## In this section we want to highlight the blogs that are exceptionally well-written and in-depth.
## Blogs tend to make it easy for low-quality content, so be extra careful on what goes here.
## We should encourage bloggers to spread the word, so this section might be a good way to do so.

Planning of Karmic Release Parties kicks off!

KarmicKoala is coming, scheduled for release in October 2009.

For every Ubuntu release we like to organise parties all over the world. At these parties everyone is welcome and we get together to celebrate, meet new friends and often introduce people new to Ubuntu to our community and our Operating System. Release parties are not only a great way to meet people but they are a lot of fun!

This guide explains how best to run a great release party and you can get a lot of advice and help with the planning on the ubuntu-event-planners and loco-contacts mailing lists.

Be sure to add your party to KarmicReleaseParties and post pictures of the party in your blog afterwards.
