Nothing gets me more excited these days than a well put together EVE blog. Seriously! OK, maybe DUST 514 and Ambulation/Walking in Station/Incarna (or whatever they'll be calling it next) does a bit more. But there's something about getting a group of EVE Bloggers together, to work on their blogs, comment on each others articles and participate in interesting, and sometimes volatile arguments. It was the idea behind the EVE Blog Pack when I first had the idea way back in June of last year, and it still is.
With the recent explosion of new EVE blogs, it was time to clean up the pack, remove the outdated blogs and welcome a few new members. When I mentioned my desire to do so in mid-August, I expected a good turnout, but nothing like I received. Picking and choosing those blogs that made it in the pack, and those who did not, was a lot harder than I thought it would be.
I've realized that we've got some goddam good writers in the EVE Blogging Community, and the Pack is just the tip of the iceberg. As such, I'd like to welcome the 19 blogs below to the Pack (see the full listing of the EVE Blog Pack members). These new members are now part of an elite team of EVE Bloggers, and have an opportunity to be in the spotlight of our little corner of the Intertubes. Lets hope they use this opportunity wisely, and remember the responsibilities that come with the membership.
