The Boneyard Charges into 2011

As Boneyard 2.5 approaches, I thought it was a good time to set the stage for 2011. I'm repeating some of what I said when I first started this blog as a homebase for the carnival.

Its crucial that we get plenty of people stepping up to host editions of the Boneyard. The first four months of 2011 are spoken for. If you would like to host one of the open dates below, email me at boneyardblogcarnival(at)gmail(dot)com and I'll update the list.

January 4: When Pigs Fly Returns
February 1 Deep Sea News
March 1: Superoceras
April 5: Sorting Out Science
May 3: Open
June 7: Open
July 5: Open
August 2: Open
September 6: Open
October 4: Open
November 1: Open
December 6: Open

As for how hosts moderate their editions, I leave that to their own judgment. Besides paleontology, posts about geology and other related sciences under the banner of natural history seem like fair game to me. Since I write primarily about dinosaurs, I'll even include relevant bird research.

Why Bother?
You may not be entirely familiar with the concept of a blog carnival. You may be wondering why you should bother. I can do no better than to urge you to read this characteristically wonderful post by Bora. He makes a good case for them, and lays out the benefits and responsibilities.
