Have you noticed the neighborhood blogroll?

*blows off dust*

I've been putting off for a while posting this. It was supposed to be an announcement but I was Googling for stories about Sen. Roland Burris and I found this blog for the Chatham/Avalon Park Community Association. They have only started since October of last year and there are already a number of issues worth tackling on that blog. Check out this post tackling the Burris story.

BTW, Burris if you haven't been following this story or even paid attention to the fact that the media is literally filing reports outside of his home. His home being in Chicago's Sixth Ward and more specifically in the Chatham neighorhood of Chicago.

The neighborhood blogroll has been around well I've been sitting on this post since November and maybe longer. This Chatham/Avalon Park blog is definitely a good find but I want you to know they're not the only ones who blog in the ward/neighborhood.

Other entrants to the 6th Ward's neighborhood blogroll is my blogs It's My Mind, The Movie Cabinet, & John G. Shedd Public School. There's also our own JP Paulus who blogs (intermittently lol) at More 2 Ignore. Finally there's The Violence Project by James Edwards.

I've been saying this a lot early on. While I just as easily hoped that we can find more contributors from the different parts of this ward I also hoped that we can interest others in starting their own blogs. Especially if these blogs can tackle more neighborhood-centric issues as Chatham/Avalon Park blog is doing at the moment. Not that this is the only reason you should set up a blog, what you do with a blog is entirely up to you. There is nothing but varying subjects one should tackle

All I can ask is that if you do choose to blog and you want some link love, let us know. We have an e-mail address which you will see near the end of this post, although you can also look at the far left sidebar and use that to send an e-mail as well. You will be linked especially if you find contacts us, if we find you the same we'll link you just as we did for Chatham/Avalon Park.

So let's utilize this internet electronic network to keep in touch and get active!

Also added is the blog for the 6th Ward Junior Democrats.
