Is it spring?

For some, spring is marked by the Snowdrops arriving. For others it's a change in the temperature  towards warmer times of the summer ahead. However, I have spotted a different spring indicator altogether. Which is the sudden boost in the amount of canal blogging that's going on.

There are a number of canal boating stalwarts, who can be found posting the odd topic on their blogs throughout the colder months of the year. However, a large number of canal blogger, like the Hedgehog go into hibernation during the winter months. With only the odd foray on their blog on the rare mild day. However, like snowdrops the blogger are beginning to show signs of life and return to their blogs with the arrival of spring. I tend to follow a number of what I find are interesting blogs, giving each a cursory once-over.

My list of followed blogs is now a hive of activity and rather than the odd hour two or three times a week. I now have to take an hour every day and I am always behind and playing catch-up. I also like to pass comment on other blogs from time to time, even if it is only to show the blogger encouragement and that the blog is not just an unread diary.

If you look down the left hand side of this page, you will find a list of  the top 25 canal blogger's. You can click on a boat name to go and view their weblogs. The list of blogs is sorted by those making the most recent posting.

On the right hand side of the page is where I keep a few other lists which are somewhat hidden away.  Look inside, Information pages - Infrequent Updates, Information pages - Miscellaneous Sites,  and Information pages - Historic Boats. Some of the blogs are now dead or long dormant and therefore are not being updated anymore. However they are still worth a read and contain a wealth of information.
