The UK Unitarian blogging community

This blog is five years old. For most of the past five years I've been the only active UK Unitarian blogger. There were one of two that came and went, and Andrew Brown has been publishing his sermons for a long time (not sure I count that as blogging exactly). But now all of a sudden there is a whole blogosphere for the UK Unitarian community. I think a lot of this came from a workshop that Yewtree did at this year's Annual Meetings. That seems to have inspired a lot of people to start blogging.

There is now a blog aggregator here and here to keep up to date. It's good to have a community where I've been shouting into an echoey space for a long time.

Er, you might be missing someone who has been blogging for some time.

Happy fifth blog birthday! I've been reading your blog off and on since the beginning, and it's good to hear that you're finally being joined by some other Unitarian bloggers in the U.K.

Hm. I'm two-and-a-half years old, albeit Anglo-Italian. Still, I've always linked to you!

Happy 5th blogday!

I've been blogging since 2007 at Dance of the elements, which has been Unitarian for most of that time. I started the Stroppy Rabbit in 2006 (but it is mainly about LGBT spirituality and the politics of religion as it relates to LGBT issues).

I am glad you like the blog aggregator, and that my humble workshop seems to have started a few people blogging. It's very exciting.

I'm an avid reader of, and commenter on, Andrew Brown's blog - it's excellent.

Ooh, how slow of me - I just noticed that you added Unitarian Communications and dance of the elements to your blogroll - thank you very much :)
