Many thanks to Chris Brady at Targuman for the latest roundup of biblioblog highlights:
Biblical Studies Carnival XXV
I continue to be impressed by the excellent work that the carnival editors do each month. While on the topic, I want to add that I think we should not be dismayed if, in 2008, we find that it becomes impossible to sustain the carnivals every month in the way that they have been sustained over the last couple of years. The biblioblogging community is growing all the time, and the business of summarising a month's posts is a tough one and it relies on the editor doing a lot of work, and many making contributions. If we do miss the odd month, as we did recently, I don't think we should worry. We are never going to be completely comprehensive, and if the carnivals have to become a little more occasional, and if there is a rise in ad hoc informal carnivals, then that's fine. I used to have a "Featured Links" section on the New Testament Gateway, and at first I sustained it every month for several years. But as time went on, it became impossible to keep up that level of posting and eventually it became an occasional feature. So I just want to say that it will be fantastic if the carnivals can sustain the current quality and quantity, but let's not be too concerned if we have to go a little more ad hoc and occasional in the long run.
