Introducing: The Health Activist Blog Carnival

We’re very excited to announce a new feature of the WEGO Health Community today: The Health Activist Blog Carnival!

New to the Blog Carnival Concept? Don’t worry, it’s easy!

Each month, we’ll post a new theme for Health Activists to consider and write about. Once you’ve finished your post, you can submit it to the Blog Carnival by leaving a comment in our Health Bloggers Group. At the end of the month, we’ll feature a few of our favorite posts here on the WEGO Health Blog, and make sure everyone has a chance to read and review all the the entries.
Why participate?

The Blog Carnival is a great way to share your thoughts and ideas with other Health Activists – and a great way to reach more people! Plus, you’ll get to hear what other Health Activists think about each topic and get some food for thought each month.
What’s this month’s theme?

The theme for February is: Relationships and Chronic Illness

Whether you want to write about your own experience, how you’ve handled this topic in your community, or something else entirely, the direct you take is completely up to you.
Whatever you chose to write about, there are two things we ask that you do:
  1. Let others know that your post is for the Health Activist Blog Carnival by including the following text at the end of your post: “This post is my entry in February’s Health Activist Blog Carnival. If you’re interested in participating too, you can read all about it here: http://wegohealth.wpengine.com/2010/02/introducing-health-activist-blog.html
  2. Leave a comment on this discussion within the Health Bloggers Group with a link to your entry post. We hope you’ll visit the discussion thread often to check out the latest entries and learn what your fellow Health Activists have to say on the subject!
That’s it!
Use our theme as inspiration for a post on your WEGO Health Blog or your blog on another blogging platform (or both!) and let us know what you think about relationships and chronic illness – we’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

    This is so exciting! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
    I have a post that I've been mulling over regarding this issue and food allergies (and my son's ER trip last weekend). I've been trying to let my anger settle before I write it so I don't attack or personalize it so this is the perfect topic for it.
    A Health Activist Blog Carnival is a wonderful idea. Great job WEGO Health!!
