The leap-year edition of the Market Anarchist blog carnival is being hosted here and is scheduled to post on February 29, 2008. It only happens once every four years, excepting years divisible by 100 unless they’re also divisible by 400. So let’s make it a good one.
A few notes: I will be on vacation from February 21-February 26. Also, I will likely not be available on February 28. Please have your submissions to me prior to 11:59pm, Eastern time, on February 27. Late entries will be forwarded to the host of next month’s carnival.
Anyways. What we need is content. If you are pro-market, pro-freedom, anti-violence, or anti-state, please submit your relevant blog posts for consideration. You have my word that your post won’t be ridiculed, unless you’re spamming us with multi-level marketing schemes or other bullshit unrelated to the advancement of liberty. If you do not have a blog, but would like to contribute, feel free to submit a thoughtful essay through my “contact me” page. I’ll even mark up the HTML for you.
So far I’ve gotten 14 submissions, which is a lot. Unfortunately, nearly all of them have been crap. Marketing ideas. How to market your blog ideas. How to make money on the internet ideas. How to copyright things for your marketing ideas. One clown wanted to graphically illustrate the product life cycle. Apparently he thinks this is the Marketing-101-at-Community-College Blog Carnival. Diego’s
entry spam is titled Make a Wish & Nothing Happens.
My wish is that people like Diego would stop spamming our carnivals. The cruel irony is that my disdain for these ass-hats is actually driving traffic to their sites.
