A problem with one carnival…

September 7, 2007 am30 7:14 am

I have two. The Carnival of Education keeps messing with me. This week Educationwonk put up my post, but didn’t link it (fixed). Last week Mathew Taber put up my post, linked it, but got confused between multiplying an factoring. Not long before, Ed in Tex lost my submission, second time that happened with that host.

Second, you get carnivaled next to, um, people and ideas I am not necessarily very happy with. I just read on the current host’s site links to vile anti-union stuff. And he’s not the only one.

From here on, with the Carnival of Education, I will be more careful what I submit, and to which host.

Carnival of Mathematics? Of course! Math is good. And Whatsit’s Potluck. That’s the best.

The image is from an article about summer food poisoning. But that’s not the point I am making!

    I’m glad you like my Potluck!

    I totally understand what you are saying about the Carnival of Education. Sometimes the political bias of the host comes out loud and clear. I’ve noticed in the past a few leads to the links were misleading about the content of the submission. I think it’s better than it used to be, but like you point out, some hosts aren’t as conscientious about trying to convey a neutral voice as others.

    So what will you do? Submit sometimes? Leave them alone?

    I’ve submitted a few times. I don’t know. Three, maybe four times. I think there was only one time when I was not included when I submitted. There were a couple of times when posts from my other blog were included in the carnival even though I never submitted them. I guess people are more interested in our darkness than our light. But that’s a theory.
