Tuesday May 05 2009

As repeatedly promised during the last fortnight or so, here is the revised and expanded list of libertarian bloggers.  Basically it consists of four things: (1) The original list; (2) all the blogs suggested in the comments on that original list; (3) almost all the bloggers listed here (i.e. except for a few that didn’t work any more and one whose inclusion totally baffled me) by Total Politics, that (1) and (2) didn’t already catch; (4) a few others I stumbled upon myself in among checking out other blogs.  Oh, and I recall excluding a few Americans.  This is UK libertarian blogs only.  Even Americans will probably thank me for that.

There are surely a lot more, as a simple trawl through only the blogrolls of all these blogs would surely demonstrate.  But, as with the previous version, the procedure here is to shove up a rough-and-ready version of the thing, to prove that I am still interested and to keep the ball rolling, rather than to wait until perfection is (impossibly) achieved.  Besides which, I hope it never is perfect, because I would hate it if I personally knew about all the libertarian blogs in the UK.  The fact that, already, nobody (certainly nobody of my idle disposition) can easily keep up is cause not for regret but for celebration.

In other words, don’t attach any significance to the fact, if fact it be, that your libertarian blog is “excluded”.  This just means I haven’t heard about it yet, a sad state of affairs which one short comment will change.  At present, I am including all blogs that want to be included, which is creating a few boundary issues, but I will leave those until later.  Probably just by having subdivsions of various kinds.  Later.

So anyway, here it is:

My thanks again for all the comments on version 1.  And thanks in anticipation for any more suggestions.  I couldn’t be bothered to check, one by laborious one, that all the links work.  Please comment also if you find any blunders of that kind.

UPDATE Saturday 9th: I have just done another clutch of additions, and have now dipped my toe into the complicated process of separating us (for I am two) into categories.  So I suppose this posting ought really now to be called “UK libertarian bloggers 2.12” or some such foolishness.  But that might cause linking muddles.  Thanks once again to all the commenters whose suggestions have just been added.

Will there be further versions of this list?  Well, I promise nothing, but I very much hope so.  I can’t have smoked out all of them yet.  An exhaustive search through the blogrolls of the above would surely reveal more, just for starters.  So, the quest continues.  Which means that still further suggestions would continue to be extremely welcome.
