We contribute at this blog because we thinking sharing fundamental research is important. The more other research blogs that exist similar to ours, the more there is out there for the world to encounter. This is definitely a good thing. However, the more blogs that exist, the harder it gets for people to find things in the maze.
With that in mind, I can happily announce that The Trenches of Discovery has co-founded Collective Marvelling, which is a network of blogs written by young researchers. Collective Marvelling will host snippets of every post written at one of the network's blogs, along with a link to the full post. The snippets will be posted at the same time as the full post is written, which makes Collective Marvelling a central place you can check regularly to keep track of all the blogs in the network at once (if you aren't a fan of rss).
There is now a permanent link to Collective Marvelling at the top of this blog. You should go and check it out. And while you're there, check out the other three founding blogs of the network, Blank on the Map, Cross Sections and Lumps 'N' Bumps.
We welcome any ideas for development of the network.
