What is a carnival?

Some webrings host collaborations called carnivals.  The ring owner decides on a topic and invites members of the ring to write on that topic.  The owner then provides links to each of those sites that submit links.  BlogCarnival.com provides a list of several carnivals ongoing in the blogosphere.

Note that a carnival and a meme are not the same thing.

    Thanks so much for clarifying the difference between a Meme and a Carnival. It was confusing to me. I just signed up for several Carnivals. They look like a great way to advertise my posts.
