  2. Honored to be here Bob, just re-twitted, what a great idea to compile all the great thoughts on yoga that happen during the week :-)

    I like this idea, Bob, but I have a suggestion to offer up. As someone who subscribes to Elephant via RSS feed, I read most all the yoga articles already and these weekly sum-ups are somewhat repetitive. I think it would be really neat if you perhaps included a few of your favorite yoga-related posts from around the blogosphere as well, as I know you do a lot of reading and can tell you have great taste in articles! I love what you're doing as the new Yoga Editor, and I look forward to reading future posts. :)

    • Hi, Chelsea. I'm so impressed that you read most of the articles already. You and I may be the only ones! There are 40-50 Yoga articles alone each week.

      I like your idea very much, but I'm not able to spend nearly as much time on other blogs as I used to. This new job is exhilarating but very time-consuming if I do it right. So I'm not sure I'd be much good at picking out other blogs.

      Plus, it seems that the vast majority of people have trouble keeping up, so I'm giving priority to organizing everything for better access, with the Facebook page and top ten lists. Right now I'm working on a top 25 countdown for best blogs of 2010.

      Thanks very much for writing and for reading Elephant. I do like your idea and I do want Elephant to be a place to get information on other blogs. So I will consider it again when I get further down the road.

      Here's an idea in the meantime. Why don't you consider writing an article about your favorites, ala Roseanne's Top 15 Yoga Blogs of 2010?

    Thanks for your response, Bob. Yes, I'm afraid I really do read just about all of them… though if the quality of the writing is too poor, I often just skim or stop reading. My honest opinion is that Elephant offers some of the greatest and uh… not-the-greatest… writing in yoga in the blogosphere. I love that Elephant provides a forum where I can get exposure to such a diversity of opinions, but I must admit sometimes I wish the writers would take the time to have an outside reader scan their post for run-on sentences and typos. I'm not one to judge though. As long as I can follow the flow of ideas, I'm a happy camper. Like you, I think, I have an insatiable hunger for the wisdom and knowledge hidden in the teachings of these ancient traditions. I read because it feeds my soul.

    I'll give your suggestion to write a sum-up post myself some thought, though I don't know that I have the credentials to be ranking the best yoga writing of the year. :) I write a monthly column for a relatively new yoga-oriented blog (www.yogamodern.com) that keeps me pretty busy, but if the inspiration strikes I'll give it a whirl.

    • Hi, Chelsea. Your writing is very impressive, and so is Yoga Modern. I'll spend some more time there tomorrow. Great site.

      You don't have to rank the blogs, just talk about why you like them. That's why I used the term "your favorites" rather than "best of the year."

      I don't know if you are under exclusive contract with Yoga Modern, but I would be pleased to publish your articles on Elephant, too. That one I just read about science and spirituality is terrific.

      Thanks for your interest.

      (If you have a second, please send me a FB message when you see an egregious error in a blog and I'll correct it. That will definitely get better over time.)
