Alltop is a site that brings together great content from blogs all across the web. But they don't have a page for rural topics, yet.
If I got to pick some blogs for Alltop to create a rural page, I'd recommend:
- Daily Yonder - http://www.dailyyonder.com/
Check their blogroll for a bunch more good stuff - http://www.dailyyonder.com/blog-roll
In fact, their blog roll might as well be Rural.Alltop.com!!
- Center for Rural Affairs' Blog for Rural America - http://www.cfra.org/blog
- The Rural Blog - http://irjci.blogspot.com/
- The Rural Assembly http://www.ruralassembly.org
- USDA National Agriculture Library Rural Information Center http://ric.nal.usda.gov/nal_display/index.php?tax_level=1&info_center=5
- Rural Matters (education) http://blog.ruraledu.org/
- ED Pro Weblog - economic development blog, with a rural feed - http://edpro-weblog.net/news/rss?permafrag=rural&public=true&tag=rural
I started on this because I had the audacity to suggest such a page on Alltop. What else would you recommend?
Check out The Pioneer Woman http://thepioneerwoman.com/
She writes on a variety of subjects and ooh can she cook!
How about real-time water data (river levels and flow volume) from the U.S. Geological Survey (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/rt)?ReplyDelete
Awesome, Chaz! I would never have guessed that you would have great rural sites to share.ReplyDelete
Larry, that's a cool link! I can imagine sooo many uses for that data.ReplyDelete
hehehe, the city boy gets around.ReplyDelete
Check out this blog - about an Irish smallholding http://www.sallygardens.typepad.com/ - I'm a regular reader!ReplyDelete
Lorna, that's an excellent rural blog. Thanks!ReplyDelete
There are many varieties out there; you just have to look for the right one. I think what the other comments said are really good websites.ReplyDelete
