 2005 campaign: "The Real Story - It's About Time", which was such an exhiliarating experience that I latched onto Blogger and kept going. This also got me hooked on reading a few other parenting blogs, and interested in the whole "mommy blogger" phenomenon. Hey, the NY Times did a story about this (their articles aren't free online anymore, but if you're a subscriber or you can get it via your library's website, it's called Mommy (And Me), by David Hochman, and was published January 30, 2005.

I'm wondering just how much work it would be to put together one of these travelling shows. Blogging was so easy...there's some truly amazing writing out there hidden in the insipid "mommy blog" pigeonhole, and I would love to showcase some of it. Hmmm.

Do it. Though, Karnival Of Kidz is similar, i.e., parents writing about their children,parenting, etc.

Funny, after finishing the feminist Carnival I was thinking about how a mothers carnival would be a good thing to do. But it couldn't be called Moms Carnival - far too American I'm afraid! I might just start one up, like Natalie started the Feminist one.
