The South Florida Watershed Journal
The first I heard about SFWJ was from Maria and while I respect Maria's opinions on new media matters, I couldn't find myself motivated to blogroll a blog about "...the Kissimmee, Lake Okeechobee, the Everglades, Big Cypress Swamp (and more) through the eyes of a hydrologist." And then it went and earned Miami New Times Best Blog and, really, how did I have a choice anymore?
SFWJ is no stranger to the blogosphere with archives going back to 2006. The Managing Editor is National Park Service hydrologist Robert V. Sobczak who works in the Big Cypress National Preserve. SFWJ uses the Blogger platform and it looks like they maintain a consistent 1-post-a-day frequency, which is great.
As you might suspect, the blog is very ecologically-oriented and rarely diverts from that perspective but if you enjoy the uniqueness of South Florida's weather and it's impact on the watershed and want to find out more about it from a scientific perspective, SFWJ might just be for you.
Holy Crap My Hair Is On Fire
The Real Edwin is the man behind Holy Crap My Hair Is On Fire, which, notice is given, will be formally known around SFDB from this point on as "Holy Crap." Holy Crap is a little bit of everything and is self-described as "Life and times in South Florida and general non-sense," although it seems to focus primarily on tech equipment and issues.
Wordpress is the platform of choice for this blog and, as is usual for Wordpress blogs, the look is clean and uncomplicated. Holy Crap has been posting since February and although a real rhythm hasn't been established yet, it appears as though The Real Edwin tries to put up something new a couple times a week.
I've been following Miami Photo for a while and have watched as they consistently turn out some interesting and well done interviews of individuals involved in South Florida's arts and culture scene. Authored by Gwen, this Blogger blog posts about once a week and has been at it since March 2008. It looks like the blog started out as a place for Gwen to post photos of different landscapes and venues around Miami, and then made the switch to its present format after a few months.
If you want to get a detailed look at some interesting South Floridians, you might want to check out the well-written Miami Photo. You can find Miami Photo in the South Florida Art Blogs blogroll.
