July Topic For Cold's Gold Blogging Carnival

Cold's Gold Blogging Carnivals: July 11th Topic

 These blogging carnivals are excellent resources for our readers to get some excellent nuggets of knowledge all in one place. They are also excellent tools for bloggers to get recognized and start to drive traffic from our sites to yours. I highly recommend participating in these blogging carnivals as your submission's will tend to be some of the most visited content on your site. Be sure to read about the benefits of blogging carnivals, if you are undecided about participating in Cold's Gold Blogging Carnival.

What Is a Blogging Carnival?

A blogging carnival is a compilation of blog posts all created around one specific topic, which is chosen by the host site. Entries into the carnival are submitted to the host. The host then organizes the posts into one big post with links back to the original articles on the participating author's sites.

Rules for Cold's Gold Factory Blogging Carnivals
  • Create the entire post on your own site and go ahead and post it live. (You don't have to wait until the last few days before the entry is due.)
  • Send me an email with a link to your post. SSmith0911 (at) live (dot) com
  • Submissions must be in by the 10th of each month.
  • All carnivals will go live on Cold's Gold Factory on the 11th of each month.
  • All World of Warcraft bloggers are invited to participate. You don't have to author a gold making blog, but you need to follow the set topic.
  • Each post written for the carnival should begin with a link with the anchor text "Cold's Gold Blogging Carnival" and link to

July 11th Blogging Carnival Topic
Create Your Own Ideal Alt
The Ideals Alts Series has concluded and I now open the door for the other bloggers to create their own Ideal Alt.  For this carnival, your assignment is to create a single template for a gold making alt.  Choose the race, class, and professions to maximize the potential of a specific role that an alt could perform.  Explain the role and why you made the choices you did.  What's this WoW Alt character's purpose?  Remember that readers will be returning to this post for ideas once they are looking to make a new alt.  Have fun with this one!  You can review the Ideal Alts Series below for an idea.  I mainly covered some various types of farmers.  There are still plenty of alt ideas to cover for the blogging carnival.

The Dungeon Farmer – An Ideal Heroic Farming Alt
The Collector – An Ideal Vendor Flipping and Pet Selling Alt

The Solo Raider and World Boss Killer

I highly recommend participating in this blogging carnival as this topic will be revisited by new readers and will continue to bring you traffic to your site long after the carnival is over.
