Blog Log: The week in local blogging

You bloggers are a bunch of movers and shakers. Not content to sit there gathering cobwebs, you all are getting around. Moving? Yes. Grooving? Yes.

A. Fletcher graduated and is so outa there and Josh Rosenburg loves him some big cities.

Jason Bugg, formerly of So Much for Tact, then Bugg Blog, has moved and is now The (bugg) Blog, and apparently, it feels good.

Laurey Bikes, who just got done pedaling across the country, is putting down roots.

As for unexpected movements, Blue Barnhouse was there when someone crashed a car into The Admiral. Again. Meanwhile, Bruisin’ Ales Beer Blog is witnessing carnage of another kind.

Dark Topography is creeping us out with tales from the trip to Lost Cove.

Want to remember what it was like when you first moved here? Insatiable Curiosity has you covered.

And the big sign in front of Pack Place is moving out, and Ashevillein is OK with that.

On another note, this is a bit late (we were moving around ourselves last week) but Blue Ridge Blue Collar Girl has some thoughts on the Blog Log. We don’t take compliments very well (we’re blushing, really) but she’s right on the money on our affinity for blogger injuries. So there you go.

Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.

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.
