Some Newish Blogs of Note

by J J Cohen

There's Fumblr, as Jonathan announced. And in other big news, Bruce Holsinger has a great new blog, Burnable Books. Broadly speaking, the blog is about the vitality of the past, and that life takes some intriguing forms. Today's installment is a video interview with Paul Strohm.

Though it isn't new, I hope you are reading Anne Harris's wonderful Medieval Meets World. Today's post involves Thoreau, which is odd because last night I dreamed that Eileen had illegally moved into his reconstructed cabin on Walden Pond.

Cory Sparks has a good blog that has recently featured rumination over birds, beauty (visual and sonic), and captivation. Keeping to the avian theme, some graduate students at Ohio State have started a blog called The Birds' Nest. In Romaunce as We Read is another group effort, also quite engaging, this time by graduate students at the University of Rochester.

Those are a few medieval themed blogs you might like to follow. What am I missing?

Quick edit (thanks for the reminder, Anne): a huge oversight was to omit James Smith, Fluid Imaginings. Not new, but if you haven't found it yet ... well, find it.

Thanks, Jeffrey! James Smith's marvelous _Fluid Imaginings_ is a wondrous place to go: http://fluidimaginings.wordpress.com/ It's so exciting to see new blogs appear - good ones all, these. Now, to go hang out at Eileen's new pad...

I hope you'll take a look at mine, God of Wednesday, which is mostly medieval, slanted toward Iceland and the Viking Age: http://www.nancymariebrown.blogspot.com

Thanks for the shout-out! There really has been a multiplication of quality blogging of late. I get excited whenever I look at my RSS feed.

Many thanks for the shout-out, Jeffrey! Fumblr, by the way, is rapidly becoming one of my favorite corners of the interwebs . . .
