We are growing and multiplying!
We have split into two blog networks with a common cause. And both are adding many new bloggers. The new independent network The Orbit will focus even more on feminism and social justice (as well as activism). Though we will still do a lot of that here too, we also will cover many other interests, and will bring in and showcase more new bloggers from diverse backgrounds. I highly recommend you bookmark or draw feeds for both!
In fact I have a particular recommendation for you. For over a year now, nearly every day I have gone to the FtB front page, which organizes the latest posts on all the blogs on our network by subject category, and I read everything that catches my interest. This has exposed me to more bloggers and more perspectives than if I just read specific blogs everyday. I learn a great deal more, and I have a much more exciting experience! So you might like doing this, too.
Especially because at FtB we have just onboarded over a dozen new bloggers! And we have even more coming over the rest of the year. If you follow our front page, you’ll discover more of them you might like, as well as occasional posts you’ll want to read even from yet others you wouldn’t read regularly. Of course, you should still follow the specific blogs you are most keen on (as I do), since their entries might only appear on the front page briefly, since so many posts are cycling in and out. But following the FtB front page will add to your experience tremendously.
The Orbit, meanwhile, has a fantastic array of bloggers, too, gathered up from Freethought Blogs, Skepchick, and Patheos (and beyond). Currently the blogs that will be located there include those of: Alex Gabriel, Alix Jules, Alyssa Gonzalez, Ani, Ania Bula, Aoife O’Riordan, Ashley F. Miller, Benny Vimes, Brianne Bilyeu, Chris Hall, Dana Hunter, Dori Mooneyham, Greta Christina, Heina Dadabhoy, Jason Thibeault, Luxander Pond, Miri Mogilevsky, Niki M., Sincere Kirabo, Stephanie Zvan, Tony Thompson, and Zinnia Jones. If you want to follow any of them specifically, you can find their blog in the lineup page here. And for their whole network’s daily latest (where you can see all the latest posts from any and all) is here (just not organized by subject).
Freethought Blogs, meanwhile, has onboarded a bunch of really awesome new bloggers. You definitely will want to check a bunch of them out! I’m already loving many of their feeds. Reading them I’ve been getting that warm fuzzy feeling like the cat that got love-touched in Earth Girls Are Easy. The new blogs so far include:
- A Trivial Knot
- Anjuli Pandavar
- Atheism, Music, and More…
- Bi Any Means
- Death to Squirrels
- Fierce Roller
- Geeky Humanist
- Great American Satan
- Incongruous Circumspection
- New Frontier
- The Hispanic Atheist
- Thoughts of Crys
