Did you know there are at least 85 blogs on neuro/psych topics written by individuals (or small groups) outside of the blog network model? And that you can follow a feed of these blogs in several ways?
Independent Neuroblogs, a combined aggregate feed for non-network Neuroscience Blogs, started on FriendFeed in response to the proliferation (and increasing clout) of blog networks after the implosion of ScienceBlogs in 2010. The infamous PepsiGate scandal caused an exodus of bloggers from the once-mighty network (which still exists, by the way). Many bloggers went to other networks, including those hosted by Discover, Wired, Guardian, PLOS, and eventually Scientific American, or else started their own network, most prominently at Scientopia.
At around the same time, a new aggregator at scienceblogging.org wanted to become "Your one-stop shop for the most recent posts from science blog networks." This left those of us who were not part of blog networks, whether by choice or obscurity or quirkiness, out in the cold (or rather in the neuroghetto). Hence, the Indie Neuroblogs list was formed, which you can also follow on Twitter @neuroghetto or through its RSS feed. This group was then included on scienceblogging.org under the banner of Aggregators and Combined Feeds of Independent Bloggers.
The comprehensive ScienceSeeker site has since superseded scienceblogging.org. There you can select posts on Psychology and Neuroscience, or follow their respective feeds.
Of course, there are many other blog networks out there that include bloggers on psych/neuro topics, such as Big Think, Field of Science, Forbes, Lab Spaces,1 Nature Blogs, PsychCentral, Psychology Today, Occam’s Typewriter, Science 2.0, and others. And many authors write multiple blogs, some on networks and some independently.
What initially started as a group of 38 blogs in September 2010 has grown to a list of
The Thoughtful Vegetable
Manchester Psychiatry Society
Right Mind Matters
Neuroscience postdoc blog
Computing for Psychologists
Science and Education Blog
