Sb Has 16 Active Blogs

A year ago I took a look at the surrounding landscape here at Sb, investigating which of the blogs were active – defined as which ones had seen an entry during the month up to 24 Jan ’15. Now I’ve looked at the month up to 17 Jan ’16. The result isn’t great. Four blogs…

Ten Years Of Blogging

I’ve been blogging for a bit more than ten years now, having started on 16 December, and today Aard turns nine! I was inspired to begin blogging by my wife who started in October 2005. She worked as a news reporter at the time, and journalists were early adopters in Swedish blogging. I was doing…

Sb Has 19 Active Blogs

I’m not a big blog reader, sad to tell, and I have almost no insight into what’s going on elsewhere in the science blogosphere including ScienceBlogs. But a few days ago I got curious about what the network I’m on is like these days, and I did some investigating. I was surprised by what I…

Nine Years Of Blogging

I’ve been blogging for a bit more than nine years now, and today Aard turns eight! Traffic for Oct, Nov, Dec has been ~450 daily readers. Dear Reader, is there anything you’d like me to write about?

Eight Years Of Blogging

I’ve been blogging for a bit more than eight years now, and today Aard turns seven. Traffic for late 2013 is ~600 daily readers, pretty low compared to the most recent peak at 1000 in early 2012. This is probably because of my lower posting frequency and because the URLs of individual older blog entries…

Aardvarchaeology Summit

One of the main attractions to me of blogging is my core group of smart and funny regular commenters. The most prolific of them is Birger Johansson. As far as I can tell he’s been with the blog since November 2009, almost four years. I’ve recently invited him to write a weekly guest entry using…

Toss Me A Bone

I feel like blogging but there’s not much going on over the summer and I don’t know what to write about. Toss me a bone, Dear Reader! Suggest a topic, ask me a question, gimme a link!

Kay Glans used to edit the literary pages of Svenska Dagbladet, Sweden’s main conservative* newspaper, and Axess Magasin, a conservative Swedish arts & social sciences mag that also has a TV channel. The latter’s standard is high, and I’ve been particularly pleased to find repeated staunch rebuttals of post-modernism there. What I don’t like much…
