Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Oh man, the polling for the BlogAsheville Awards has not even opened yet and local bloggers are getting ready for their red-carpet appearances at the annual hootenanny known by all as Extravablogiversapaloozathon.

This is when bloggers show themselves in all their flesh-and-blood reality, so it’s time to take a look in the mirror and shape up.

Trapdoor into Dinosaur Pit is already in there, sexing up for Mountain Xpress’ own “Best of WNC” Issue.

Likewise, Petulant Rumblings already has the shoes and now just needs the cat suit.

1,000 Black Lines is brushing crumbs out of his beard and checking his zipper.

Reduce Footprints is trying to figure out how to lose the beard without killing the Earth.

Meanwhile, Undercover Blue is advising the guys not to go overboard with the macho thing: better to keep it real, like Revenge of the Word Nerd did at the fair.

And speaking of macho, are you man enough to date A Husband Wanted and have the results posted online? Complete with scathing criticisms? Didn’t think so.

    I’m stoked about the Extravablogiversapaloozathon, despite the fact that my spell-checker hates it.

    Hey, all! Just wanted to mention that the Kat Box blog did not go belly up even though FreakinAsheville isn’t up and running these days…
    All those bitter musings and random thoughts can be found at the Kat Box’s (hopefully permanent!!) new corner of cyberspace:

    thanks to everyone who stuck with me through my blog’s move from freakinasheville to freakinuniverse back to freakinasheville and now to my new spot…i’ll try to stay put now.
