Welcome to the October 20, 2010 edition of the Carnival of Cities blog carnival, where we tour the world in a single blog post.  This is a fun way to find new voices and it can also help with link building and SEO.

Thanks very much to the host of the previous edition, Absolutely the Hague!, and I’ll be the next host on the Perceptive Travel blog on November 3rd.

Submissions are due by noon CST on Tuesday, November 2. Submit to the Carnival using this form – a recent post about any aspect of ONE, single city (or a fair-sized town.)

If you’d like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog (December 1, 15 and 29 are open) please contact me at Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!
