So why bring it up now? Well it turns out that David Orr of Love in the Time of Chasmosaurus is also brilliant, and has gotten permission from Brian to reopen The Boneyard. This is fantastic news for science/paleo/natural history bloggers like myself, and for blog followers who like to read those science/paleo/natural history blogs. I think that, given the number of blogs out there today, the ball will get rolling pretty easily on this one. The content is out there (just look at my blogroll to the right). Now it's time to bring it all together.
If you're a blogger and want to be a part of the new "Boneyard", visit the introductory post over at "LITC" and leave a comment. Offer any assistance you can. For bloggers and non-bloggers alike, help spread the word. Send e-mails, link in your twitter and facebook feeds - whatever you youngsters are doing these days - and let people know what's going on. And check out the original "Boneyard" to get a feel of what David is trying to make happen. Given the quality of the writing I see in the blogs I follow, I know people really put a lot of energy into what they are doing, and take it very seriously. They want to write about science, and they want to communicate what they write to others. That being said, I think bringing back The Boneyard is a great way to collaborate with other bloggers and reach a broader audience at the same time. Let's all make it happen!
