Seeking new Oxford bloggers

October 3, 2006

in Geek stuff, Internet matters, Oxford, Writing

Oxford is positively laden with newly arriving students. At least some of them must be bloggers. If you are among them, please let a comment with a link back to your site (if you want it added to my listing of Oxford blogs). Likewise, if anyone has found such a fresher blog, please leave a comment that links back to it.

I will not link blogs immediately. Rather, I will wait to see that they:

  1. have at least some real content
  2. have been around for at least a few weeks

Otherwise, maintaining the list would take far too long, and too many items in it would be without much value.

All Oxford bloggers should remember that the fourth OxBloggers gathering is happening on Wednesday of 4th week, November 1st.

PS. Making a link in a blog comment is easy. Just use the following format, replacing the square brackets with pointy ones (the ones that look like this shape ^ turned on either side):

[a href="http://www.thesiteyouarelinking.com"]the text you want for the link[/a]

That will make a string of blue text that says: “the text you want for the link.” When clicked, it will take the browser to www.thesiteyouarelinking.com. Every bit of the formatting is important, including the quotation marks, so be careful.

Report a typo or inaccuracy

JD,

Thanks for the link. A slick-looking blog with some interesting looking posts.

…a hand reaches from the sky and, with a vermillion flash, it is done.

Ben,

Those links don’t seem to work – probably because of a quotation mark issue. I put a note in the bug thread for Milan to fix them.

Here is a MySpace page belonging to Kate Barush, a student at Wadham.
