Yes, another science blogging community among the many and yet another where an established print magazine enhances its online presence with a blogging network. And a bit more shuffling of the chairs on the deck as people with established blogs switch places or even some people start up whole new blogging personas. The Popular Science…

Yes, the science blogging community has certainly seen some gyrations in the last few years with a bunch of new networks sprouting up, sometimes from the ashes of other networks, sometimes completely on their own. The latest is Phenomena: A science salon hosted by National Geographic magazine. Phenomena is a gathering of spirited science writers…

Happpy 10th Blogiversary to me!

Ten years ago today, three days shy of my 40th birthday, I started a blog more or less on a whim. I have to admit, I only had a pretty vague idea of what blogging was all about or what its potential was. After all, my main inspiration for getting started wasn’t even a blog…

I’d like to extend a huge science librarian blogosphere welcome to Information Culture, the newest blog over at Scientific American Blogs! This past Sunday evening I got a cryptic DM from a certain Bora Zivkovic letting me know that I should watch the SciAm blog site first thing Monday morning. I was busy that morning…

I’m doing a short presentation tomorrow on blogging for researchers as part of a day-long communications workshop for faculty here at York. And since a few months back I created a reading list for a social media presentation for grad students, I thought I’d expand that list in this post and add some more specifically…

I’ve long been a believer in the power of blogs to drive and aggregate conversations at every level. Frivolous, for sure. But also serious and scholarly. The rise of science blogs over the last few years has certainly demonstrated that. In librarianship as well, blogs are a powerful source of comment, theory and practical advice.…

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. 2010 World Science Festival Blog (Dormant, 1 post in…

According to DrugMonkey’s recent post, ScienceBlogs’ new overlords The National Geogrpaphic Society will no longer allow pseudonymous to continue blogging here. I have just been informed that ScienceBlogs will no longer be hosting anonymous or pseudonymous bloggers. In case you are interested, despite extensive communication from many of us as to why we blog under…

I usually don’t feature too many Cracked posts here because, well, they can tend to be a little on the NSFW for a family blog like this one. But this one is very funny and very true. Fortunately, I don’t seem to qualify as any of the worst kinds of blogs, but I guess I’m…

My previous post was about Brian Mathews moving his blog to the Chronicle, a non-librarian blog network. So for this post I thought I’d list all the academic and research librarians I know of that are embedded in non-library blogging communities. On the one hand, it’s a pretty short list. On the other hand, it’s…
