The Infant, Archiearis infans, a daytime flier and one of the first moths of spring
Probably most people who begin to blog view it as a solitary activity, putting one’s thoughts and images to print and publishing it to an online location. Perhaps some folks use it as a way to stay connected with friends or family. Maybe a few have made new friends through visitors leaving comments on their posts. But how many people really see it as a social activity, a way to find others who share your passions and join a community of like-minded individuals?
Blogging can be any of the above, but it is what you make of it. Blog carnivals are a great way to discover new blogs, meet new people, and learn new things about the stuff that interests you. In this case, of course, that stuff is moths! Because we hate to let our favourite lepidopterans remain hidden in the dark, The Moth and Me is a blog carnival for moth enthusiasts, lepidopterists, entomologists, naturalists, and those who just happen to stumble across these fabulous creatures in their yard, to share their observations and experiences. By posting about moths and sharing your link in the blog carnival you’ll have an opportunity to connect with other people who are as interested in these under-rated leps as you are.
If you’re interested in participating, it’s easy! Just send the link to the post you’d like to see included to sanderling [at] symbiotic [dot] ca, on or before March 13. And that’s all there is to it! Then watch for the carnival to be posted here at NAMBI on the 15th, and read through the other participating blogs over a hot cup of coffee. Don’t forget to post a link on your blog to the carnival once it’s up to share the promotion. If you’d like more information on The Moth and Me, check out this page.
