My Blog made the Local Newspaper in Cherokee County

Check out the story in the Cherokee Tribune.  The thing that I found rather odd was that even though the premise was that blogs are getting mainstream, the only examples they had were blogs from 3 technical males (1 tech writer and 2 developers).


  • >>narrowly devoted to software development

    LOL! What would they think to people that blog exclusively on GC for the .Net Compact Framework?

  • People seem to forget that college kids have been blogging for years. They might be talking about being in love or getting drunk, but it's hardly a new phenomenon.

  • Burlington's weekly (kind of like a Village Voice of Vermont) just had blogs as their cover story. All policital ones though.

  • The Cherokee Tribune! Now, that's a metropolitan daily, if I've ever seen one...!

  • Congrats. I've gotten quite a few hits directly from the article, and my total number of hits has gone up about 10-20% a day. I guess more people read the Cherokee Tribune and own a computer than I might have thought.

  • Does any one actually believe there is a mainstream anymore? When news about the news in a local newspaper from Cherokee County is being read by someone up at 2:45 AM here in Tokyo, it's pretty evident that the idea of mainstream is dead. It was an artifact of media control concentrated in the hands of a few. Blogs have been in the news for years. If they haven't been covered in the news you've been hearing, reading, or watching perhaps it's time to change sources.
