A blog carnival is a collection of links to a variety of blogs on a central topic. The Headache Disorders & Migraine Blog Carnival has been created to provide both headache disorders patients and people who blog about them with unique opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

To join us email the link to your submission to me, Diana Lee, at somebodyhealme@gmail.com before each month's deadline (listed below).

Please include the following information:

(1) Your name as you would like it to appear in the carnival.
(2) The title of the blog post you're submitting.
(3) The url of the blog post you're submitting.
(4) The title of your blog.
(5) The url of your blog.

And don't forget to share the link to each month's carnival with your readers through your blog and, if you like, social media. NOTE: It is inappropriate to copy and paste the text of the carnival post and/or the links contained within it into your own blog post. If I see anyone has done this, I'll contact you asking you to remove that information. Please share just the link to the carnival post with any commentary of your own you'd like to add. Thank you.
