Looking for someone to help with The Accretionary Wedge
Actually … I’m looking for a geoblogger colleague to take over the administration of the archive site for The Accretionary Wedge geoscience blog carnival (ideally, someone who has hosted/participated in the past and is actively blogging). As I mentioned in a previous post, my time devoted to blogging has diminished, and will continue to do so … but I certainly don’t want to see the carnival shrivel up and die.
What does being the ‘admin’ of the archive site mean?
- Maintain the ‘who’s hosting the next…’ page
- When a new installment goes live, provide a link to the host blog
- After a few weeks to a month, copy/paste the carnival post from the host blog into the archive site (allowing time for the blogger hosting to get the traffic, which is nice exposure for doing the work of hosting)
- The archive site gets very few comments, but there is a little bit of moderating of spamming/trolling
In addition to these specific blog maintenance tasks, there is just general promotion of the carnival (e.g., posting reminders about upcoming carnivals on your own blog, coercing nicely asking other bloggers to host, and so on).
The Accretionary Wedge is a community-created entity and should stay that way — it would be fun to pass this part of it on to another blogger.
