Now… on to the highlights of Georgia blogging during the past two weeks

Creative Loafing’s annual Best of Atlanta is out……The critics picks regarding blogging announced best local blogger as the team over at Pecanne Log.

The critics also named David O'Brien's Braves Blog as the best columnist not found in the pages of the AJC.

Readers picked the Blissful Glutton as best blog.

Many, many congrats!

Well, Sara from Ashes and Glass has been a busy girl. Did you see her on the news? As many of you may know Troy Davis received a stay of execution this week.

Susan over at Patchwork Reflections shares The Last Bivouac from the Georgia National Cemetery in Cherokee County.

I took some much needed time to recooperate this week and stayed away from blogging, but I did manage to post over at History Is Elementary a few things about John Wilkes Booth you might not know.

Recently GriftDrift over at Drifting Through the Grift posted Reindeer Games…..ever wonder why more private political fundraising gatherings aren’t covered by the media?

Literary Rock Stars? Is there such a thing? Yep, there is. Felicia from Fluffy Flowers provides an excellent review of the recent Decatur Book Festival.

Over at Bill Shipp Online I found out this morning that Obama Has Dropped Georgia TV.

Urban Flats at Lindburgh has been reviewed by Chow Down Atlanta….and don’t worry….the food is exactly the same as their Lawrenceville location.

The Frisbee Report asks, “Do we have a living Constitution?"

William Cotter presents Alpo On Sale posted at Paw Paw Bill where he discusses the Depression in relation to the economic mess we are in today, and in his post Blank Check former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, asks, “Why should Wall Street get bailed out by me when I’m getting screwed?” A very apt question if you ask me.

Angela Otwell from amo, provides a new painting, seasonally appropriate titled Still Haunted.

Kudos goes out to Georgia blogger, Legaleagle. His blog, LegalEagle Judgments has been invited by, one of America’s top internet service providers, to join “Media Outrage,” to reveal and review the most outrageous media bias.

In case you’ve been busy the saga to save Jekyll Island continues….posted right here at Georgia on My Mind.

Finally, I wanted to let everyone know that O, The Joys along with another blog has revived the ROFL Awards. You can participate by nominating a post for the September ROFL Awards. The deadline is October 1st. You can find out all about it here.

Your efforts on behalf of Georgia bloggers is all the more remarkable as you continue recovery from your surgery. Thank you, and best get well wishes. By the way, I only just read your 2006 posting at History is Elementary of your 9/11 Lessons Learned. What a wonderful report of a wonderful experience in a tragic moment! Teachers and teaching are both a gift given and received. Had I written such a blog about 9/11 I would be unable to ever top it. Therefore I would allow it to become my annual memorial.

Thank you!

I will treasure your kind words about my 9/11 memory in 2006. Such a sad day, but such a great day to be proud of my students. :)
