Blog of the Week : 08/19 - 08/25 2012

The Blog of the Week for August 19th to the 25th, 2012 is 'I code by the sea'; a blog from the mind of Jamie Goodyear, who is a software developer in St. John's. Jamie shares his experiences as an open source developer living in the province via this blog, which I have to mention, has a lovely simple title I really like... Especially when you pair it with a 2nd blog of his entitled 'I also make Cookies'.

It's not often that I feature two blogs in one blog of the week but, with this tandem of blogs, I had to make an exception. Jamie has two great, yet vastly different blogs here, which he does tie nicely together with the thought, "Recipes are just another kind of coding.". Makes sense to me. These are both great additions to the community here folks, so please check them out!

Summer Blog Additions

Those who have been enjoying the Blog of the Week selections over the past couple of months may have noticed that none were selected this past Sunday. The reason being is that I decided to focus attentions this week to new blog additions. With so many email requests having built up, this is in fact long overdue. In a blog community as large as this one currently is, it's hard to imagine there are more blogs out there that haven't been listed yet... but there are. The 42 new additions in this update prove that, and this after a year of already heavy adding. I'm quite impressed.

As always, the blogs have been listed in all the applicable rolls on this main hub (the New Additions roll and their applicable mini roll) and also listed on the main roll of their applicable individual category page.

So I now leave it to you, the visitor, to continue doing just that; go visiting further. The newbies are listed below!

Blog of the Week : 08/05 - 08/11 2012

The Blog of the Week for August 5th to the 11th, 2012 is 'Twig'; a blog brought to us by the English Language Research Centre at Memorial University, which discusses the English language in our great province. Inspired by the Dictionary of Newfoundland and Labrador, blog creator Jenny Higgins sets out to explore the vocabulary of NL and examine the research that went into the creation of the internationally acclaimed dictionary; one the most well known publications to come out of the province. The blog appears to have it's own community of people contributing to it's success, and it's certainly an incredible addition to the broader blog community here, so please take some time to check it out. It will surely not disappoint!
