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.
What a week. Despite the holidays, or perhaps because of them, some exemplary writing and blog posts emanated from the South Florida blogosphere this week. It was tough coming up with the 4 best posts from the long list of 14 finalists that I collected. But I'll be honest and say that selecting the winner was a piece of cake.
Runners-Up: A recent quail hunt in the wilds of Florida was the basis for a very descriptive and entertaining Blind Tastes post, called "The Hunt," that made generous use of photos. Random Pixels provided a very readable profile of Florida journalist and storyteller Jeff Klinkenberg, who receives a lot of kudos from RP in his post titled, "One Of Florida's Great Storytellers." In "I Won My Appeal," Carlos Miller drops two significant pieces of news on his readers, talks about his current legal status and generates over 90 comments from his audience.
Winner: Hidden City had been in a bit of dry spell over much of 2009. But now he's back and composing posts of the quality that most bloggers can only dream about. On Christmas Day he provided his readers with a post titled, appropriately, "Gifts," in which he tells us about a visit from Santa and a gift that makes the post possible. I, for one, am glad that Hidden City is back to sharing his stories and I hope that he continues. For his thoughtful gift to the South Florida blogosphere this Christmas, I'm happy to recognize Hidden City with this week's Post of the Week.
'Til next time, people, keep on blogging!
