Welcome to the Georgia Blog Carnival…
This is the edition that I could title the “Newbie Edition” as many of the blogs linked to are new to the Georgia blogroll. Instead of highlighting them in a “new additions” post I’ve elected to highlight them within the carnival along with two or three regular submissions from the past month.
Once again this month the Georgia Carnival has been swamped with submissions from non-Georgia blogs and blogs that do not fit the Georgia Carnival theme even though submission guidelines are clearly stated.
Not wanting to leave out a bonafide Georgia blog or a post that fits the criteria I checked each submission…..it took awhile.
Ok, on to better things…The bloggers featured here are all part of the extensive list of bloggers from Georgia I have listed in the right sidebar of this site. Any Georgia blogger can submit a post to the carnival, or a blogger from another state or country can submit a post for inclusion if the topic is Georgia related.The next carnival will be published here at Georgia on My Mind on Friday, July 1oth . Submissions will be due Thursday, July 9th.
If you maintain a Georgia blog and would like to host the carnival at your site e-mail me to set up a date. It’s a great way to put your own personal spin on the carnival.The last edition of carnival can be found here and the carnival archives are found here.
Now on to the carnival:
Amy at the Q Family Adventures, a longtime submitter here at the Georgia Carnival shares Outdoor Adventures Around Atlanta and advises, “Take the kids out for great outdoor adventure this summer around Atlanta.”
ATLHistory.com is a blog that I’m very excited about as it mainly covers Atlanta history. A recent post…seen here…discusses books regarding Atlanta history that can be located and read online.
D-Day was June 6, and I remembered it over at History Is Elementary with several links in my post titled Remembering D-Day.
Live Apartment Fire’s tagline states, “Watching Atlanta’s news through somewhat averted eyes”. The “about” section states the purpose of the blog is to cover the news business in metro Atlanta (TV, radio, print). See more about the backstory of this interesting blog here. Recent postings include TV News Stinks and Duck and Cover Up concerning the attempts of one Atlanta reporter to interview members of the Fulton County School Board regarding excessive spending.
A Voice for Freedom is written by Zack Smith, a graduate of Kennesaw State University. In his most recent post, Seward's Folly Finally Realized With Sarah Palin, Zach makes a great point regarding how current events have long fingers that stretch back through history. He states in his post….”While the governor castigated big government bailouts for companies and people who were “imprudent” with their money, she failed to realize the man she praised bailed out a Russian empire in dire financial straits.” History does have a knack for irony, Zach!
PrimoroBlog specializes in medical practice management consulting topics. Recent postings include Patient Satisfaction and Internet Marketing. The main page for Primoro, Inc. can be found here.
Beautiful Fences is a blog all about beautiful fences. What else would it be? The blog has an extensive site index so you can find just about any topic regarding fences you might need. Micah has several other links to his fence sites listed on his profile here. Recent postings include a discussion regarding stone columns and another discussion regarding lattice fences.
The author of American History Blog is based in Atlanta. This site has a full site index to help you wander around the site, and new posts are added weekly on various topics. A recent posting discussed Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy. One of Jefferson Davis’ Georgia connections is the Union finally captured him right here in Georgia.
Straight from St. Simons Island comes Savings With Sadie. This page is full of alerts, coupon information, and just plain deals, deals, and deals. Here's a post discussing how you can get a free issue of Marlin magazine and Sadie’s most recent post asks Are you camera ready?
