Summer Blog Carnival Finalists Announced
July 30, 2012 BY Elise Glaum
This year, the Shot@Life team has been traveling across the country to educate Americans about the importance of global vaccines. We’ve met a lot of bloggers along the way, bloggers who are passionate about children, global health, advocating for a cause, and storytelling for social good. We asked these bloggers to join us at a summer blog carnival and celebrate childhood with us. The blog carnival took place last week and tomorrow, one lucky blogger will be chosen to have their blog post featured on Real Simple’s blog, Simply Stated!
Real Simple just announced the finalists for the blog carnival. Read their favorite posts and comment below to let us know who you think deserves to be featured on Real Simple!
