After the despair and cyber-soul-searching caused by the closing of Pub Sociology, the fortunes of sociology blogging have brightened up:
1. Kim and Drek have been doing some guest posting over on Marginal Utility, reversing the usual pattern where economists invade sociologists turf.
2. Mike Shanahan is now blogging from North Carolina, opening up a much needed Southern Front in the cause of increasing the presence of blogs in the discipline. Mike increases the count of uncloseted-tenured-sociology-professors-who-blog-regularly to, what, three? (me, Mike, Chris)
3. j autumn's blog is now occasionally posting, so she's off my "Seemingly Fallen Travelers" sidebar blog graveyard list.
In a less happy development, someone appears to have started a carnal sociology blog, but doesn't appear to be going to keep with it. Which is too bad, as I would have liked the opportunity to read more about carnal sociology in a bloggerly format.
