Association of Tea Bloggers

I am happy to announce that this blog has recently been accepted into the Association of Tea Bloggers. I have known about this association for quite some time and have enjoyed reading a number of its member blogs. This association serves multiple purposes. It is useful on its own as a somewhat selective list, but it also has forums and other member-only resources, as well as other public features such as an aggregated feed for all member blogs (although who could keep up with reading that much, I can hardly imagine!)

I think it's great, and ultimately empowering, when bloggers interact with each other, and I'm glad to be able to participate in another organization and community that facilitates this sort of interaction.

I would encourage people who are already active tea bloggers to at least check out the website of the Association of Tea Bloggers; even if you have no interest in joining, the website is a good resource and can help you to discover and connect with active tea bloggers.

Another List of Tea Bloggers:

Also of interest to people who want to network and connect with tea bloggers is RateTea's twitter list of tea bloggers, which I maintain. This list currently contains 71 twitter accounts of tea bloggers, some more active than others. If anyone would like to be included on this list and is not already on it, just sent an @-message to RateTea.
