Email WILLisms@gmail.com if you would like to host the Carnival of Revolutions at some point in the future. We prefer that you have some experience blogging on these issues, as it requires a moderate level of expertise to prepare the carnival each week.

The submission deadline is each Sunday evening, but the exact deadline really up to the host each week. Any blogger can submit a post on the rapid flurry of events we see each week, or on a broader theoretical idea. The criteria are fairly broad, but inclusion of your submission is ultimately up to the host.

To submit a post for a future Carnival of Revolutions, use this page, or email the host for the week directly.

    Will Franklin at WILLisms.com and Robert Mayer at publispundit,com took a brave stand!… Quite a intense situation for Will to be subjected to that type of treatment!… Robert’s comments from Mojtaba Aghamohammdi were also quite intense!…BUT… The most horrific thing is the way the Iranian Regime continues the mascarade of a free and fair election!…WILLisms.com has it all on video; Yet they continue denying what they did to deny votes from anti-Iranian terrorist Regime!…Take a look at the comments from Mojitaba Aghamohammdi!… He claims he was the one who helped host this election!

    This may sound like a dumb question, but why do you call this a “carnival”?

    Per Bakhtin, I suppose. 😉

    Jennifer, I’m not entirely sure why we call it a carnival. I’ve always assumed it’s because every week the ‘carnival’ ups sticks and finds a new blog to call home, but if anyone else knows different…

  5. “Elections are taking place in the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, which over which Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a war in the early 1990s. Azerbaijan, which still claims sovereignty over the enclave called the election illegitimate. Sadly, I couldn’t find any bloggers covering this story either, so we have to say thanks once again to BBC News for the scoop.”

    Not true. I’ve been blogging a little about it at:
