Blogroll Updated

For the reasons given by Fred Clark here I’ve updated my blogroll. I’ve removed anything that hadn’t had a post in six months or more, and added a lot of new ones or ones that I’d somehow missed.

I’ve tried to improve the gender balance, but it’s still too skewed towards cis men (about 60/40 cis men/other, which is better than it was, but still not good). I’m aware this is a problem. and I’m going to continue to try to improve it. I’m sure there are women and non-binary people who should be on the list and aren’t.

But anyway. Updated blogroll. Over there ——>

Proper post tonight

    I didn’t!

    Mind you, to be fair, my blog’s been dead for like four years…

      Yeah, that’s the only reason I deleted it. I wanted to have a blogroll of active stuff only. If you ever start blogging again, it’ll be linked straight away.

        Natcherly! Though God knows when that might happen, I will probably have to build my own website for it, or something…

    My dangerous pro-Corbyn tendencies have not made me persona non grata :-)

    • Andrew Hickey says:

      Course not. I’m a Liberal — *we* don’t do purges ;)

      • Mike Taylor says:

        No, of course. But it’s going to be genuinely interesting — surely even for a died-in-the-wool Lib Dem — to see how Labour responds if Corbyn not only wins, but wins as decisively as polling suggests. Let’s get that Overton window shifted back towards the left!

    The Fred Clark thing is interesting to me, because I’ve thought for some time that the blogroll link system is actually something bloggers repurposed for their own ends. These things were supposed to be…what, diaries? Instead we’ve used them as makeshift community-building platforms, even though that activity is (in my opinion, anyway) something that’s constrained by the diaristic format. So the sidebars have been repurposed as workarounds, to ameliorate diaristic slippage?

    Well, the thought’s pretty much an idle one, but…
