Carnival of Atheist Parenting
After much research I have realized that the internet has very little for parents who are seeking to raise wonderful secular children.  Not one to sit on my heels, this new blog carnival is for YOU!

I am a completely open atheist and very willing to represent our growing and vibrant community!

This weekly (bi-weekly?) carnival is for all atheist/agnostic/humanist/secular parents who are THINKING and wanting to create a healthy, vibrant, and positive upbringing for their beloveds and who want to share their ideas and encouragement for secular parents in this nonsecular world.

This is NEW.   It will change, evolve, and GROW.  Please help me to get this venture off of the ground by getting your courage up and sharing your blog post with your secular musings, thoughts, activities, joy, and entertaining writing for the secular parent!  Be on the cutting edge with me.  My goal is to grow this blog carnival for atheist/agnostic/humanist/secular families and to, NOW, a website just for the carnival.

There is so much stuff in the internet in general and on the zillions of blogs out there, just finding worthwhile pieces to read can be time-consuming and frustrating.  If you are blogging on secular parenting, this carnival is the place to share your work with like-minded bloggers.  If you are a secular parent, this carnival is to bring good writing to you from others who are DOING IT!
You can help the secular parenting community by sharing this carnival on your blog, on facebook groups, in your other social media, by encouraging your known associates and friends to read and contribute, and by grabbing my button and sharing it on your blog and other social media.  But mostly, by reading, writing, and sharing.

Your blog post does not have to be, specifically about atheism or secularism, but should reflect these qualities.  Ideally, posts will focus on secular parenting, it's struggles, joys, questions, advice, daily moments, humor, and the like.  Though I highly prefer openness, I understand the struggles many secular families endure in the name of freethought; you are welcome to use pseudonyms.  New or very recent blog posts preferred. are due Sunday evenings at 6pm.
If this carnival does not get off the the ground within a few months, I will end it.  Let's make it work.
