What is a Blog Carnival?

So I’ve been looking around the internet for different things that increase blog traffic. During the search, I found different articles that mentioned blog carnivals. Since I’m fairly new to blogging, I really did not know what it was. I know that it sounds fun. Who doesn’t want to go to a carnival – even if it’s just for a caramel apple?
A blog carnival is sort of like a magazine about a specific topic, like homeschooling or photography. The organizer of each blog carnival searches the internet for blogs about the topic. They also accept contributions to the carnival. For example, if you have a blog post about making your own laundry detergent, you could find a carnival about do-it-yourself projects or something related to the home.
A blogger can also start their own carnival category if they choose. It seems like there might not be much variety in the carnival categories. Of course, I could be wrong. I haven’s seen every carnival . . . yet.
It’s another way to get publicity for your blog. However, it might not be for everyone but it could be worth looking into.
