A friend sent me an email yesterday with a link to an article on the Top 100 Space and Astronomy Blogs . They said this was how they found my blog. I was shocked.
First, who do I know that isn't on Facebook, Twitter, CVnet or the AAVSO email lists? By now, all those people know where to find Simostronomy.
Second, Simostronomy made the list!
"I'd like to thank my wife and cats for all their support. My variable star friends, like RX Andromeda and KT Perseus for the inspiration. Thank you, Find Schools Online dot com for including me on the list. And lastly to Google Blogger for making it so easy and convenient."
Seriously, there are some really fine blogs on this list, and it is an honor to be included among them. Some of them are my favorite bloggers. I'm happy to say I know many of these authors personally. Many of them participate in the AAVSO Writers Bureau.
So, if it's been a busy week at AAVSO, and I haven't posted much, like this week, here are 99 suggestions for alternative astronomy reading.
