Kiwi carnival - "Bring out your posts!"

Now here's a brilliant idea from Philosophy et cetera. With the tremendous growth in the NZ blogosphere he proposes a 'Carnival of NZ Bloggers.'
There are so many kiwi blogs around that I can't keep track of them all. So it would be nice to have a weekly or fortnightly roundup of the best posts from around the country. As with the Philosophers' Carnival, this would serve to benefit both readers and authors. It might also benefit the kiwi blogging community as a whole, by encouraging dialogue across party lines, and promoting substantive debate over mere partisan hackery.
The carnival he proposes would be run in the same way and for the same reasons as the Philosophers' Carnival, the Carnival of the Capitalists, the Carnival of the Vanities, the History Carnival, the Carnival of the Canucks, and of course The Kissing Booth.
Each week (or however often we end up making it), each blogger may submit a single recent post of theirs, according to the instructions below. At the end of the week, the carnival "host" then creates a post which showcases all the submissions, offering a brief description and linking to each.
Naturally, as he has 'ownership' of the idea, 'Philosophy et cetera' (to whom I still owe a response -- it's coming, I promise) has offered to host the first Kiwi Carnival this coming Sunday 19 June.
