I think this is a good place to reiterate that I'm interested in beginning an EA blogging carnival where each month, somebody picks a theme and everybody blogs about that theme.

If there's enough interest, I'll pick a topic for Jan 1 submissions.

Richard Yetter Chappell ran the Philosophers' Carnival for many years. I believe he is a member of Giving What We Can and is sympathetic to EA ideas. You may want to contact him for advice.

Cool! Will posts on these appear in the "Recent on EA Blogs" sidebar? That would save having to set up a subscription.

Hi Larks. In the sidebar, we include, in no particular order: Slate Star Codex (rationality posts only) Reflective Disequilibrium GiveWell Blog 80,000 Hours Blog Good Ventures blog CFAR blog Giving Gladly Blog (Julia Wise) Jeff Kaufman (Giving posts only)

When we included more external posts, people said that it obscured important posts about effective altruism, so I'm pretty happy with this list the way it is.

Thanks. That list seems to be a copy of the one I created originally, plus a few additions, which I've now incorporated.
