Since I haven’t really updated my blogroll since I started eTrilobite.com, I figure I have to update it a bit to justify its existence. I’m adding five new blogs, and well continue to add them five at a time, whenever I remember to do it, until I’ve run out of blogs to add.
Why five? I figure that if I add only a smallish number, the owners of those blogs will get more traffic, and appreciate my adding them more (and possibly buy goods from my store!). Also, it gives me a chance to add a writeup for each blog, which would be tricky if I was adding like 100 blogs at a time.
So, today’s additions:
Ediacaran – http://ediacaran.blogspot.com/
The guy who writes this blog specialize in Cambrian awesomeness, which is awesome, as is he. Look out for the PalaeoPorn posts, they’re hot. Oh yeah, and the author hail’s from Australia. I’m not sure why that’s important, but I’m sure it will interest someone.
Newton’s Ocean – http://newtonsocean.blogspot.com/
This blog isn’t really devoted to paleo, but eTrilobite is an equal opportunity blogroller, so it’s still welcome here. The writer just finished up an epic “30 Day Tour of the World of Science,” posting about something science related for 30 consecutive days. Check it out!
Paleo Errata – http://paleoerrata.blogspot.com/
This is the real deal! It’s written by Jeffery W. Martz, PhD, a self-described “underemployed vertebrate paleontologist.” Martz posts some very interesting science on the blog, though there’s always touch of humor too:
I was originally going to call this blog “Bonerific”, which is a clever contraction of “Vertebrate Bones are Terrific,” until Bill Parker pointed out that there were…complications…with finding the blog on Google. I would never have deliberately used such a filthy double entendre, honestly.
PaleoQuest – http://paleoquestfossilhunter.blogspot.com/
This blog is written by a High-school student in Kentucky. I’ll be honest though, the first thing I noticed when I went there was the absolutely awesome profile picture, which seems to feature the author (“Raptor” Lewis) at the “Kentucky Barn Dance.” After imagining square dancing and other folksy things that one only finds in Kentucky (and possibly Lumby, British Columbia), I moved onto the blog. And lo, the blog is cool! Watch out for the fossil facts!
The Tyrannosaur Chronicles – http://traumador.blogspot.com/
Traumador probably needs no introduction for most of you. Traumador is the smallest Tyrannosaur that was ever born in the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. The epicness of Traumador’s adventures actually broke blogger.com, causing him to have to pay to keep the blog alive! You will not find a better blog written by a Tyrannosaur anywhere on the internet. Period.
