What is R-Bloggers.com/lang?
R-Bloggers.com is a central hub (e.g: A blog aggregator) of content collected from bloggers who write about R (in English). The site will help R bloggers and users to connect and follow the “R blogosphere”.
R-Bloggers.com/lang is extending the original R-bloggers website by allowing bloggers who write in languages other then English, to add their blog, and thus improve exposure and gain readership.
If this is your first time encountering “R”: The R language (and open-source software) is the de facto standard among statisticians for the development of statistical software, and is widely used for statistical software development and data analysis (for more details about R you can read the post “What is R?“)
How does R-Bloggers operate?
This site will aggregate feeds (only with permission!) from participating R blogs. The beginnings of each participating blog’s posts will automatically be displayed on the main page; inside every post there is a link to the original blog and links to other related articles. All participating blogs will have links in the “Contributors” section of our sidebar
What does R-Bloggers offer you?
- Discover (for all): Find new R blogs you didn’t know about. And Search in them for content you want.
- Follow (for people who don’t use RSS): Enter your e-mail and subscribe to receive a daily digest with teasers of new posts from participating blogs. You will more easily get a sense of hot topics in the R blogosphere.
- Connect (for facebook users): Click on “Fan this site” to become a “fan” of R Bloggers. You can then “friend” other people and share thoughts on our wall. Or just by leaving comments on the blog.
- Participate (for bloggers): Add your R blog to get increased visibility (for readers and search engines) with permanent links on our Contributors sidebar. Your blog will also gain visibility via our e-mail digest and through your presence on the main page with posts.

You can also join our Facebook page and share it with your friends on Facebook. If you know of other R bloggers who are not yet participating, please let them know about the site and urge them to add their blogs.
Who started R-Bloggers (and why)?
R Bloggers was started by Tal Galili. After searching for numerous R blogs, Tal (well, me) decided that there must be more R blogs our there then he knows about, and maybe the best way for finding them is to make them find him. You can reach Tal via the Contact page (or just e-mail him: [email protected]).
