Hi, I'm starting a blog carnival about the Beatles that comes out with it's first edition Sept. 3. I was wondering if you have any tips for me to help promote it. I'm going through but haven't gotten much of a response yet.

I started out doing a lot of research to put together the carnival. I found the blog posts, and then I would contact the blog owner and let them know I featured them in the blog carnival and if they would like to regularly submit I gave how they could. It took be a full day, or more, when I first started the carnival. It is not easy getting it established. You have to spend time contacting people with appropriate blogs and let them know about your carnival.

Good luck!
