Biblioblogging ::

I’d like to take up Eric’s plea for more bibliobloggers. He makes a good statement of what, for me too, are the main reasons to blog and read other bibliobloggers.

(Personalities are different, so I’d add to his list that blogging is a more personal form of communication, and I get to feel I know the bloggers I read, more than I do the author of a scholarly article. Even those I’ve not met face-to-face - like Eric himself. Bloggers become a sort of friends.)

I agree we could use more biblical studies bloggers, though I wonder about increasing the number of blogs. I already have a feed-full of blogs each morning. By the time I add a few “emergents”, some distance education people, a handful of open scholarship blogs, as well as a few quirky people I found by accident it risks being overwhelming.

I also find that I do not always have things to say – but the blogsphere abhors a vacuum... So I dream of a Hebrew Bible blog, then I could just blog occasionally in that focused way, but still run SansBlogue as something nearer Akma’s online diary…

There are however very few group blogs. We are trying to explore this for the colloquium (on virtual theology) I am running in February. Once I have persuaded other participants to write, I’ll publish the URL. The experience so far suggests that there is a big hurdle to get non-bloggers started…
