In all the excitement of our weekend travel, two important milestones went by unmentioned. Saturday marked the two-year anniversary of my Ph.D. defense, and the one year anniversary of my move from blogger to ScienceBlogs. In celebration of the latter, I undertook the ambitious and miserably overdue task of updating our blogroll. The old blogroll was nearly as old as Minnow and it didn’t reflect the incredible growth in women in STEM related blogs over the past two years.
We’ve got so many and such excellent blogs in our community these days, that they deserve more than one blogroll. They deserve a party, a tab, a page…..Meet the new blogrolls.
The blogrolls are mainly limited to blogs authored by women, though there is a section at the bottom for blogs by allies. I thought it would be awesome if we could find other blogs written by women with the same field of interest, so I’ve tried to generally lump the blogs into disciplines. Some got lumped together, because I didn’t want to single anybody out.
Now even though I’m feeling pretty good about updating the blogrolls (and getting a proposal out the door), I have no doubt that I’ve overlooked some of you. I’m also sure that some of you will disagree with how I’ve categorized your blogs. So consider this comment thread open for nominating blogs for inclusion and repositioning currently listed blogs. Two caveats though: (1) Please don’t propose a complete overhaul of the organization. I simply haven’t the energy. (2) Don’t expect a lightning response to getting the additions listed. I’ll keep adding to the blogrolls as I have time.
