Community Bulletin Board – March 14, 2010

No new news this week. We’re starting to approach spring festivals and other celebrations of nature. If you know of an event in your area, please send it in so we can share it with other bloggers!

Don’t be shy! If you have contests or promotions, want to share a new project you’re involved in, share a cause you believe in, have items you wish to sell, want to solicit feedback from the NBN community, or anything else that might be of interest to our members, don’t hesitate to email me!

Submissions can be sent to sanderling [at] symbiotic [dot] ca, with the subject line “NBN Bulletin Board”. Don’t forget to include your blog’s name and URL. The weekly board will be posted every Sunday.

Blog Carnivals

GrrlScientist of Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted) has just introduced a fabulous new tool for all of us that love to participate in, and to read, blog carnivals. It’s a Twitter feed that acts to aggregate information on blog carnival deadlines and recent postings at a single site. It’s called SciNatBlogCarnivals, and is dedicated to communicating info on all of your favourite science, nature, environment and medicine blog carnivals. You can read more about the background behind the idea, find out how you can take advantage of the feed to promote your own carnivals, and leave feedback for GrrlScientist on how to make the most of the feed at her post here.

Contests and Promotions

Amber of Birder’s Lounge is continuing her photo ID challenge for 2010 under the name Challenge for Charity. Try your hand at identifying a series of photos; the person with the most correct receives a $10 donation to the charity of their choice.

Every Thursday, Kate of Adventures of a Free Range Urban Primate hosts a Life Photo meme, a chance for nature blogs to link and share images and posts on a variety of different themes celebrating the diversity of life. Submitting your link is quick and easy, and the submission form will always be included in the Thursday post. For examples from previous weeks, click here; for a list of 2010 themes by week, click here.
