I and the Bird #100

on 8th May 2009

“I and the Bird” is a blog carnival that celebrates the interaction between birders and the diversity of wild birds that we encounter in our daily lives. Every fortnight for the last four years, a blogger had been hosting the carnival in his of her weblog that attracted participation by the best bird writers from the web.

I and the Bird will be having its milestone post on 14th May 2009 when its 100th edition will be hosted by Nature Blog Network. This network “is the nexus for the nature blog community, the portal through which readers and publishers alike can locate the very best nature blogs on the net.” There are over 870 member blogs on all aspects of nature, of which over 280 are bird blogs. And these blogs are ranked according to their popularity.

BESG has been participating in the carnival for some time now. We actually hosted the #89 carnival on 26th November 2008 – bringing the carnival for the first time to Asia.

We would like to see more of an Asian presence in this 100th edition and urge Asian bird bloggers, especially those from Southeast Asia, to participate. Make a post in your blog on any aspect of birdwatching and send the link and a summary to either [email protected] or [email protected] by 12th May for the historic posting on 14th May by Nature Blog Network.

This is one way of popularising your weblog.
