Teach Abroad Blog Carnival

Do you run a blog? Have you ever heard of a blog carnival? A blog carnival is a blogging promotional event that is intended to drive traffic to participating blogs.

Reach To Teach has organized its very first blog carnival, which will feature our favorite travel and ESL bloggers from around the world. We’re still looking for participants, and anyone can join in the fun just email to get involved.

By participating in our Blog Carnival, you’ll be reaching a wider audience of readers, plus you’ll be posting helpful content and advice on your own blog for other teachers who are thinking about teaching English abroad. 

This is how it works:

  • Each month I will select one of our travel writers to host the blog carnival on their blog.
  • We are asking participants to write about a topic related to teaching and/or travel
  • Everyone writes a blog entry about this topic. You can write anything you want, as long as your article is based on the topic provided. You publish your article on your blog.
  • Include an introduction at the top of the page that introduces your readers to the Blog Carnival. You might want to use something like this: Today’s article is written for the Reach To Teach Teach Abroad Blog Carnival, a monthly series that focuses on providing helpful tips and advice to ESL teachers around the globe. I’ll be posting a new ESL related article on my blog on the 4th of every month. Check back for more articles, and if you’d like to contribute to next month’s Blog Carnival, please get in touch with Dean at, and he will let you know how you can start participating! 
  • Send the link to your article to the host along with a short description of your article and an author bio. Don’t forget to send the host your link. That’s how we’re going to send traffic to your site! The host will upload everyone’s article and author bios into an article on their blog and then they will send you the link of completed entries to insert into your blog.
  • Next month, it’s someone else’s turn to host.

If you want to participate, get in touch with me at Your article needs to be live on your blog by the 4th of every month. The official round-up of links will be posted on the hosts blog on the 5th of every month.

This is a great opportunity to draw more attention to our blogs as we are putting our heads together and providing a wealth of information on just one topic. It’s also very attractive to our readers.

So what are you waiting for? Buckle up and let’s get this carnival started!
