Carnival of Online Dating Submission Guidelines

Please submit your article through the submission form. The submission should be received by the host prior to 8:59pm PST/11:59pm EST on the Tuesday before the Carnival is scheduled to be published. The Carnival is published every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month.

For an article to be accepted, it must meet these qualifications:

  • The entry must fall within the broad topic of dating, online dating, relationships, and the like.
  • Only one article per blog will be accepted each week.
  • The article should be recent, having been published within the last two weeks, but preferrably in the week leading up to the Carnival.
  • Negative articles or rants are subject to rejection by the host.
  • All submissions’ inclusion into that week’s carnival are subject to the host’s approval for that week.
  • Do not submit an article that has already appeared in any other Blog Carnival.
  • Participants must link back to the published Carnival as soon as possible.

Each week’s host has the final say as to which submissions will be included. If your entry was not included, please don’t be offended. Try again the following week. Articles that are off the topic of dating advice, online dating, relationships, and other related topics similar to those will not be included in the Carnival. Also, all spam posts will immediately be deleted and not considered for inclusion.

Once the Carnival is published, it will include links and descriptions to the articles submitted. The host may decide to highlight a few interesting articles in an Editor’s Choice group of selections. The following week, the process would repeat, while the host blog rotates.

If your entry is included in the Carnival of Online Dating, please link to the Carnival on your own blog as soon as possible.
