And then there were 200!

I found another Foreign Service blog today,Mobile Home, which brings our total number of blogs (both active and inactive) by members of the Foreign Service family to 200. And this does not include those on the Future FSO blogroll.

I met Matt Armstrong from Mountainrunner yesterday, and we talked about the placement of blogrolls. He has moved his off of his main page. For his blog, I think that makes sense. But I think my blogroll is one of this blog's most important services. No mantter the slice of FS life that interests you, you can find it here. Officers, specialists and spouses are all here. Even FS pets are here. I think that makes it a good tool for the FS community and a good tool for recruiting.

So my blogroll stays here, and here's to #200!

No, no, NO moving your links from your main page, please!

Keep them here, where they belong!

You work so hard on them... you look for them and post them and keep them organized..

That's a labor of love and you're so good at it... you must keep them on your main page!

Must, must, must.

The end.

I totally agree, your blog roll is part of the front page...no moves, it's perfect the way it is!

Please... it's Matt ;)

I have not gone through your whole blog list--- but I might have to resort to that if you do not respond. Do you have any USAID FSOs listed there? AID does not appear to be as, shall we say happy, about FSO bloggers as State does, so I have a hard time finding people. Ideas? Thanks.

You do have THE most comprehensive list of FS blogs... and are probably the most well known FS blogger out there.

Let's just hope that the dope who writes about the FS blogs next year remarks about it too... :)

Jill, I still think DiploPundit is better known (and a better blogger)...though I did feel left out last year!

And Clare, I do recall at least one USAID blog on the list, but I can't remember which one it is. I'll try to find it.

Jill said...

I will agree that both you and Diplopundit fill a niche... and complement each other quite nicely.

And along those lines still feel that you should have had equal billing.

But bygones... for now.

Thanks for adding my link! Your blog list is a great resource!

Thank you for finding the USAID FSO blog. It is nice (but hard) to find the few out there.
