We've collected a list of blogs that have some notable weight of Texana by content - mostly in historical or literary terms. As issued in August 2008 the list is about 100 titles. The annotated, illustrated list was issued as a mono-thematic August issue of the Monthly. Suggest a blog is you like. Request an email copy of the list if you like. It's now posted separately as http://texasblognotes.blogspot.com and occasionally I add new entries.
