Confessions of a Carnival of Real Estate Host/Judge

October 13, 2007

carnival-of-real-estate.jpgAs many of you know, this weekend we’re hosting the 63rd Carnival of Real Estate. I would like to say that I am totally pumped about it, but honestly, I have mixed emotions. Seriously, each time I receive another carnival entry, I have a tiny panic attack. I continue to ask myself, who am I to opine on what is great, and what is not so great? In blogging, it is easy to skim and move-on, but this weekend I will have to read each entry and rank them- this is alien to me, this ranking you speak of. All of you that are on our blogroll are great, and I am sure there are another 100 that are equally as great, but if I were asked to rank them- forget it, there’s no way.

So, I promise to read each one, deeply, and pray that the greatest will simply rise to the top all by itself and then each one line up behind the first- just like good little soldiers.

I thought I would revisit a few of the previous C.O.R.E. hosts tonight to see what I could learn of how they established what great is, but I have a feeling I’m just going to have to wing this ‘ranking’ thing on my own. Here’s the list I’m running down tonight… join me, won’t you?
