Other recommended blogsJune 26, 2011
As a small counterweight to the egotism and self-promotion that creep into my blogging, I’m giving the Crowther stamp of approval to some blogs other than this one.
• Runner’s World Daily. This blog is written mostly by Mark Remy, who is the funniest running writer I’ve encountered on the web. Here’s a recent example of his work: When Racehorses Read ‘Born to Run.’
• Oikos. This is an ecology journal with a new blog to which my friend Jeremy Fox is a primary contributor. Many of his posts are fairly ecology-specific, but some are remarks applicable to science in general.
• Sing About Science & Math. Oops, here’s that self-promotion creeping in again; the SAS&M blog is written by me. After a year of doing it, though, I think it’s starting to get pretty good. Check out my series of interviews with science songsters, for example.
