Blog Carnivals!

I'm being increasingly seduced by the beauty of Blog Carnivals, because they remind me of the zines of old. If I can sound extra geeky for just a moment, they also remind me of one of my favorite assignments from my Library Science days. In reference class, we chose a theme (I, of course, chose the Chupacabras) and then created a Pathfinder with materials in the collection that related to the theme. Blog Carnivals are more of a "Greatest Hits" medley than a reference tool. They are essentially web pages along a theme, with links and descriptions of blog entries relevant to the theme. My lovely Mexican Pop Spot has been featured on a couple of them lately, including the Carnival of Cities blog carnival.
