If you receive my blog posts by email or read them in a feed reader, then you are unable to view the pictures and links that make up Gluten-Free Wednesdays. In order to view them, you have to click over to my actual web site.
I know, it’s an extra step, but if you don’t you are missing out on a lot of great gluten-free recipes. Here is a sample of the recipes that were linked up yesterday.
The pictures and titles allow you to browse through them all and click on the ones that interest you. Most weeks there are over 40 entries.
What is a Blog Carnival?
Gluten-Free Wednesdays is a blog carnival, sometimes called a meme. A blog carnival has a host (for this one it’s me). The carnival has a topic such as recipes or frugal ideas. The theme of this carnival is gluten-free eating ideas.
Bloggers participate in the carnival by writing a blog post that fits the topic, adding a link to the host, and submitting their post to the carnival. Some carnivals take submissions by email and then the host publishes a post with all the links. Many carnivals are done using a form that allows people to enter their link and often a picture.
Gluten-Free Wednesdays is open each week from Tuesday night (about 10 p.m. eastern time) until midnight Thursday night. After that, links can no longer be added, but they can still be viewed.
Give it a Try
If you don’t usually visit my site for this carnival, why don’t you give it a try this week (that’s the link to take you directly there). Once you get there, scroll down past the writing which you may have already read and browse the pictures.
When you want to view a link, just click on the picture. A new tab will open in your browser and you will be taken to the site of the person who posted the link. The links are supposed to go straight to that particular recipe so you don’t have to look around their blog to find it.
Blog carnivals are fun for bloggers to participate in, but they are also a great resource for blog readers. I hate for you to miss out!
