Blog Love, Dish Prep

Some home news. I've added a blogroll - after seven years of negligence, and called it "Blog Love". And I have a designated assistant, Jessie Roberts - after seven years of solo-flying. It's a new world.

When I started the Dish during the Clinton presidency (it seems like another universe now, doesn't it?), there were only a handful of blogs covering the stuff I was interested in. Now there are hundreds and hundreds of good ones, and it's humanly impossible for one person to keep track of them all. Mercifully, the Atlantic (cue suck-up sound) allowed me to bring interns into the mix, just one example of MSM-bloggy synergy. Jessie is my first alumna of the first batch, and she's staying to help me stay on top of things. If you've noticed an uptick in both the volume and diversity of my links, she and her erstwhile colleagues are responsible for tipping me off. The Dish now routinely looks at science blogs, literary blogs, culture blogs, religion blogs, art-blogs, and any new blogs that spring up and could do with wider exposure. I still browse everywhere and rely also on your tips and links. But I now have a permanent research assistant for back-up. A shout-out to Jessie, and my first team of Dish-preppers, Whitney, Eric, Zoe, and Brooke, who just left for the wider world. A new group began this week. And check out all the blogs in the "Blog Love" list. We worked hard and long on filtering out the blogosphere to highlight our favorite sites. If you're new to blogging, and want to learn more about what's out there, it's a great place to start.
