A Call to Arms for Decent Bloggers: What Carnies Want to Tell the A-Listers

A Call to Arms for Decent Bloggers: What Carnies Want to Tell the A-Listers

Love ’em or hate ’em, the topic of A-Listers will not go quietly into the night.

For the first time in carnie history we had people submitting nearly two weeks in advance. The sideshow is taking over center stage, and it’s going to be better than the bearded lady, fortune teller and strong man all rolled into one.

Over the past few months the carnies have noticed that the big tent of blogging has not practiced what they preach. The main acts aren’t always delivering as advertised, A-Listers giving advice they clearly don’t follow themselves.

This month’s carnival will give the fire breather a run for his money! Read all 10, and weigh in with your thoughts, opinions, rants, pet peeves and solutions.
