They Come and They Go

There has been quite a turnover of bloggers recently. Gen X at 40 reports “Ray quit blogging yesterday and is released from the burden.” And sadly Democracy in Albany is reporting their “imminent retirement. At the very least I’m taking a sabbatical (at least 3 months).” This following their being voted Metroland’s Best Blog (News) this past year:

Despite all of the you-scratch-my-back attention heaped on certain blogs by local media (i.e., the Times Union’s oft-requited love for the schizophrenic Albany Eye blog), the author of DIA has managed to make his Internet soapbox into the most consistent and insightful forum on the Web for discussing the issues affecting the Capital Region. DIA and its legion of regular commenters succeed where their counterparts fail: welcoming debate on entries, encouraging the spread of information, casting a wide-reaching, critical eye on local media (including Metroland, of course) and generally providing a great online clearinghouse for all things regional and political.

Even our beloved Newsbreakers Blog seems to have been abandoned; as has apparently the Newsbreakers Parent Site.

They Join:

Mike Beganyi
Greg Dennis: Between The Lines
The WAMC Northeast Pirate Network
Albany Eye.Net

They come and they go. New regional blog additions include:

Out Of My Head
Stacie’s Blog

And it looks like Take Back Our Campus is Coming Back, at least we hope so.
