  1. Well, for what it’s worth, I just went through the whole list and checked out each site. None of them even come close to being as useful as And it lists as #6 when microbiomedigest isn’t listed at all… that’s just bizzare.

    I see a “submit your blog” link. If you didn’t submit yours I will 🙂

    Your blog here is invaluable. Your categorizing alone is extremely helpful.
