So, I've noticed some changing in the St. Louis City-based blogging and independent political publications scene in recent months:
So, where does that leave the local urban political "blogosphere"? (I hate that made up word, but I guess it fits here.)
There's still lots of folks plugging away, including Michael Allen and Claire Nowak-Boyd (OK, mostly Michael these days...) at Ecology of Absence, which has garnered considerably more attention lately; and of course Steve Patterson at Urban Review.
And I'm sure I am leaving others out; if you know of any local interest blogs not featured on my blogroll at the left side of this page, particularly St. Louis City-oriented political and/or urban design issues, please let me know.
Anyway, even as the folks who were involved in the early days of Metropolis Saint Louis, the Rehabbers Club, and the growth of the local political/urban planning blogs, move on to bigger and better things, I'm sure something will fill the gap.
The Urban St. Louis message boards sure are hopping these days!
