Weekly Geeks 2009.01: Blog Love!

by Kim on January 13, 2009 · 14 comments

Weekly Geeks was the first blogging community activity I joined, so I’m excited to see it back.  I’ve been helping out with some of the behind-the-scenes admin work to get things going again (mostly just maintaining the e-mail and that sort of thing), but I’m happy to be a part of it.

This week’s activity is to write about some of our favorite blogs, sharing what it is about these blogs that inspires, educates, or just makes us laugh.  I decided to write about some of my favorite blogs written by college or graduate school students.  I tend to forget which blogs are student blogs, so I hope that I didn’t miss any!

Fyryfly at Fyrefly’s Book Blog Fyrefly is a graduate student in biology.  She reads a whole mix of stuff, but we’ve been going back and forth lately with reviews for the Fables comic book series by Bill Willingham.  She also does an amazing job categorizing her books and reviews; I aspire to be that organized.

Lu at Regular Rumination I came across Lu’s blog because of the Blog Improvement Project.  She’s a Spanish major who will graduate in May, and then says she wants to get her Masters in Education.  Lu is a new blogger, but I’m excited to read more because her 2007 and 2008 book lists have a ton of books I have read or want to read.

Ben at Flying the Stone Kite Ben and I went to undergrad together, so I like keeping caught up on his blog.  Ben is a gifted writer, and I enjoy his short musings and observations about life.  He also wrote an awesome guest post for me about Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.

Christine at She Reads Books I found Christine’s blog when we were paired up for a Weekly Geeks assignment.  Even though she’s a full-time college student (majoring in English), she still finds time to read a ton of books.

Jeff at The Azure Lion Inn Jeff describes himself as a “graduate student, designer, and reader” who reads mostly mysteries, along with fiction, plays, and other historical books.  Jeff doesn’t have a ton of posts yet, but I hope there will be more soon!

Do you know any other good blogs written by students that I don’t know about?

UPDATE: Here are a few other student bloggers that I missed earlier. Silly me, these guys are all in my blogroll!
