Blog Log: The week in local blogging

The bloggers around here are a tight-knit community. Self referential, sure. But it also means bloggers often have each other’s backs. And its not always so literal as Liminal Screeds’ (very inside) slogan suggestions for the back of BlogAsheville T-shirts.

Bruisin’ Ales’ computer is down, but that’s OK because Ashvegas has the beer scene covered, noting that Highland has a new flavor coming out.

George the Bastard took umbrage at the content warning over at Pleasure Saucer. We didn’t have any problem getting to the site, but as always, it remains NSFW.

Sophie Seriously is urging everyone to join the antisyllabist movement, while Arratik is still wondering how Amazon.com makes this connection.

Edgy Mama, who took “time off” for the beach, is back. And while its good that everyone is watching out for each other online, we at Xpress especially appreciate Ephemera putting in a word for print newspapers.

Asheville on the Ground has the Longest Walk covered, while Hangover Journals found disappointment in the Naked Bike Ride.

Speaking of BlogAsheville —that definitive directory of local bloggers — they have this list of new blogs on the scene.

And we got a note from local band Mad Tea Party, which has this blog about life on tour.

    Great roundup, Brian!

    There’s whispers of a BlogAsheville gathering next month downtown somewhere. And it’s not too long until the 3rd annual Extrava…

    Thanks Ami — we’ve fixed the link.

    And thanks for the charming Daniel Johnnston anecdote from last night that’s on your blog now!
