A few weeks ago, Lori from Green Gigs (a fabulously resourceful, but no longer active green jobs blog) honored us with a Kreativ Blogger award. Being named a Kreativ Blogger is quite an honor, but it comes with a catch: we have to pass the award on to 7 deserving blogs, comment at each blog to notify them of the award and, on top of that, we have to list 7 things we like. Geeesh! Choosing just 7 Kreativ Bloggers was a challenge, but here goes…
Deep Sea News – someone’s gotta write about the weirdness that abounds in the deep sea (did you know male chimeras have a retractable sexual organ on their forehead?) and these guys do a great job!
Malaria, Sea Lice, Bed Bugs and Sunsets – Promoting, in his words, “the vast left-wing conspiracy and queer, godless agenda” this coral reef scientist does a great job of being a champion for the deep.
Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted) – She’s a scientist, a naturalist, a freelance writer and, last but not least, a funny person. So of course we like her stuff. She also started the wonderfully awesome Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the Public) blog carnival.
Observations of a Nerd – another scientist with a passion for making science interesting and understandable to the public. Obviously, we’re biased in our adoration of blogs that share our mission, but we don’t see a problem with that.
Lab Rat -We confess that we’re biased towards megafauna here at Mauka to Makai, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care about the little stuff. Lab Rat blogs makes little things—like bacteria that use antibiotics for food—cool.
Ange’s Story -the blog of a down-to-earth world-class triathlete and mother of 3… umm, inspirational would be an understatement
White Hot Truth -inspiration, motivation and a regular reminder that we’re all rockstars. Sure, sometimes it’s a little woo, but some days a hit of woo is just what you need.
And here are 7 things we like. Obviously, there are so many more, but we tried to keep it professional (ish):
-Great green ideas
-Funny people (as in people who make us laugh, not the movie)
-Food (yes, we believe that food and chocolate each deserve a spot on this list)
