As promised, here’s a roundup of some of the blogs that have appeared in the last few months. And a fair crop it is too. The list represents all the blogs submitted and there is no political bias from me.
To be fair I’ve ranked them in alphabetical order and no qualititive judgements should be inferred – make your own mind up.
Without further ado…
The Apollo Project missed the August 1 cutoff by two days which was close enough. It’s a Liberal Democrat group blog.
Atlantic Rift is a transatlantic blog run by Jonn in London and Aaron in New York. Jonn assures me “we started in late June, but we didn’t
have any actual readers until we started half-assedly publicising it
in at least August”. Oh, go on then.
Drinking From Home, at four days old, is the youngest blog on the list and is currently tracking down “those politically correct poltroons whose craven deference to Islamic fundamentalism hastens the erosion of our islandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s traditions and rights”.
Gavpolitics is a Conservative blogger and prospective candidate in the May 2006 council elections. He’s in my neck of the woods as well.
GenghisBlog storms across the plains to bring us his own brand of right wing vituperation.
Great Britain, Not Little England might be familiar to some as MatGB has been mingling as all good bloggers should. Him and PaulJ are “reclaiming the British ideals from the small minded nanny staters”.
(Nominated by Me.)
Mr Eugenides expounds on an impressive array of subjects.
Optimates is brought to us by Daniel Lucraft, Cameroonian (Cameronite?) “libertarian conservative”.
Pigdogfucker is “glorifying terrorists, tolerating intolerance, and making excuses for the inexcusable”.
Frank O’Dwyer is Rearranging the Deckchairs while expounding on politics and moral philosophy.
Robert Sharp gets an entry for his own drum – politics, ethics and some slices of life thrown in.
Thesisville! is your genuine “leftie post-structuralist marxist” (it says here) going slowly insane on the final year of a PHD thesis. And has just announced a blogging hiatus, dammit.
(Nominated by Jarndyce.)
Tim Neale’s Tea4Two was created in the aftermath of the July 7 bombings and now has an emphasis on civil liberties.
World Weary Detective gives us his views as Metropolitian Police detective. AKA “A view of life from the thin layer between you and the underclass”.
And that’s your lot. A big girlie kiss to all those who sent their blogs or made nominations.
Go forth and refresheth thy blogroll.
