Announcing the philosophy blogroll!

UPDATE: I think it all should work now...

Taking my cue from Mojoey, I've decided to set up a Philosopher's Blogroll, which I hope will become a comprehensive directory of all active philosophy blogs on the internet. In its current form, I tried to include every currently active blog that has at some time hosted an edition of the Philosopher's Carnival, as well as every active blog on David Chalmers' list but I'm intend to add any blog I find that deals with philosophy at least occasionally, or any blog of that description who's owner drops me an e-mail. Just like Mojoey, I ask that if you send me an e-mail asking to be added, you should also add the blogroll to your blog in one of the three possible forms: full, rolling, and marquee. At the very least, please post a link back to this post so other people can find the thing. I'm going to use the full version here because this is the host site, but you may want to use other formats at your site. The "recently updated" code gives you only the 25 most recently updated blogs, which is nice if you care about recentness of posts. I did let a fair number blogs in that are only occasionally updated, that's the main reason for it, though I still plan to remove anything I find that's been dormant for a month or more. Also, the scrolling version is an easy way to be taken to random blogs on the list. Enjoy!

Please report any problems in e-mail or comments thread.

Finally, I would like to give a *huge* thanks to Mojoey for the idea and responses to my repeated queries trying to figure out how to pull it off. Couldn't have done it without you, many.

Hi Chris

Nice idea. If you want some further suggestions for blogs, David Chalmers has a very comprehensive list here: Philosophical Weblogs

I've got a few more bioethics blogs on my blog roll as well.

Good luck with the project.

Cheers
David

Great idea, but I'm tech-ignorant.
How does it work?

Hi Chris,

Feel free to add mine: To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth.

On an unrelated note, I'm experiencing a weird glitch when I try to load your blog. I see the main page for a moment, then it vanishes and the Firefox loading icon animates indefinitely. It's a JavaScript issue (if I disable JavaScript, the problem vanishes), but I'm not sure why it's happening.

Chris-
Have you/could you add mine? I participate from time to time in the Philosophers' Carnival.
