Blogs. Blogging has become a part of everyday life. Whether hosting an online journal, a research project, a work in progress or an autobiography, people are going live with their thoughts and ideas.  We would like to take this opportunity to highlight some blogs hosted by graduates, faculty, and staff members of the College.  If there is a blog you would like to see listed here, please feel free to contact Centre's alumni office.

Punctuated Life

Life is about the moments that are simple: a necklace that catches your eye, a beautifully-crafted photograph, or even a sunny day. This blog is my record of these moments in the form of style, design, fashion, photography, and real life stories!

Where Abouts In Danville

This blog is in response to Mark Mallman's travel-blog. People are always interested in hearing about people's travels abroad. These are my accounts of 'traveling' in small-town America.

John Whitehead 1985
Environmental Economics 

Adapted from “Top 10 Environmental Economics Blogs”: Undoubtedly the “daddy” of environmental economics blogs. This site has an excellent balance of, post frequency, information content, personality, irreverence, humour and pointless stuff. There is a good banter between Tim Haab and John Whitehead and any blog that has so many alcohol related posts has to be a winner. By telling it as it is they give some excellent insights into academic life with their conference and crash and burn journal experiences (even though they are respected and well published academics).

Don Lawler 1983
Restless Rocks

A blog that will describe the day to day activities of a professional stone sculptor, living and working in a remote wooded area of Kentucky. This weekly pictorial diary is intended as a step-by-step guide for how to create monumental stone sculptures. It is also meant to be entertaining, as well as informative.
