101 geoblogs

German blogger has compiled a list of 101 geoblogs. I'm reposting them here to help spread the word. There are a lot of talented people sharing fascinating and well-written ideas and news out there. The role of geoblogging is still in its formative stage. It's exciting to see how quickly it's growing and diversifying. Thanks to Callan Bentley at NOVA Geoblog for spotting this list.

  1. Wow. That's quite a list by this geoberg guy. I appreciate the hardwork that went into this one.

    I guess he has worked or probably still working for some Oil and Gas company. That is the sector when people get to 'do geology' and learn the most.
