I’m starting a blog carnival on the subject of trust, and wanted to make sure you were aware of it.
As you may know, it’s a subject near and dear to my heart. I believe trust is an increasingly important element in a business world and a society that is becoming more dependent on connections, yet more and more removed from the high-touch interpersonal connections of old. A higher-trust society is a society that is personally healthier, and also economically richer. Not to mention probably more peaceful.
My hope and ambition for the carnival is to begin establishing a home base, a center of gravity, for people who are interested in fostering greater trusted relationships in various realms of the world.
While my own material is primarily business-oriented, the Carnival of Trust will be explicitly more broad than business alone. Trust is heavily personal in nature, and I hope the submissions will reflect that—postings that deal with personal trust, business trust, and political trust are welcome, as well as pieces on the nature of trust.
I’ll be setting a hard limit of 10 postings per Carnival. The host will personally make the decisions about inclusion, in an inevitably subjective manner intended to push the thinking ahead in those broad areas of trust. I’ll be hosting the first few carnivals, and while quality is the main criterion, I’ll be looking for breadth at the outset as well.
I invite, encourage and urge you to submit pieces for the Carnival. Send them to http://blogcarnival.com/bc/submit_1693.html . The deadline is Thursday May 31st, the
carnival itself will go up Monday June 4th. On an ongoing basis, the Carnival will appear on the first Monday of the month, with submissions due the preceding Thursday.
I look forward to hearing from you!
