There are ones I go to every day. I follow the feeds of others. And I am certainly interested in the New Zealand science blogs. These got a real boost last year when the New Zealand Sciblog platform was created.
So it’s great that the UK Guardian is putting together a list of the “hottest’ science blogs on the internet (see Wanted: The hottest science blogs on the world wide web).
They have already put together an initial list of their own favourite blogs – 18 in total. But there’s a lot more out there. And they don’t seem to be aware of the many New Zealnd blogs.
Never mind. They are asking for additions:
“Most importantly of all we’d love to know your favourite science blogs and websites? The ones you wish you had thought of? The ones you can’t spend a day without checking, or even the ones where you go to for a quick respite from real life? Either leave your thoughts below (go to Post a comment) or tweet me (@alokjha) or the science team (@guardianscience) direct. We’ll collate the suggestions over the next few days and post a list of readers’ recommendations.”
I think all New Zealand science bloggers should comment or tweet the Guardian and/or Alok Jha. Let them know we exist.
