Third Sunday Blog Carnival: May 2013

Third Sunday Blog CarnivalWelcome to the Third Sunday Blog Carnival!

This month’s blog carnival is brought to you by 17 bloggers: 6 in the Poetry category, 3 in the Fiction category, and 8 in the Writing Life category.

I love it when bloggers tell me that they have formed bonds with fellow blog carnival contributors or that they have found a new favorite writer here. That is what this is all about! So keep supporting each other’s creativity by leaving comments for the authors at their blogs.  Other ways to help are to follow their blogs, Google+ their posts, and share their links on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and other social networking sites.  If you know of someone who would enjoy the blog carnival either as a reader or a contributor, please pass this post along.

The next edition of the Blog Carnival will be on June 16. If you want your link to be included, read and follow the guidelines and email your submission by June 10.

Ok, on to the Carnival. Enjoy!
