Introduction/Shameless self-promotion - Chris

Chris Rigby

4th year Chemistry student, St John Ambulance volunteer, nightclub steward/first aider. I got into blogging by reading Random Acts of Reality as research when I first started looking into paramedicine, and was finally convinced to take the plunge and start blogging myself when I started commenting fairly regularly on Sam's blog, On the Clock, and realised that the best way to integrate with the blogging community was to become a blogger myself. Despite never having been able to keep a diary for more than a couple of days as a child (probably because I had nothing interesting to write about), I'm really enjoying blogging, and being able to get my opinion out on the net, as well as getting talking to new people.

If anyone wants to contribute to this here listing, please get in touch in any of the comments sections

Week 1

The theme this week will be Science blogs. As a chemistry student, I should probably have come across some fo these by now, but I haven't, and I want to rectify this.

Any major blogs that are found will be listed, but we as a team will each briefly review a lesser known science blog (If you want to be included, drop us a message). Not every member of the team will take part every week, and hopefully the team will grow over time.

There are introductions going to gradually come as people get around to them

The Project

The plan here is to create a resource list, a place where you, the reader, can come to find new blogs to read, and a way of getting blogs read by a wider audience.

Each member of the team will each week find a relatively unknown blog, generally from a specific theme, and link to it, along with a brief review of the blog. This is not meant to be a place for us to criticise, but to advertise new blogs we've found and enjoy.

The team at conception consists of me (Chris), Nick, Chapati, Cheating Death, and hopefully a couple of others when they get back to me :-)LinkLink
