Well, the Chronicle has just put up a list of links to academic blogs. Some are familiar, others I haven't seen before. And some of my favorites aren't yet on the list.

Not sure how I feel about this. Because it's in the Chronicle, even if only the online version, it's somehow different than the list of favorites many people have on their own blogs. Too much like a canon.

Though, research suggests that a very very small percentage of internet users read blogs, and an even smaller percentage write them.

And I came to the world of blogs because I read this article, which mentioned Barely Tenured.

So maybe this will bring other interesting folks to the table. That's a good thing. So why am I ambivalent?
