Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Hey nonblogger: You think this stuff is easy? That maybe bloggers just casually whip out a quick entry between working, raising kids or whatever? These people sweat and toil to bring you, the reader, distractions from your job on a day to day-ish basis.

The enterprise is not without danger. As Running Gags notes, blogging can make you fat, though the risk was worth it for Chasing the Bread Truck to pick Short Street Bakery blogger My Life in Cake for the best cupcakes in town.

The stress can be wearing. Case in point: Girl Named Boo needs to take a deep breath after this list of irritations.

And sometimes, bloggers like What the Hell even have to emerge into the outside world for some human interaction.

There are constant obstacles to time and effort that hinder keeping a site up to date. Pokey Sticks and Politics, for instance, is apologetic while How to Take a Fall is a bit confrontational.
For others, like Phidoux, it’s all over.

Still, rising to the challenge sometimes means making promises, such as Hangover Journals, who has resolved to post every day through May. Even so, holding So Much for Tact to one such commitment may have gotten us scolded a bit.

So give credit where it’s due. These folks are on the information edge, and they deserve respect for bringing us insights like this and this.

    So Much For Tact is the best local blog out there. I admire Jason Bugg for the wit and candor he displays.

    And he’s such a gentle, modest soul, too.
