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's been a while since I did a PotW. Since I took a couple weeks off in August, I decided just to bag the whole month and start again when a new month started. So here we are. And we had some great posts during the first week of September. Here we go...
Runners-Up: The Freedom Tower in downtown Miami is historically significant to South Florida but until I read (and watched) Sex and the Beach's excellent post on the landmark, I didn't realize just how significant. Another Cobaya dining experiment was recently held which means that the South Florida blogosphere was treated to another fine missive from Food for Thought that is beautifully composed and imaged. Discourse did a nice job breaking down and explaining the homeowner's insurance scam that Republicans in Tallahassee are helping to facilitate...even I can understand it.
Winner: Yes, Critical Miami has been resurrected. And there couldn't be a better example of what we all can expect from its renewed soul than "A Frolic In The Middle Keys." Big, honkin' photos with entertaining and informative narrative are the heart of Critical Miami's best posts and this one was loaded with them. Yes, most of us have been there, but it seems like Alesh found a few more special components of the Keys that we somehow seem to miss when we visit. I'm looking forward to more posts like this one, as should you. While we wait, I'm going to give A Frolic In The Middle Keys the SFDB Post of the Week.
'Til next time, keep on blogging!
