Geographers that blog (relatively frequently)

I’ve had the habit of reading blogs since blogs became ‘a thing’, back in the early noughties (for me anyway), and have moved through different RSS readers, desktop versions then web services – from NetNewsWire to dear old Bloglines introduced to me by Howard Rheingold, and more recently Netvibes… but I’ve allowed the list of sites I follow to atrophy and wither, with many no longer active and some no longer online.

I decided to do what all lazy Twitter users do and ask ‘which geographers should I read?‘ and received some helpful responses. I am therefore sharing the beginnings of a list that I hope others may help add to by leaving suggestions in the comments below…

My aim here is to compile a list of regular bloggers who blog about vaguely human geographical things, so here’s my provisional list – there must be more(!):

  1. No probs, glad you think it worthwhile – the point of the media is to share so that’s what I’m trying to do… 😉
