Oxford blogs

Please note: I no longer live in Oxford and no longer update this list, except when people contact me. As such, it may include some blogs that are no longer active and it may exclude important new blogs. To suggest changes contact me.

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, and should eventually be removed if present.

People who I’ve met:

  1. Storyteller’s World
    Run by Tony Price, a priest from Oxford who I met at the first bloggers’ gathering.
  2. Antonia’s Blog
    This blog is run by Antonia Bance, Labour Party member and city counsellor in Oxford.

Made some changes:

1) Moved ‘Badaude’ into the General section, as requested.

2) Fixed the link to the first gathering, which was in pre-WordPress format.

3) Fixed a dead link to Tony Price’s bio.

4) Fixed a link to Taylor Owen’s bio. (People really should use stable URLs for these!)

Nice little blog, I came across this site looking for a UK Oxford blog, reading through this I take it you live in Canada. I did not realise there was another Oxford, apart from the famous University town.

Milan December 7, 2009 at 8:27 am

I attended the University of Oxford between 2005 and 2007. I started this blog to document that time, but it continued afterward.

Bodleian Blurts October 9, 2010 at 4:32 pm

Hi there!

We’re a start-up blog of recent Oxford University graduate (MCR) alumni. Bodleian Blurts is a collaboration of recent alumni thesis abstracts, random musings, and other impulsive uttering. It’s our attempt to re-create an evening-in-the-MCR, with various perspectives, interests, and expertise. We’re a mishmash of studies, from a schizophrenia anthropologist, a classical archaeologist, a medievalist, a financial mathematician, and a Internet scholar. Our list of contributors grows daily! We hope you’re interested in our view into the academic whirlwind of the Oxford MCR!

To Duke Humfrey’s and all that is dusty, musty, and glorious!

hi Milan – just dropped by your list of Oxford blogs, in memory of old times…

I think BSAG isn’t resident in Oxford any more – but she still writes a mean blog, when she gets around to it.
