Call for Submissions: Carnival of Aces – August 2021 – Second Chance at Any Past Topic

Hi everyone! The “Carnival of Aces” is a blogging carnival where each month people are invited to write about a specific topic that is related to asexuality/the ace spectrum in some way. Or creators can participate in other formats including video, poetry, art etc. Guest submissions and anonymous submissions are welcome.

Check out the masterpost for more info:

It’s now August 2021, and it is the seventh time that I am hosting the carnival of aces. Before, I hosted select months in 2014 (twice), 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2019. You can find those in the masterpost under “From Fandom to Family”. I have since switched blogs from my “luvtheheaven” WordPress blog though to this “violetemeraldx” one. I also in the year 2020 hosted a Carnival of Aros as well, which is a very similar sister blogging carnival.

I’ve decided to make the topic for this month “Second Chance at Any Past Carnival of Aces Topic”, where if you missed your chance to participate in a past topic, either by running out of time to write (or finish writing) an entry, or if you didn’t know about the Carnival of Aces back when the topic happened the first time around, now is your chance to share your thoughts on that theme!

Dare I say most of us aces didn’t even understand our own orientation as being asexuality back when the Carnival of Aces first started over a decade ago in May 2011. There have been so many wonderful, expansive topics since then. I would love to see a variety of different types of posts this August, starting with if anyone missed the most recent Carnival of Aces on “Online Dating” and still had thoughts to say on that, but also going back through everything listed as a past topic in the masterpost.
