Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Twitter! Man! Crazy stuff! Am I right?

We know the tweets are catching on. Heck, we have them ourselves! Thank goodness some of you old-fashioned folks are still using the archaic communication format known as weblogs!

Scrutiny Hooligans is rounding up some of his favorite twitter feeds here, with the comments showing that the microblogging program still has some folks to win over. Easy Bake Coven has this about life in 140 characters. But Thought Patterns, eschewing cartoons, chose to say it like this.

Face it, some things are too difficult for Twitter. Biking across Texas, for instance, is fraught with complications, according to Laurey Bikes. As is hauling a trailer of goat poop at GIS Memories.

But just because you blog doesn’t mean you are down with all the Internet’s bells and whistles, you know. Adventures of Supermom, for instance, got denied by Wikipedia. Speaking of denial, Boston Dreams and Michelin Stars says you don’t have to deny yourself the red meat. And Dark Topography can no longer deny the AK-47.

And complications can’t stop George “the” Bastard from blogging, despite a broken toe (blogger injuries being somewhat of a hobby of ours).

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.
