A rainy, dreary Saturday afternoon in South Florida, perfect for some excellent blogging. I present to you the Evening Sift...
***New Blogs Alert***
We have a few of them to tell you about so settle in.
[redacted]: All Purpose Dark says that Dan, [redacted]'s author, has recently relocated to South Beach from New York City with his girlfriend and dog. It looks like the blog has been around since late 2006, so Dan's not exactly a new comer to the blogosphere. He has already weighed in on Cuban coffee so it looks like he's settling into the South Florida lifestyle.
the (covert) overt: Also brought to light by APD, the (covert) overt is a new blog written by Da Lizza who describes it as:
an insider's guide to all the places in miami you should know about miami... but don't. i am single-handedly stuffing as much culture + art + music + food as i can find the time for. covering everything from downtown miami, wynwood, design district, buena vista, little haiti, and into the upper eastside. i'll be your guide for this adventure, sit back and enjoy the ride.
The Chowfather: The last of the blogs uncovered by APD, The Chowfather is a foodie blog that looks like it was just started yesterday.
Mayor's Blog: Miami Mayor Manny Diaz has a blog.
This is my new blog where I can keep you up to date on all the things happening in the City, along with my thoughts and observations on life as Mayor. We just finished an exciting week where we hosted the PODER Philanthropy Forum focusing on the business of giving. Our City Commission also approved installing solar panels at City Hall, making this historic building more energy efficient. Stay tuned as we continue blogging...
Mayor Diaz has been at it since March 13th and I have to say that while the content is somewhat weak, at least he's posting on a regular basis. Thanks to Transit Miami for the tip.
Which leads me to...
The following blogs have been retired from the SFDB blogroll due to inactivity: Boom or Bust Miami, A Grand Illusion and Anonymous Dolphan. I am continuing to monitor these blogs and if they ever start posting again, you'll see them appear on the blogroll located in the right sidebar.
On to the more significant posts of the day...
A- The Linchpen YouTubes an interview with the Miami Herald's former general counsel who provides a few legal tips for bloggers.
B- Computer Colonics provides us a couple YouTube videos of the almost completed road construction between Florida City and Key Largo. You gotta love that aqua marine Jersey barricade.
