Introducing: The Disney Blog Carnival!

I wanted to do a quick post introducing everyone else to the:

DisMarks Disney Blog Carnival!

A blog carnival, for those who haven’t seen one before, is a collection of posts submitted from different bloggers on a similar topic. It often takes place weekly or monthly.

DisMarks.com, a Disney-focused social news website, launched a brand new Disney Blog Carnival this weekend. With 30 submissions, the carnival is huge, and it’s a great place to find new Disney blogs that you might like! (BTW, there are several articles about Disney Food!!)

Take a bit of time on this Saturday morning to pay a visit to the Disney Blog Carnival and check out some awesome new — and veteran — Disney blogs!

If you’re a Disney blogger and want to participate in the next Disney Blog Carnival, everyone is welcome. Submissions for the next carnival are due on April 10th, and you can submit your articles or blog posts right here.

Wondering what that little castle button is at the bottom of the blogs? Lemme tell you all about it! I’m taking a break from the food writing today to mention a great new website that’s been beneficial to me both as a blogger and a Disney fan.

DisMarks.com functions as a social media network for Disney information–in other words, it’s Digg for Disney stuff.

Its creators were excited about the rapid increase in Disney blogs, websites, and news outlets popping up throughout the web and wanted to build a clearinghouse that would give an opportunity for webmasters to present their work, and for Disney fans to bring attention to and vote for their favorite sites, blog posts, news items, etc.

In social media and marketing terms, DisMarks offers webmasters a chance to expose their work to a brand new audience, meet and get to know other webmasters, link build, and check out some of the other great Disney media out there.

For Disney fans, DisMarks offers the chance to submit and vote for your favorite websites, media stories, blog posts, and podcasts–and to learn about lots of new Disney sites you might not have seen. And you know you’re seeing the best stuff, because Disney fans just like you have voted certain stories up to the top!

So, if you like any of my food blogs, feel free to click that little castle button at the bottom of the page and vote for the story!
