Accepting Submissions for the March 2012 Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse

The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is a monthly event. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse. All forms of abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, spiritual, verbal) are discussed. We highlight blog posts that include: child abuse survivor stories, art and poetry, child abuse as a topic in the news media, as well as PTSD, disassociation, and other areas of abuse "aftermath" that adult survivors are forced to deal with. We also link to hopeful posts about therapy, recovery, and healing from abuse. All forms of child advocacy and awareness are included.

I'm starting this month's announcement with a little housekeeping.
The last few months have hit me hard, and I have been dealing with a lot of personal things. I'm sorry I haven't been as available as usual. Life is getting back on track now, and I'm excited to see lots of growth and participation in the carnival this year.

In the midst of that, we have had issues for the past six months with the Blog Carnival site - the most problematic one being them not emailing the submissions to the hosts. Because of that (and the frustrating lack of help over there) I have decided to create a form for us so I can ensure that no submissions are being lost. The form can be accessed at anytime here, and I will have it embedded at the bottom of this post.

I know change is difficult, but hopefully this will make it easier for the hosts each month, and will work well for submitters also. The information requested on the form is the same information you have been submitting at the blog carnival site, so there is no change there. Thank you for hanging with me as we move forward with this new system.

The March edition of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse will be hosted here, at From Tracie. 

All of our regular categories will be open:
-Advocacy and Awareness
-Aftermath
-Healing and Therapy
-In the News
-Poetry
-Survivor Stories
-Art Therapy

The deadline for submissions is March 28th, and the carnival will be posted on the 30th. I'm excited to see what y'all share this month. You can submit something written especially for this edition, but please feel free to submit an older post as well.

If you are interested in hosting an upcoming edition of the carnival, please let me know! 

The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse and to share important posts with others who might not be frequent readers of an author's blog, and expose one's work to a wider audience. There are so many wonderful bloggers who are contributing to the cause of ending and recovering from child abuse. If you, as a reader or author, know of other blogs that you find helpful, please encourage them to submit to an upcoming issue of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse so we can continue to receive high quality submissions from a wide swath of bloggers.
