Breaking out Orthodox blogs as a separate page (since it has gotten so large)
==Blogs==
Below is an incomplete list of sites that offer '''individual''' opinions and thoughts on Orthodoxy. Many of the following individuals have formed something of an intertextual community, and you are likely to find them linking to many other Orthodox sites or blogs, and many interesting non-Orthodox ones as well. However, keep in mind that the authors do not speak for the Church, and may have opinions different from the opinions of other Orthodox Christians.
