Nurses have been coming online and looking for community since the internet was first created. Nurse bloggers take this a few steps farther and create their own communities around their individual specialties and topics they are passionate about. Like most blogging niches, the creators of nursing blogs general comments on each other’s content, and may even create a guest post every now and then. However, major collaboration doesn’t always happen.
There have been a few blog carnivals in the past. Change of Shift, for example, was hosted or the nursing blog Emergiblog. But it has been quite some time since there was a continuous and rolling effort to get nurse blogger all talking about the same topic at the same time. Until Scrubs Magazine stepped up the plate.
Since Scrubs Magazine is a blog and print magazine that is focused on helping nurses to live a better life, it seemed only natural to be the leader. Nurses are coming online every day to search for topics that are affecting their stress level, their moral, their salaries, and their career outlook. What better way to give nurses the resources they need than to have a team of talented nurse bloggers participate in a blog carnival?

But where a blog carnival really shines is in it’s benefits to readers.

A blog carnival is a series of blog posts hosted on different, related blogs which ¦ contains links to other articles covering a specific topic. Most blog carnivals are hosted by a rotating list of frequent contributors to the carnival, and serve to both generate new posts by contributors and highlight new bloggers posting matter in that subject area.
