Carnival of the Blogfaddah

Chablis has come up with a terrific way of exposing more people to Rob's writing talents, and giving his readers a coordinated way to discuss their favourite Acidman posts.

She's calling it The Carnival of the Blogfaddah, and you can get the information for how to participate at that link.

She also explains how to get to some of Rob's earlier archives, which were messed up during a site failure in 2004. I will bet that Google is likely still indexing those older archives, so if you remember a subject matter, try there too.

[Site note: I was inches away from being able to restore those older archives to the main installation, but with this week's events, that will have to wait. If you are a skilled Perl programmer, I would love to talk to you about helping me customise my script to work out the last little bugs.]


Great idea!

I also signed up AV to host the upcoming 200th Carnival of the Vanities with the idea of making it an Acidman memorial edition, heavily featuring entries remembering Rob, maybe some of his favorite topics, and so forth.

Perhaps Sam might also consider putting together a collection of his writings to be published through CafePress.

I would definitely want a collection of his essays on family, growing up in the South, the novel excerpts he posted here, etc.

I believe CafePress is free, unless you want to register an ISBN number to sell on Amazon or Barnes & Noble's sites . . .

I know Perl quite well. Feel free to contact me about any help you need.
