Best of our TU Independent Blogs, July 28, 2016: Ten for Thursday

How’s your week going?  Do you need some inspiration in your life?  Do you need some positive motivation, some intelligent discourse, some reinforcement of the belief that there is great blogging out there?

Look no further than the Times Union’s crew of independent and community bloggers, all of whom have great stories to tell and a great opportunity to do so.  There’s so many positive things happening in their lives, and reading their posts will make you smarter.  Trust me.  Six out of five doctors surveyed agree with me.

And this week’s list of independent and community bloggers starts off with…

  1. Malick Diomande in the College blog, “The doubts of a student-athlete.”  (Read this first.)
