space cadets

I belong to a couple of blogrolls, such as the Red Ensign Brigade, LLP, and others. One thing that I would like to see is a similar blogroll of all the space bloggers. We could even have the Carnival of the Space Cadets or something like that.

So, if you have a space blog and are interested in getting into such a blog roll, send me an email at, and I'll add you to the list. Make sure your email includes the name of your blog and the blog URL, and please put Space Blogroll in the subject line.

To display the Space Blogroll on your site, add the following script to your blog template (updated December 28, 2010):

To display the Space Blogs logo (158x158 pixels) above, include the following in your template:

Now, I already have a bunch of space blogs on my blogroll; if you find your blog already on the space blogroll, you don't have to do anything, but it sure would be nice if you would include the blogroll on your page.

If anyone comes up with a better button, then send me a link and I will put the code here on this post. The existing button points back to this post so anyone who wants to join the space blogroll only has to click on the button to find out what it is all about and how to get on board.

For instance, this button (200x164) was put together by Sector 4 Command. Here's the code for his version of the button:

Afterthought: If you find that your blogrolls are getting very lengthy and want to see how I do the scrolling blogrolls in the sidebar, you can find the necessary code for that in the first text box above, all the stuff in the div statement.

yet more, added January 11,2011: The Space Blogroll by itself might be nice to have, but you may also be interested in the latest blog feeds or space news feeds, as I have in my current right sidebar. The code for those is as follows.

Will try and get round to it.

Love the idea of the space carnival, too, and would happily host.

I am adding this now. If it is ok, I will probably pick my own image. But I will obviously keep the link the same so that others can join with a click.
