An appeal for The Giant’s Shoulders posts!

I posted this notice over at The Giant’s Shoulders today:

Hi folks,

Over the past couple of months, the number of submissions to The Giant’s Shoulders has been a little light.  Entries have been great, but it would be nice if we ended up with a few more of them, at least if we want to keep TGS as a monthly carnival.

Up until now, I’ve had the (unofficial and unannounced) policy that authors should submit their own posts to the carnival, but there seems to be no reason why you could nominate other posts that are out there on the history of science.  I know that there’s a lot out there, but relatively few seem to get into the carnival these days!   Keep in mind that there’s no requirement that posts be massive, erudite essays (though we like those, as well); any post which highlights interesting and significant events/people/discoveries in the history of science is welcome.

So far, every month we’ve ended up with a healthy number of acceptable posts, but it always seems to be a nail-biter for me, worrying if there’s going to be a ‘carnival’ with one entry!  I humbly ask everyone to keep an eye out for good science history posts on the internet, and consider submitting them for the carnival…
