If you didn’t know, there’s a little thing in town called KC Bloggers that collects and lists various KC blogs. I’ve found some great local blogs through KC Bloggers.
To the point – Steve, over at Heresies and Blasphemies, is opening a dialogue about how best to form and coordinate a roving unit of KC bloggers who collectively read and comment on KC blogs. So, if this interests you in any way, join in on the discussion.
Me typing this post:
What up, yo?
Didn’t even realize that was you, jdoublep – Badda Blog!, I mean. Nice blog. That’s what I get for not reading bylines, eh?
I thought it might be a cool way to get some visibility into the KC Blogsphere (yes, toby, I used the word “blogsphere”) and maybe suss out the blogs that are cool, and the ones that aren’t, and maybe argue about the difference a little. 😀

Thanks for the kind words about the site, Steve!
As for the commenting collective – itt’s definitely a cool idea and I like the project for several reasons:
1) We get to focus on just one blog and just one entry per day, which lends itself over time to tracking the blogs that get more of our attention (and why).
2) We help other KC blogs get traffic and leave some worthwhile commentary. As you said in the comments on H&B, the idea isn’t just to spam a particular blog. I see it as a project to cultivate, if you will, good karma as bloggers.
3) Finally, we get to find and read new and interesting things and tell other people about them.
Now that’s good stuff.

Best case scenario would be one in which bloggers were happy to have the Roving Blog Riot Club visit their site… 😀
Maybe we should make an award icon… Like “RBRC was here” or something… LOL

It sound really interesting, but I think it could be slightly scary to those of us who are relatively timid about blogging. Perhaps I’m just talking about myself. ;D (which is generally the purpose of ablog, right?)

Producer of my fave KC radio program, WHAT UP?!
Everyone, check out Sunshine’s blog to see what rocking tunes you’re missing, and listen to her show on 90.1 – 10PM Saturday nights.
As for timidity in blogging – hell, you get to do with it what you will. Timid or full frontal blogging, it’s all good.
