It’s up at Aardvarchaeology!
The next one will be on 1 March at History is Elementary.
And an announcement:
At present there is one host definitely booked for 1 April, and I’ll probably do the 50th edition on 15 March.
It’s becoming increasingly rare for people to volunteer off their own bat to host the carnival despite regular requests. Most recent hosts are people who I’ve asked to do it. And when carnivals are posted, it’s nearly all the same small group of people linking to them (I keep track of these things).
History blogging is growing rapidly, and there are always great things in the History Carnival editions. There are new specialist history carnivals springing up all the time. But – or perhaps because of all that – the History Carnival doesn’t seem to be arousing as much interest as it used to. I’m suffering a touch of carnival fatigue lately, and I don’t think I’m alone.
So, as of 1 April, the History Carnival will be published only once a month. This will make it easier to get enough hosts and, equally important, will perhaps help to make each edition more of an event rather than a routine.
And if you would like to volunteer to host from 1 May onwards, I’d love to hear from you.
