At the time that I started blogging in 2008, bloggers were flooding the greenosphere. Every week, I'd stumble onto another fabulous blog by another excellent writer, and I had to shout to get my little blog noticed. Back then, green bloggers seemed so full of fervor and drive, I felt like I was caught up in a wave of momentum that would inevitably be victorious.
Recently, I was thinking about what was happening in 2007/2008 that made it such a prime time for green blogging. Perhaps it was the release of those classic green works An Inconvenient Truth, The Omnivore's Dilemma, and Animal Vegetable Miracle, which all came out the year before then. Perhaps it was the hopeful political climate of 2008. Perhaps it was the start of the recession. Whatever the reason, the climate was right then.
Most of the bloggers I first discovered aren't around anymore, and lately I feel like I've fallen out of touch with the greenosphere. I've grown quite complacent here in my little sweet spot. Perhaps there's just as much momentum now as there was three years ago, but lately I'm not feeling it.
And the thing is, we need just as many voices now. No, we need more voices! If the green movement is dropping off the public's radar (as it feels like to me), we need more voices speaking louder!
So if you're a green blogger, tell me about your blog. Link to it here in the comments, and I'll check it out. I need to spice up my Google Reader!
