Welcome to the Carnival of Cities blog carnival, where we tour the world in a single post, via submissions from a variety of different blogs, all about any aspect of one, single city or fair-sized town.
The previous Carnival edition was hosted on Perceptive Travel Blog, and it will return there on March 21.
We’ve been having some problems with submissions being accepted properly on the main Carnival website, and have contacted them for a resolution.
If you would like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog, please contact the Carnival organizer: Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!

Thanks for featuring my article! It was a very fun blog carnival and I have directed my readers your way! Thanks!
Have been using the “Broken Link Checker” WordPress Plugin for some months now – via Darren of My Life in Leeds (coincidentally featured here) who once suggested it – and saw problems with the CoC I once hosted (internet eons ago)…Glad to see you’re still around, but it appears we’ll have to bury the carnival site in the Internet graveyard…Sad!
Thanks for the mention Sheila, much appreciated!! 🙂
Belated thanks for including my post.
