Zero to Hero: DAY 13: BLOGROLL

First of all, no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, and I haven’t missed out Day 12. Well, I have, but for a reason I’ll explain when I get around to publishing it.

Today’s Assignment: Create, edit, or expand your blogroll.

I think I had a Blogroll once before, but then decided to take it away. So I’m reinstating it. Let me know if any of it grabs you by the wotsits.

The sites I’ve chosen are below:

Foundation for Medieval Genealogy

“A prosopography of medieval European noble and royal families, by Charles Cawley. Medieval Lands presents narrative biographical genealogies of the major noble families which ruled Europe, North Africa and Western Asia between the 5th and 15th centuries.” Absolutely stunning website in itself, but the sheer amount of work bedazzles me!

Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs

Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs is all about dinosaur science, art, and pop culture.” I’ve linked to this website in a couple of places already around my blog, but as its right up there on my go-to blogs it deserves a special mention!

Phenomena

“A science salon hosted by National Geographic Magazine. Phenomena is a  gathering of spirited  science writers who take delight in the new, the strange, the beautiful and awe-inspiring details of our world.” Four amazing writers come together in one place to share new science stories. Special mention about Ed Yong’s weekly ‘I’ve Got Your Missing Links Right Here’ entries.

Scott Hartman’s Skeletal Drawing

Paleontologist and paleoartist, this site is an amazing collection of incredibly rigorous skeletal reconstructions of ancient life (predominantly, but not exclusively, dinosaurs).

Fudge and Poppy

“The blog of a girl who makes it up as she goes along.” Again, not the first time that Alex’s blog has made it onto my pages here, but always worth a visit to see what she’s been crafting recently!

No doubt this selection will either grow or be updated as and when.

(And is it me, or is this post narrower than usual?)

    1. For a moment I thought you were calling me odd. Which I’m fine with, btw. No idea why it got narrower. Will have to see if it happens again.

      I hope you do enjoy the list of … Interesting Things. They’re a bit random. Or highly specialised. I’m not sure which. Both?

      1. Odd is both the highest compliment I pay people and what I call my brother, but I was referring to the magical shrinkage of your text in this case.

        Definitely both. My Pinterest board is rapidly filling with Interesting Things, because you can never know enough random crud.
