Tim Worstall is compiling a book entitled “2005: Blogged: Dispatches from the Blogosphere”. It will be a roundup of the best of British blogging over the last year, so from November 2004 until now.
He’s asked me whether there are any religious blogs who should be considered for inclusion. Good writing is what is required here, and writing which will be of interest to the wider population rather than just other like-minded people. I’ve had a think and although one or two names come to mind, its not proving particularly straightforward to know who to suggest. I’m sure there must be blogs out there I haven’t thought of, but I could do with some help.
Thinking about Christian blogs (ie bloggers who are Christians) in particular it seems to me we do well at writing material of interest to other Christians, but I’m not sure that a huge amount of what we write is of wider interest. I don’t know – I’d like to be proved wrong on this.
Tim needs to hear back on this very soon, ie today or tomorrow. Remember that it needs to be good writing that has been blogged over the last year, though he is especially interested in material in the November 04-February 05 timescale. I’ll pass on the best of the suggestions left here in the comments or e-mailed to me. Thanks in advance for any contributions. (Oh, about comments, if you leave any links in the comments they’ll be moderated so won’t appear instantly, but they will appear within a few hours.)
The Amazon page for the book is here in case you’d like to pre-order your copy. Actually, wait until I’ve signed up for an affiliate account so that I can eat in November.
Update: Just to emphasise this is a compilation of contributions from UK bloggers.
