  • Blogcode recommends

    Tim Ireland of Bloggerheads has produced an interesting new blog recommendation tool at For every blog entered it will produce a list of similar sites. The criteria don’t include politics, so you might find an ‘evil twin.’ Here are the recommendations for the Green Ribbon:

  • The Green Ribbon review of the year

  • Hobson choice

    I have been looking for a decent tagline for the Green Ribbon for some time now, and I’m still not sure I’ve found one. Until I can come up with something that expresses the same idea a bit more snappily, I’ve decided to use the above quote from John A Hobson, an English liberal thinker…
