Now that concern for the planet is in fashion again, the web is teeming with new green sites and some old standbys are showing new green life. There is a veritable information banquet out there, all the more exciting ,coming as it does, after the long famine of the Bush years. It feels like 1975 all over again to me. I am a very happy camper these days.
I check numerous sites on a regular basis. It’s a movable feast….but there are some old standbys that never fail me and some newbies in cyber-town that are informative, well written and entertaining too. I am particularly partial to blogs with an attitude, and small blogs done by individuals or a small team where the personality and point of view really shines through.
Blogs With Green Personality
