Man, this blog is really turning into The Project That Ate the World. But that's good.
I'm going to try to get this morning's additions up quickly, because There Is Much To Be Done. Once again, the bulk of the list comes our Blog Scout Supreme, Lisa of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
No. 1: Spera en Deo. This appears to be our first blog that is tightly focused on Catholicism. Its author is Caitlyn, a 19-year-old from Mount Pleasant, who is also the creator of...
No. 2: La vida e dolce. This is her more chatty, personal blog. On the 24th, Caitlyn wrote in a post that she'll probably be posting more regularly over at Spera en Deo.
No. 3: The Blogland of Earl Capps. Earl is from Summerville, a grown man in the construction business, and he writes about things like roadway construction safety (he's for it) and Judas Priest (he likes it). But read a little bit deeper, and you find a guy who not only talks about politics and government waste, he goes out and does some reporting. When Earl found a report about a push-poll aimed at Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, he wrote to two of Bauer's opponents to ask if they were behind the poll. One wrote back, the other didn't, and Earl put it out there for people to see. Good on you, Earl.
No. 4: Brian's Blog. This is ABC meteorologist Brian Goode, and he's blogging the weather. That's it.
No. 5: The M.V. Ilhabela Log. Being the saga of the voyages of the crew of "a 40'-ish trawler with a trusty single engine diesel and room to stretch out," homeported here in Charleston.
No. 6: Miller's Place. Don't know what to say about this one yet, because I'm kinda rushed, but it looks like an eclectic mix of topics by a young, single guy. Gotta give him props: He's got the stones to actually post his New Year's Resolutions. I'd hate for anybody to see mine.
No. 7: James and Katy Moffit. Self-described: "Coming to you live from Goose Creek SC AKA 'Duck Ditch' USA. This is a Christ and family oriented Blog where you will follow along with us on our daily journey as a family of four. Our hope is that you will be encouraged and have a little fun too! God bless."
No. 8: The Land of Ozz. A Christian conservative father from Goose Creek who works as a network security engineer. Nicely constructed, with clean About page, Bible verse of the Day, clear statements of purpose.
No. 9: The Triumvirate. Lisa said one of the writers here (apparently "The Quartermaster") lives in Charleston (he's a C of C student). Well, The Quartermaster is all over this blog. Meanwhile, he's just encountered his first Palmetto Bug and he's still recovering. "When I thought 'hey, Charleston sounds like a pretty sweet place to live', no one warned me about the roaches. Huge, disgusting, crawl over your feet while you are trying to blog and scare the crap out of you roaches." Welcome to Charleston, QM. Anyway, the primary interest here appears to be politics, and the politics are self-described conservative, though not automatically GOP-partisan.
No. 10. Lisa also listed several others, including my media blog, Conover on Media, which I've not linked here because I've only been linking to blogs that had been updated in the past month or so, and I don't post over there except when I have something to write about media trends, media reform or just general media geekiness. Then again, when I wrote something about this blog over there the other day, I linked to it, so I'm not exactly hiding it.
In the meantime, I'm not going to add the others she found (a couple have been previously noted by others) because they're just not active enough.
Also, via Joan, comes No. 11: Vera's Crafty Blog, which has already been noted in comments and added to TBB. This is a very personable, info-rich blog by a knitter/crafter, complete with photos, advice, and general talk about books and music and other topics. Kinda like dropping in for tea with a crafty conversationalist.
