and Rather Zaftig
Way back when Mr. BagelBlogger, very ably assisted by his beautiful wife, the lovely Baleboosteh, took up my challenge and started JPIX-The Jbloggers Picture Carnival. Seventeen editions later they retired from the jblogging scene.
A couple of months ago Little Frumhouse announced that she wanted to bring JPIX back to life. And she did! If you're interested in hosting one, or blog carnival—for sending links is "down" you can contact her at http://email@example.com.
Please have the blog-courtesy to post about this and mail the link around, too. Thank you!
While I still, hopefully, have your attention, a word from our sponsor, I'd like to remind you that there are two other jblog—Jewish Blogger—carnivals, Kosher Cooking Carnival and Havel Havelim. KCC accepts posts about all aspects of kosher cooking, including Halacha, tradition, jokes, anecdotes, restaurant and cookbook reviews. Send your links here. HH includes all sorts of posts about anything Jewish or Israeli; send your links here.
There seems to be a problem with some of the blogger posts, and I'll try to fix it, but I found that if I delete the slash / at the end of the link in the box and then press enter, the post comes up just fine. There may be a problem with the template I've been using, which doesn't need a slash for blogger. Sorry.
I am going to try something very new and complicated for this edition. Leora has been trying to teach me how to embed links into pictures. So, my plan is to chose a picture from each post submitted to this JPIX, and when you click it you'll get to the original post and discover who blogged it. If it works, it should be great, and if it doesn't, it doesn't, and I'll have to repeat the remedial blogging course. Actually, it's working with one, minor problem; I can't control the sizes.
How I did this:
First I copy (a few times) the basic code from Leora's instructions, and then I substitute the crucial links with the post and picture links from the participating blogs. Yes, I'm doing it on word, like I prepare all of my carnival posts.
I duplicated the trial run, and it seems to work. So now, dig in and enjoy by clicking each picture and visiting the posts. And please post this carnival on your blog and send its link to everyone you can think of plus.
So, it's like riding a roller coaster. Strap yourself in and hang onto your seats! And I hope that the carnival post isn't too big, long and heavy. Here goes!
I'm pretty sure that I included every blogger who sent something in. Towards the end I realized that it was getting quite enormous, and I began limiting the amount of posts per blogger. I really wonder how many blogs you'll be looking at. Most of the posts included more than the one picture I put up. So there really is a lot to see.
Enjoy! Please blog about it on your blogs, and pass around the link and encourage everybody to click the pictures and meet the blogs.
