As we get closer to this weekend's Minnesota Organization of Bloggers outstate Road Show in Saint Cloud this weekend, I figure it's time to turn whatever little spotlight my humble blog shines on some of my favorite MOB blogs.
The MOB, for those of you who aren't Minnesota bloggers, is a thoroughly informal group of bloggers. The group's only agenda is social; to get bloggers together, eat, drink and be geeky. The "organization" is built around a couple of annual get-togethers in the Twin Cities and, as we're starting this weekend, some outstate shindigs as well. Unlike some of the other local blogging shindigs, it's utterly ecumenical; the MOB includes people from all over the political spectrum. Although most of the constituent blogs are probably right of center, that's just a matter of how the local blog scene is, or so it seems.
Anyway, the link bar for the MOB is on the right gutter of my blog, and you should read 'em all, one way or another.
But I figured I'd give a shout out to some of the MOB blogs I've been reading most regularly .
First Ring - A couple of excellent writers, covering a plethora of topics very, very well. A daily read.
Cathy In The Wright - Her home life is a lot funnier than mine - or so it seems from reading her blog...
Kool Aid Report - Like Scrappleface with tire irons. Like Powerline on meth. Like Nihilist without the black background.
Kennedy Vs. The Machine - A blog with a mission - obviously - and if there's any justice, one they'll accomplish. One of the best blogs going for Minnesota politics.
Pair O' Dice - As subtle as a frying pan to the forehead. But if you know Swiftee, I suspect he'd take that as a compliment.
Bogus Gold - Very eclectic: political commentary, plus perhaps the finest info on growing tomatoes available today.
Wog's Blog - A funny, pithy blog about alcoholism, DUI, and daily life.
What If - Tends to veer off into some really interesting tangent topics that I'd never think about veering into otherwise.
I could probably list more - and no doubt will. But suffice to say that if you're looking for some new blogs to graze on, a skim down the MOB Blogroll to the right is worth a few moments.Posted by Mitch at May 18, 2005 05:04 AM | TrackBack
