Anders Glyllenhaal wrote about blogs today. The Miami Herald is now going to have a blog listing. He said the Herald had a group of the most active bloggers in South Florida at the paper to critique the guide. Hmmm.
When Channel 4 had a meeting of active South Florida bloggers, we were included and they even bought us a delicious catered lunch, from Subway. The Herald did not invite us to their meeting. Is Eye on Miami too critical of the Miami Herald? Leaving us out would be like us leaving out Natacha Seijas in a list of County Commissioners. You might think we are prickly Mr. Glyllenhaal but, HELLO, we are here in Miami right under your nose. Other blogger have responded so I want to add this postscript for them: I put our blog on their list, that is why we are showing up at the Herald site. They didn't.
However, the snub was not just for the meeting. A major article was written by Tamara Lush which the Herald printed. Eye on Miami figured prominently in the article as we had been writing about the impending housing crash and foreclosures long before the Herald. The only thing the Herald left out of the LUSH article: All references to Eye on Miami!! We aren't paranoid, we are realists.
