Carnival Of The Godless - Will The 104th Edition Be The Last Edition?
Back in early January of 2005 I created the Carnival Of The Godless, then hosted the 1st Edition later that same month on January 30th.
For close to four years now it has been a dynamic and vital blog carnival. It has pulled in excellent examples of godless writing from all parts of the planet. I also like to think that it was instrumental in ushering in a global and almost organic organization of godless blogs, websites, commentators, authors, and social networks.
But it's all about to end.
I have never had any trouble rounding up hosts until the last year or so. Which is ironic given the explosion in atheist and godless-themed blogs recently.
However, I have exactly ONE more COTG in the pipe for this weekend, November 9, 2008, and then - nothing. No one has volunteered to host after that.
So, there are two things that I would like to ask the godless community:
1. Do you want the COTG to continue? If so, I need hosts. Lots of hosts. If you'd like to host a future COTG, please send your host requests to me at brent dot rasmussen at gmail dot com.
2. Is anyone interested in taking over the reigns of the COTG? It's not a lot of work, but I've been doing it for four years now, and I've had just about enough. I'll keep doing it until someone steps forward and agrees to take on the responsibility. Please don't agree to do it as a lark. If you'd like to take over, send me an email (see my gmail address above) and lets talk about it a bit. Ideally I'd like for the person to be an established godless blogger who would take it seriously and work hard at advertising/cajoling. :)
So, there you go. The COTG is in your hands.
