Oxford Blog Listing

November 26, 2005

in Internet matters, Oxford, Writing

[Update 17 May 2006] This listing is no longer being updated, as a blog entry. The latest version will be available at this location, from now on.

I thought I should create a centralized listing of Oxford blogs, as a means of keeping track of the community. Blogs that don’t include enough information to categorize, based on a cursory examination, have been filed under ‘other.’ Blogs are added in the order I discover them. These have all been located through Technorati (a blog search engine) or through links on other Oxford blogs. Blogs that haven’t been updated in months will not be added.

People who I’ve met:

  1. Pandora’s Blog
    Run by Kate, who I met at the Oxford Bloggers’ Gathering on October 29, 2005.
  2. Storyteller’s World
    Run by Tony, who I met at the bloggers’ gathering.
  3. Jo’s Journal
    One of the political bloggers I met at the gathering.
  4. Antonia’s Blog
    The other political blogger, a self-described Labour party activist.
  5. in vino veritas
    Run by Lee Jones, who is in the second year of the International Relations M.Phil.
  6. Mike’s Little Red Page
    A socialistic blog, run by Mike.
  7. Consider Phlebas
    Run by Robert Jubb, who I met at the second Oxford bloggers’ gathering on February 21st, 2006.

    Blog of a cool female photography and Mac geek, living in Oxford.

    Run by one of the Wadham College porters.
  3. Feroce
    A blog about books.
  4. Chocolate and Zucchini
    A blog about cooking with very nice pictures.
  5. OxBlog
    The off-the-cuff political commentary of David Adesnik, a 2000 Rhodes Scholar and graduate student in international relations at Oxford currently residing in Washington DC and Patrick Belton, a graduate student in international relations at Oxford.
  6. Cycle & Run in the Sahara Desert for Charity
    Run by Nicolas Bertrand, the title basically says it all.

    Blog run by Rachel, student at Christ Church.

    The title basically says it all.

Oh, and there’s always my blog: a sibilant intake of breath.

Cool. I just wish my name was spelled correctly.

Ben November 27, 2005 at 8:16 pm

Thanks for the mention. Also linked through mine you can find Rob Jubb. He’s not technically an Oxford student atm, but he did PPE and MPhil with me. And Chris Brooke is a Politics tutor, not a student…

Another listing of blogs, many of them in Oxford.

Chris Brooke November 29, 2005 at 3:38 pm

After the next bloggers’ gathering, I will update this list. The new one should definitely include this site.

Red Mist February 8, 2006 at 2:46 pm

There’s also me (Red Mist). But be warned. I’m a rightist death beast.

Ben February 22, 2006 at 12:18 am

Yes, you’ll have to update this now; though I still don’t get to be someone you’ve met…

Andy February 22, 2006 at 4:58 pm

Hi Milan,

This is Andy, was nice to meet you yesterday. My blog is at http://andy-the-sayer.livejournal.com/ though it sucks a bit. :)

How to describe me? Another Trinity student, I’d say…

Milan March 5, 2006 at 5:46 pm

Since editing long ordered lists is a pain, I think I will carry on with only updating this list after bloggers’ gatherings.

Milan May 3, 2006 at 1:30 pm

This listing is now part of the static content of the WordPress blog: available here.
