A Personal Plea

Hi everyone,

I am hoping to appeal to your sense of chronic illness blogging community-ness. 

As of late, participation in PFAM seems to be waning a bit.  Additionally, nearly all dates in the next few months need hosts to commit to them. The following dates need hosts ASAP:

- July 6, 2011
- July 20, 2011
- August 10, 2011
- August 24, 2011
- September 7, 2011

I am really hoping that we can keep the momentum going, and keep PFAM as is.  But if I cannot get enough people to host, it may necessitate reducing the frequency of PFAM, or getting rid of it altogether.  If you don't want to see that happen, I ask that you volunteer to host, or, at the very least, participate in PFAM by submitting posts.

Thanks to Duncan for starting this blog carnival, and thanks to all of you for helping to keep it going strong!


  1. I just found this blog carnival and was so excited to see that there was one for people like me. Even though I have not participated yet (though I will just you wait and see). I would be more than willing to host at my blog. Just let me know what you need me to do.

  2. Hey Leslie,
    I would be willing to host again anytime!

  3. KimberlyKaye, you can check out the advice for hosts tab and then e-mail me with questions. Please also check the updated schedule, as many people responded to my call (but there are still plenty of slots to fill).

    KirBir, I would love for you to host again. Check out the schedule, which has been updated, and let me know what date works for you!

  4. I found this carnival recently and though I haven't participated yet, I hope to, if a subject comes up which works for my brain. :) I hope enough people will get onboard because it's a great resource. :)

    I wish I could say I will host but my energy is so unpredictable (I'm bedbound with severe ME) that I would be afraid to commit to it in case I wasn't able to do the work. I'm going to retweet this post though and maybe someone will be able to sign up as a host. :) Good luck!!
