Writing and photos about invertebrates online
- Many of you are probably familiar with the term at least -- blogging. Blogs
are web journals that take many forms and cover many subjects -- from
politics to religion to, dare i say it, bugs.
Some are devoted to specific groups such as dragonflies, spiders, snails and
even squid, but all are interesting for their stories, their reportage, and
often times the excellence of their photography.
Along with blogging has come a type of internet anthology where, on a
regular basis, the best writing on a specific subject is collected for the
benefit of those of like interest. Among these are "The Tangled Bank" of
writing about science, largely evolution; "I and the Bird" of wrting about
birds; and the collective blog "The Nature Writers of Texas" which runs the
gamut of natural history stories from published writers.
Today was posted the inaugural issue of "The Circus of the Spineless" a
monthly collection of web writing and photography about invertebrates. I am
the host this month. If you're interested in topics from detailed scientific
accounts, to essays, to humor, and a round of fine photos, come check us
out. There are over 50 contributors to this edition, likely the largest
first issue of any blog carnival to date.
