    I read on a blog somewhere that a good way to get visitors to your blog is to submit stuff to blog carnivals. But, er...do people still do them? They seem kind of old school to me, and I didn't think people even still hosted them.

    Blog carnivals mostly died a couple of years ago. I used to get some decent quality links from them without much work. There are still a handful operating. Its worth it to go to blogcarnival.com and check out the available list. If you can find one on topic you should definitely submit your post.

    I wish there was a guest blogging clearinghouse like blogcarnival.com.

    Blog carnivals have out dated. Now blogger is not using it while they are giving preference to guest post.

    Check when that blog post was written... Carnivals are outdated so the blog you read was probably a while old too.
