Cold's Gold Blogging Carnival: March 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.  
  • 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.

MARCH 11th Topic: What Was Your Defining Moment?  The moment when the lightbulb came on and you decided to start auctioning or collecting gold.  Remember The Tale of a Gorilla Hunter?  We had such good discussion on that post, I decided to turn it into the March blogging carnival topic.  You can use this carnival topic as an oppurtunity to write in a different style, if you wish.  Maybe attack it from a roleplaying point of view, write it in 3rd person, or be a story teller.  You can get creative with this one gang!
Be sure to check out the previous carnivals if you missed them.
