Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Thanks, bloggers for all you do. If it’s not current events, it’s discussions on current events. And if it’s not that, then its rants about your own blog. Or blogging sock monkeys. Whichever.

Once again, Asheville is making itself known throughout the blog nation. A political cartoon in the daily paper made waves on a few N.C. venues, but also earned some choice words at Feministe and made it all the way to Seattle’s Slog, where the conversation continues.

Here at home, Edgy Mama has a discussion going on the thesis that boobs are food, Art Seen Asheville followed the 48 Hour Dance Project and The Adventures of Supermom showed up on the teevee.

In the meta arena, Pancho’s Via is fascinated by Facebook, Dark Topography is negotiating the waters of blogtiquette, and over at Knitting in Asheville, well, the sock monkeys are blogging too.

If you think that’s crazy, The Hangover Journals is getting paranoid about that thumping noise, and tune in to Cats Clutter and Crafts for some good manic energy.

But sometimes we like our crazy classic, like taking Abraham Lincoln out for pizza for his 200th birthday.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
