Blogs – those that people should be reading to learn things from

There are a multitude of awesome bloggers out there these days, to the point that I no longer feel that ye olde blogroll quite cuts it as an adequate way to display such a wide variety of talent. Thus, this post (that may or may not develop into a category of its own) is my endeavour to bring you a selection of the best writers in an easy to find format.

Whilst I am already aware of many blogs that I need to go through adding (not least those listed on the blogroll over at Adopted in the UK), please feel free to leave a comment in order to suggest blogs for inclusion. Any and all blogs that concern adoption issues will be gratefully accepted, however, I reserve the right to exclude blogs I don’t want to promote from this list.

[Themes] Index

I’ve been pondering for some time about how to link so many of the wonderfully written blog posts I come across that share similar themes. I’ve come to the conclusion that the best way to make it easy on both myself for adding the linking, and you, my avid reader, for finding these themed posts, is to make a separate post for each theme. These posts will reside under the highly inventive category of ‘themes’, and this initial explanatory post will serve as the index to the where the rest of the pages live, being updated to include new posts/links as added.
