Welcome to An Inordinate Fondness (AIF)—the home site for a new monthly blog carnival devoted exclusively to beetles. I’ve been hard at work building the site and getting it ready for its debut in February. Things are progressing, but one thing I still need to create is a badge—if you have any artistic inclination, ideas or suggestions, please leave a comment or send me an email. The inaugural issue will appear right here on February 18, 2010. Afterwards, AIF will be travel to a different host blogger each month. Look for an official announcement on Nature Blog Network once site construction has been complete and we are open for business!
Submissions will be due by the 15th of each month, and the carnival will be posted within 3 days—i.e., on or before the 18th of each month. If you would like to ensure your spot in the inaugural issue of AIF, send your submissions to me via email, or use this handy submission form. I am also looking for hosts for upcoming issues—if you are interested in hosting AIF, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.
