I'm afraid I'm going to have to put the blog up on the shelf for a bit as I am driving down to Florida this week to take up residence there. I will, however, continue to blog about Albany when I get down there, as I still have plenty to say and will also be keeping up the current events of Albany through the net and friends.
In the meantime, I have several blogs to suggest people keep up on.
Oh, Smalbany! is an excellent blog about various local places and goings on, from where to eat to bits and pieces of interest about Albany. Oh, Smalbany! is currently on hiatus, but the writer of it will, in the interim, be writing a blog on Shaker High Basketball, which avid sports fans should read.
The Albany Eye is focused on the Albany media, from behind the scenes action to current events of interest. It's well written and provides an amusing insight into what goes on in the news scene in the area.
The Troy Polloi is the place to read up on Troy Politics. The satire is great, and the chronicling of the Troy political scene is exceptional. I would say this site is a staple for Rensselaer County voters.
Capital Region People deals with events going in the Capital region on occasion, but mainly spotlights different bloggers in and around the world. It's a great site for good blogs to keep up on.
Farah's Sowaleef has absolutely nothing to do with Albany, but the author is an extremely thoughtful young woman in Saudi Arabia who is an absolute joy to read and talk to. It's an interesting view into the Muslim world from the eyes of a female Saudi blogger.
