September 2011 Biblical Studies Carnival Episode III: Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!

Episode III of the Biblical Studies Carnival is coming soon, and its theme will be…well, since almost no one expressed any interest in offering their opinion about what the theme should be, the theme will be a surprise, and thus inevitably something that I will like and no one else will. But I will ask [Read More...]

First Monthly Bibliovlog Carnival (Topic: Mythicism)

Several bloggers have joined in the discussion about the term “biblioblog” and the question of biblioblog and biblioblogger identity. Peter Kirk chimed in, noting the irony that the top post of the day was my post about the Doctor Who Experience. Doug Chaplin doesn’t care. Chris Brady seems to, slightly.

How to Determine the Queen and King of the Biblioblogosphere

There have been major struggles for dominance in the biblioblogosphere, as bloggers have sought to attain the coveted #1 rank, and debated and introduced new methods of evaluation – from Alexa rankings to voting.
