Bloggers for positive global change

Blogfish gets tagged, so I'm spreading the tag. I received the Bloggers for Positive Global Change award. Now I'm supposed to nominate 5 more and spread the tag. How far will this go? Who knows, but hey it's blogfun.

Here are my tagged blogs, all people blogging for the good of the world:

1. Shifting baselines--don't forget the good old days in the ocean.

2. Chews Wise--food in balance with life.

3. Malaria, Bedbugs, Sea Lice, and Sunsets--oceans and more.

4. The Natural Patriot--it's righteous to save the world.

5. J--that sea turtle guy.


How this works for those tagged:

Write a post with links to up to 5 blogs that you think are trying to change the world in a positive way.

Leave a comment or message for the bloggers you've tagged, so they know they're now part of the meme.

Optional: Proudly display the "Bloggers for Positive Global Change" award badge.

Hello Mark,
I just read that Ocean Conservancy is looking for a few communications people (via idealist.org).
Are you still the only one blogging?
I have not visited the "main site" to check:)
Do you think they would consider experimenting more with blogs and -why not- podcasts or are you still all by yourself?
I still think a podcast would be great (especially since for now EcoTalk is closed).
The fish cannot talk so if you don't I doubt who will...

This post is pleasing but I'm afraid I'm hopeless at continuing the thread (the initiator should have made requisite that the blogs listed could continue the thread, e.g., were clued in with the blogosphere). You've covered the blogs I read!

Hi Mark. Thanks for the link. I just last night got back from two weeks away without internet connection and found 2348 spam comments on the Natural Patriot, so many that it locked up my computer when I tried to view the list to delete them. In the long monotonous process of getting rid of them, I accidentally deleted ALL comments to the Natural Patriot made after about 1 March. Ouch . . .

If anyone can direct me to a more effective spam-comment filter for Word Press I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks Mark. I've passed the torch to five other righteous bloggers. BTW, can you direct us to where this phenomenon/award/chain letter came from?

P.S. I have also wiped out the spam comment problem mentioned above by installing word verification like what you've got here.
