    Just getting started with my blog but I reckon there’ll be stuff in there to interest your readers so it would be lovely if you could add me to your blogroll!

    I’m a lady planetary geologist, gearing up to start my PhD on Mercury later this year.

    One Writer’s Mind –

    and my twitter address to the list o scientists

    Thanks muchly!

    Could you please add my blog to the blogroll? I am a writer and astronomy graduate student. My blog is titled “Laurel’s Pluto Blog” and has been advocating the planetary status of Pluto and all dwarf planets under a geophysical planet definition since September 2006.

    Thanks for adding Bad Mom, Good Mom to your blogroll.

    You may want to add Wandering Scientist in the biological sciences section.

    I work at the intersection of geoscience and geoinformatics. Informatics is a rapidly growing field. It would be great if you could add an informatics section to let young women know about the research and job opportunities there.

    My blog is not a science blog (yet), but I highly recommend Dr. Isis from

    She blogs on medical research, ethics, and shoes. She is a wicked hot scientist

    I’ve just started a new blog after getting married last month. There are only two posts on their so far, but I’ll try to write about once a month or so.

    Hi everybody,

    We are an international team preparing to join the Google Lunar X Prize and it would be great to have some women planetary scientists onboard. As you may know there is a bonus prize for the team with most diversity including gender diversity!

    Please so please get in touch if you are interested to help us out

    Nice blog list! There’s a number of blogs here I’m not familiar with; I’m looking forward to discovering some new ones!

    Hi there
    I run a site Grants For Small Business ( ).
    I believe it would be beneficial for both of us if we do blogroll link exchange.
    Do let me know if you wish to go ahead and I will add your site to my Blogroll and then you

    can add me later.

    I just saw that you have my blog Raising Smart Girls on here (thanks!). I just wanted you to know I’m changing the blog hosting to

    Soon I’m going to be deleting the blogspot blog, but I wanted a few people to know before I did that.

    Sarah, of course! I’ll add InterplanetSarah to the list on the front page too. I have a lot of sorting to do on this list, btw, but it’s coming along… who else should be added?
