First, the amount of hours that a host puts into pulling all the posts together, reading them all, deciding how to put them together in a cohesive manner, and then link to each one is a great deal of time.
Second, the reason the carnival is valuable is that not only does it consolidate many great posts in one place, it also helps you easily find a new blogger or two to follow. I have a GoogleReader choc full of great blogs, but it never fails that each time the carnival comes out, I find another blog or two to follow. This time for me it is:
- John Hunter, Curious Cat Management Improvement Blog, wonders, Undercover Boss – Will They Really Change?
- Cathy Missildine-Martin, author of Profitability Through Human Capita asks Is Engagement So Last Year?
So, get over to Lisa’s blog and read it for yourself!
