SFDB Post of the Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done during the past 7 days. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
Even though it was a holiday week, it was a great time for blogging in SoFla. There were some super posts so we have a lot of ground to cover. Let's get to it.
Winner: One of the things that bloggers can do is fill in for the mainstream media when they drop the ball. Random Pixels did just that this week when he posted Where's Carlos Alvarez, Jr? and asked some tough questions about the recent release of Carlos Alvarez, Jr., the sexual predator son of the Miami-Dade County mayor. The Miami Herald relegated the important story to a gossip column but Random Pixels noted it and brought it to the forefront of the blogosphere. Carlos Miller later expanded on Random Pixels' post and dug up even more relevant information. It was some leading edge blogging and for that reason Random Pixels' post is this week's SFDB's Post of the Week.
Runners-Up: Babalu's Mike Pancier lost his mother this week and posted a wonderful tribute to her life as a Cuban-American exile in South Florida. A bad case of cat scratch fever was all the motivation Man or Maniac needed for this very painful post he called, appropriately enough, Cat Scratch Fever. Daily Cocaine doesn't post as much as he used to, but when he does these days, it's a good one. Such was the case with his delicious review of Christmas Eve dinner at the Royal Bavarian Schnitzel Haus. And, finally, South Florida Classical Review did a great wrap-up of this year's top performances in an informative post titled Top Ten Performances of 2008.
'Til next time, people, keep on blogging!
