I’m trying to avoid shameless link-whoring, but still trying to promote my website.
How do you go about it?
One way is obvious, to join genuine social networks.
As I’m trying to be science-orientated online, the Nature Blog Network, seemed a logical network to join.
Not to be confused with another different Nature Network, the Nature Blog Network is a connection of Nature/Biology related blogs that have agreed to network. All it involves is hosting a button. NBN gets a person to check your site is okay. Then aproved webistes are ranked and categorized. You can read further in a review by The Canberra Times.
Currently around 440 blogs are involved in the NBN project. The top ten is unsurprising dominated by the unwavering sciborg creation, but three freedom fighters remain amidst the ranks of 5-10 – the anti-cute Ugly Overload, the colourful 10,000 Birds, and Julie Zickefoose.
Kevin reminds me that Deep Sea News has been de-assimilated from the sci-borg nexus. They are part of Discovery Blogs now, which is like totally different lah. Be sure to update feeds and sidebar links, I have now. Thanks Kevin!
Currently I am sitting at no. 88. Whoop! Hottest 100 material.
And no. 2 for the “Mammals” category (I chose this category, because you can only pick one, and I generally post more about mammals and marsupials than any other animal group). The best in Mammals is an Italian blog about bears (google auto translate).
If anyone has any further suggestions of other good, social and non-link-whoring social websites for blogs on science, education, biology, Australiana, youth and writing let me know.
