For those of you not familiar with "blog carnivals", these are virtual gatherings of bloggers wherein a host blogger puts out a call for blog entries related to a given topic and interested/invited bloggers step up to the plate and submit either new or old writings. The host then posts links to all of the entries within a narrative on their own blog. Here is a link to an article which describes carnivals well.
I am pleased to announce that two of my recent Digital Doorway entries are included in the latest version of Grand Rounds, a medical carnival which "makes its rounds" every so often. I hope to host a future version of Grand Rounds in the coming year.
Thanks to all who sent birthday wishes by comment, email, or telepathy, and blessings to you all!
