So … I don’t know if this is significant or not, but I’m signifying it anyway.
Last year, the wonderful website All Over Albany closed its doors. Every Wednesday, they had a feature called “What’s Up in the Neighborhood,” where they listed the comings and goings of their bloggers.
I liked All Over Albany. I really did. And I felt bad when they ended publication.
So I took that one recurring feature of theirs – and added it to my regular “7 and 7 on Saturday” blog recap, and “What’s Up in the Neighborhood” continues to this day. I’ve added more blogs since then, and it’s been a great recap not only of the local Capital District blog community, but for bloggers outside the area as well.
So enough about somber anniversaries. Let’s do some blog-recaps from this week’s batch of blog goodness, shall we?
