Open question: what are some cool indie blogs (by which I mean, topic-focused blogs not personal blogs)? There are a ton of excellent indie podcasts out there (e.g. literatureandhistory.com is one of my faves). Would like to get a list started of blogs like that.

@ricmac Iā€™m struggling to think of an example of a modern era indie blog, except for my own 2018 effort Blocksplain. Keen to hear other (more successful!) suggestions. Again: topic-focused blog is what I mean.

@ricmac To get things kicked off, are you thinking of something along the lines of Gretchen McCulloch's linguistics blog All Things Linguistics? If this is the sort of thing you're looking for, I can think of several along these lines in various areas of academia, which apparently never left the old blogosphere, if you'd like some additional ones. There are also several multi-author/contributor ones like these as well.

@c Second that re Technorati! And yes thanks, Gretchen's blog is a great example of what I meant.

@c Oh boy, seeing this link led me to: subscribe to an email newsletter, follow the author on Twitter, add an RSS feed to Reeder, and subscribe to a podcast! What a link!

@Miraz That's pretty much the reaction I had when I first came across her as well. I hope you like it all as much as I do.

@c Well, I definitely enjoyed the first podcast I listened to. šŸ‘
