Exploring the U.Va. Blogosphere
Feeling a little uninspired this Monday morning, I was fishing for material on the UVA Today News Blog’s blog roll. (First impression: We need to do a little purging there.)
Came across some interesting stuff. The Virginia Quarterly Review’s blog has people on the ground in Egypt. The most recent post was from Friday, and mentions Mubrak’s departure from the eyes of a correspondent in Giza. … The blogger “Azorin” at “up close and personal with a UVA student” has been pretty active lately, and seems to have a wide range of interests. … I enjoyed Ashley’s post last week on the Madison House blog about visiting a Crozet-area nonegenarian. … The Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership’s blog is pretty active during the General Assembly. … The Sustainable Dining at U.Va. blog recently took a look at food-related TED talks. … The always-interesting Notes from Peabody blog is seeking to reassure applicants who have nothing to do but wait until the April 1 notification deadline. … High school seniors aren’t the only ones fretting about applications. At the Hoo Stories blog, second-year U.Va. students are anxious about applying to the McIntire School of Commerce and the Curry School of Education, and the Transfermer blog is busy with folks from other schools trying to make their way to Charlottesville. … Even Darden students are feeling some stress about job applications, according to the school’s Career Runnings blog. (For more from Darden students, the school has a whole page of student blogs.) … We’ve kept up pretty well with Conversations with Meredith, the blog of Arts & Sciences Dean Meredith Jung-En Woo. … Public Works, the public service blog over at the Law School, is pretty active, and flies in the face of the stereotype of the money-grubbing lawyer.
As mentioned above, it looks like it might be time to do some purging of inactive blogs. Meanwhile, if you have an active U.Va.-related blog that is NOT on our blog roll, click on comment below and send us your URL.
