Hi everyone! So, part of why Tost and I were keen to get this blog up and running last month was that we've volunteered to host the second Carnival of Aros, a blogging festival for and about aro people! Each month has a different theme and for this month our theme is:

It's great to be aro!

What's a blogging festival?
It's an event where people are encouraged to create and share content related to prompts on a given topic. As the hosts we'll be promoting everyone's content here on this blog, and at the end of the month we'll post a round-up collection of everything that has been submitted.

Where can I post?
Anywhere you like! Of course we welcome posts to this community; Dreamwidth accounts are free and anyone who has one can post here. If you want to post elsewhere that's fine too - just put a link to your post in the comments below (you don't need an account for this) so that we can include it in the Carnival collection. If you want to make a post anonymously, you can also put your submission in the comments below, or email it to one of the mods (bydontost at gmail or eatingcroutons at gmail), and we can post your submission to this community.

What can I post?
Anything you like! We welcome all kinds of content, as long as it’s related to this month’s theme.

What are this month's prompts?
The overall theme for the month is It's great to be aro! and some prompts we've suggested to get you thinking are:
  • A time I was glad I was aro

  • Reasons I love my identity

  • The best thing about the aro community

  • What things have improved for aros?

  • How can we improve aro experiences even more?

Of course you're not just limited to these exact prompts! Anything you want to create about the positive sides of being aro is welcome. And if you want to respond to multiple prompts you are absolutely welcome to make more than one submission - we would be thrilled to promote anything and everything you'd like to create :D

How can I contact the hosts?
You can drop us a line in the comments below if you have general questions - again, you don't need an account for this. If you do have a Dreamwidth account you can message Tost or message Crou privately. Or you can email us at bydontost at gmail, or eatingcroutons at gmail.

Happy Carnival everyone!

Done my post! I had the idea of what I would do the moment I saw the prompts. I just hope I have learnt enough about the site now that I'm giving you the right link.
