Natural parenting blog carnivals

Are you a blogger who hosts a one-time or regular blog carnival?

Or are you a writer who wants more opportunities to write in community?

Here is a current roundup of blogging carnivals relevant to natural parents.

Amy of Anktangle and I are hosting this collaborative calendar to keep track of all the wonderful community writing opportunities around the blogosphere.

The calendar will track submission deadlines and publish dates for blog carnivals with topics related to natural parenting, including: food and recipes, mindfulness, pregnancy & birth, breastfeeding/feeding options, gentle discipline, do-it-yourself projects, environmentally conscious living practices, and more!

This resource is here for you to visit and check for upcoming topics or to help promote a carnival you're hosting to get more participants.

If you have a Google account, you can subscribe to the carnival calendar by clicking the "plus" icon at the bottom, and even get email reminders when deadlines are approaching by going to Notifications in the calendar settings!

Please browse the calendar and feel free to add any carnivals you come across that other bloggers would love to hear about (whether you host the carnival yourself or not). Look below the calendar for details on submitting carnival links.

Enjoy the carnivals!

This linky list is now closed.

Here's a suggested formatting for entering the carnival information:

Hosting blog(s) - carnival name - carnival theme (due date for submissions; live date(s) for the carnival)

You can leave out any element that is irrelevant to your carnival.

Hobo Mama & Code Name: Mama - Carnival of Natural Parenting - Parenting Philosophy (due July 5; live July 12)

Be sure to enter a link relevant to the carnival — the current submissions page ( or a static page for the carnival (, not your home page. People interested in your carnival want to be able to find the necessary information quickly.

I will manually approve each addition to make sure carnivals are relevant and that general submission rules (see above) are followed. There will be a delay between entering your information and seeing it in the carnival linky. I don't have time to email everyone about my reasons for approving an entry or not, but if you want me to be able to contact you about your submission, be sure to enter a valid email address in the linky (optional).

I will remove carnivals as their live dates have passed, so be sure to add the new dates and theme for each upcoming carnival session. -->

If you would like your carnival button added to the badge roundup below, email me the html code. And then wait patiently till I have a moment to add it!
