Bozeman blogs

[UPDATE 12/17: I corrected some blog titles, and found some additional blogs...]

I developed a simplistic scheme to classify Bozeman blogs.

Personal blogs present the blogger's daily life (most blogs are at least somewhat personal).

Adventure blogs detail the blogger's quest to achieve some goal (such as a college degree).

Place blogs cover a particular geographic location (in this case: Bozeman).

Politics blogs discuss politics.

Idea blogs present critical thought about various issues (broader than politics).

Humor blogs present jokes, wit, etc.

Expert blogs cover the blogger's particular area of expertise. They are typically non-personal and do not cover Montana topics.

Here are the blogs in pseudo-random order...

bozeman-mt (place, personal) - "A journal about life in Bozeman, Montana"

Geocaching in Bozeman, Montana (place, adventure)

Bozemania (expert) - about folks with the name Bozeman

Bouncer Blog (personal, place) - "Musings, drunkenness, and inane commentary by 2 bouncers from Bozeman's classiest dance club."

You all should know better (personal)

Rambling Thoughts (personal)

The Best of the Bozeman Chronicle Police Reports (place)

Life in Bozeman Montana (place, personal)

merciless.org (place, adventure)

Rose Colored Cynicism (politics, personal)

A thought over coffee (adventure, place)

Inside Out (place)

The vulgar ravings of a drunken, Irish Catwoman (personal)

The Monkey Cage (humor)

Gothy and the Least (humor)

Lemon Curry? (personal)

A chicken is not pillage (politics, personal)

Revolving Duck (personal, adventure, place)

Speedkill (ideas, adventure)

Easy and tasty recipes (expert)

logistica-design (expert) Logistics systems design

lexblog (expert) - "Building blogs for lawyers."

I write a little blog about food, and since I'm moving to Bozeman from DC next Monday, I suppose it's about to be a 'Bozeman Blog'!

There's some postings on there about places in Bozeman already, but I assume by the time I've settled into town, there'll be some more.

Watch out!
