What with the latest round of departures seemingly immanent with the new “no pseudonymous bloggers” policy, I thought I’d revisit the list I did last year at about this time.

With a few exceptions, I’ll call blogs dormant if there hasn’t been a post in 2011.

There were three new blogs over the last year, We, Beasties, Art of Science Learning and Dean’s Corner, which I’ve added.

I may have missed a couple of other cases of pseudonymous blogging or maybe a move or something, so please feel free to offer corrections in the comments.

    “A vote for science” was an election cycle thing. I suppose we could bring it back. Maybe “cyclic/seasonal” is a better tag for that one.

    I had never heard of that Sciencblogs HQ thing. It seems to have ever had only one post.

    Maybe I shoudl do it myself instead of griping, but a list of who is not on sciblogs anymore and where they are would be better. It would help drive traffic to the people who have left.

    … the latest round of departures seemingly immanent …

    No, such leave-takings, as a matter of going beyond rather than within, must be considered otherwise: but as some are highly visible, we might describe them as eminently transcendent…

    Hi Ed, there are some resources for figuring out some SB expats, like Carl Zimmer’s post here, the epats RSS feed here, an SB expats twitter feed and even a diagram! I’m not sure if any of them are completely up to date, but they’re a start.
