I’ve been in work and personal overload lately, and I apologize for not annoying people here nearly as frequently as I’d like. The work overload, at least, will likely lift soon. In the meantime, I wanted to pass something along about an opportunity for biodiversity-oriented bloggers. It’s below the fold. For you non-fold-looking-under Hordelings, here are some cuddly cacti:
Coyot.es Network is inviting women and bloggers of color to check us out and consider joining us. We’ve put out a quiet call last week asking for new bloggers interested in joining the Network, and will have some announcements on that front soon. But we’re starting to drift a little from the (relative) gender and ethnic diversity with which we started out, and that reminds us we need to pay attention to targeted recruiting to make sure we offer as full a range of voices as possible.
In other words, we want to maximize the gender, racial-ethnic, and geographical diversity among our bloggers. Might you or someone you know be a part of that work? Check us out and see if you think we might be a good fit.
Who would you be joining? In alphabetical order by blog:
- Basin and Range Watch, advocating for the desert’s ecosystems;
- Coyote Crossing, aka yours truly;
- Dispersal Range, by the wonderfully lyrical science essayist Meera Lee Sethi
- The ‘Not Essential’ List, by Shaun G., reporting from the urban East Coast;
- Reconciliation Ecology, ably piloted by Fresno State biologist Madhusudan Katti;
- Slow Water Movement, in which Vermonter Charlie Hohn talks about our society’s relationship with water, and;
- Toad In The Hole, a.k.a. Auntie Ron Sullivan’s joint. Comment there and ask her for photos of chikkins.
