So there's this thing on Twitter where people recommend other people to 'follow' on Fridays. A couple of people have been nice enough to include me once or twice in their lists, but I use my twitter for very mundane updates, to provide links or just comment on other things, so I really don't know why anyone would want to follow me! Anyway, most of my followers are already following the same people, so I don't bother with the whole "follow Friday" thing.
Instead, today I'll provide you with a list of fantastic blogs by aid/development workers (in case you've not noticed the links I've got over there on the left).
Wanderlust - Tristan is on maternity leave at the moment (*snort*) but he's posting fantastic photos and older memories
Tales from the Hood - J's back off to Haiti
The Road to the Horizon - Peter's also in Haiti
Blood and Milk - Alanna's insights on public health and the aid game generally are always interesting
Good Intentions are not Enough - Saundra has great stuff on improving practice
Rachel's Goma Web Log - Rachel's updates on living and working in DRC are wonderfully written
Roving Bandit - "Probably the best economics blog in South Sudan" (tehehe)
Pyjama Samsara - Vasco's posts are a rare treat
A Humourless Lot - Michael's the man for anything logistics
The Modern Young Lady's Guide to Coups, Contagions & Calamity - Kristen always has entertaining tales to tell from her extensive work travels.
Chris Blattman - Chris is an Assistant Professor at Yale who regularly posts interesting articles and links
Down There - Nate has a great archive of stories and photographs
Though I only know one of these bloggers in "real life" I hope to one day run into a few more of them around the traps.
