Blogosphere de Santa Fe, v. 1, pt. 2

Current Events

After winning the Santa Fe Reporter's Best Local Blog award, we thought we'd take this opportunity to introduce you to some local blogs of note. There are so many we like, that we'll have to do a few blogs just to tell you about them!

Today we continue our focus on news, politics, and current events blogs:

George Johnson's Dispatches from the Land and Water Wars is more a journal than a blog, as he notes in his title, The Santa Fe Review: a journal of commentary and reportage. An insightful blend of objective news and personal opinion, Johnson keeps his readers informed of the facts and in touch with the ramifications.

In the same vein, but focusing solely on water issues, is Water (b)Logged in Northern New Mexico, by Santa Fe New Mexican reporter and self-proclaimed water groupie Staci Matlock. Personal observations of local water conditions are interspersed with reports of water legislation and science journal articles. An excellent resource for anyone concerned with water issues.

The SF Reporter is also affiliated with blogs: Swing State of Mind features current election coverage, delves into investigative reporter Dave Maas's commentary on current events and the reporting profession, while editor Julia Goldberg's blog inspires us to vote while assuring us that we get much more sleep than she does.

Let us know if we missed your favorite blog!
