7 and 7 on Saturday: June 10, 2017

So last Saturday I started a “7 and 7” blog recap – seven blogs from the Times Union’s community blogging team (no staffers) and seven blogs from people on my blogroll that I think you definitely should read and enjoy.

And my first run on this last week was a nice success. Lots of positive mojo.

So guess what … I’m doing it again.  These blogs deserve your attention, and I’m more than happy to set aside my blog once day a week to showcase these wonderful writers and storytellers and photographers.

First, let’s start with the community bloggers from Big Hearst, shall we?  They include:

  1. Rob Hoffman in the Hoffman Files blog, “If it bends it’s funny, if it breaks it’s not funny.(Read this first.)
  2. Rabbi Matt Cutler’s blog, “Jewish-Muslim Dialogue: A One-Act Play.
  3. David Kalish’s “Ruminator” blog, “Who will bell the Trump?
  4. Pete Bardunias’ blog, “The Saratoga Returns to War … Amid a Crisis of Leaks.
  5. Jaye McBride’s blog, “Things I’d like to see at James Comey’s testimony.
  6. Sydney Hoffman at the Student News Desk, “Searching the 518 for the perfect burger.
  7. Sonja Stark’s “PilotGirl” blog, “Anytime is a good time to visit Music City.

This covers the Times Union community bloggers, now let’s check around my blogroll for some of the best from other bloggers whose works I follow (and whom you should also foll0w).

  1. Carl Johnson’s “Hoxsie!” Albany history blog, “Hey, you’re blocking my view.(Read this first.)
