SFDB Post Of The Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done over the past 7 days. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
It was kind of a tough week in the South Florida blogosphere. In looking back over the Sifts, nothing really jumped out like sometimes happens so I had to dig a little. I hope you agree with the choices I made...
Winner: Miami Beach 411 continues to produce some excellent blogging from its list of paid contributors. This week, Maria de los Angeles posted a comprehensive piece about a a monthly event that takes place in Little Havana called "Viernes Culturales" (Cultural Fridays) and an associated tour of the area that is given by Miami historian, Dr. Paul George. Like most good blog posts, Maria's makes generous use of pictures, a video and lots of good links to additional information. Touring Little Havana With Dr. Paul George is the name of the post and this week, it's SFDB's Post of the Week.
Runners-Up: Coconut Grove Grapevine proposed an interesting idea of having a free shuttle run tourists into the Grove from outlying areas that generated a fair amount of discussion in its comments section. Carlos Miller, acting more like a cub reporter than a blogger [which, by the way, I consider a good thing], obtained a copy of an arrest report from a local police department and included it in his follow up to a story that he has been intensely following. And in yet another Miami Beach 411 post titled The Changing Face of South Beach, Doug Eames does a great job examining the changes that South Beach is experiencing and what the future holds for the popular area.
'Til next time, people, keep on blogging!
