OMG I am finally doing it!! Anonymous Austin bloggers, y'all!
So I was incredibly thrilled that so many people responded back to the Austin bloggers post that we did, sheesh, almost 3 weeks ago. Did you know that there are nearly 50 of us out there in ATX, blogging away?!

I discovered some of the coolest stuff after visiting your pages, from a flying vagina taco fish (wow!), to a love letter to yogurt, to a write-in "advice show" by a Texan and a British gal (Snarky Girls - one of my favorite new discoveries! That unfortunately just ended!! Maybe we can all bring it back.)
Anyway.....without further ado, I bring you:

austin bloggers!
(these are just people who responded to the original post!! if you'd like to throw your own in the mix, leave a comment!)

Blogger14. Aaron said...

Well, first of all, if you blog in or about Austin and aren't posting it to www.austinbloggers.org metablog you certainly should. :-) Second of all I have a very boring and semi-stagnant tech blog not always about Austin at blog.sektormedia.org and I also post semi-regularly at austinist.comDelete

This could be embarrassing or it could be a point of bragging rights, I don't know, but here are all the blogs I have full or partial ownership of:

(1) AgentGenius.com is based in Austin (run from our home office) which is a national real estate magazine (opinion and news).

(2) RERevealed.com is my personal insight on all things Austin *and* real estate.

(3) GoSinglePointe.com is our corporate site exclusively covering Austin real estate.

(4) Snarky Girls is my personal pet project, my girlfriend in London and I have a video blog where we answer viewers' questions.

Wow. That's a lot of blogging- at least I'm using my English degree! I can't wait to see the roundup!!! :)

I blog at snowedin2006.blogspot.com.

The blog started as basically a blog about nothing (hence the almost total lack of thought put into the URL) but has become mostly about local/national politics, with occasional forays into criticizing other local institutions (such as, most recently, both KXAN and Time Warner).

I was going to post to let you know I am a semi-Austin blogger (just moved back to Houston, but lord knows I'm back and forth every weekend)
