It was a pleasant surprise to open December's issue of the Cincinnati Magazine and see 5chw4r7z listed in the Best of the City 2009 under local blogs.
I had a blog when I moved to Cincinnati in 2004 that didn't know what it wanted to be and had no voice. Upon arriving, and discovering how awesome everything was, the blog found its voice, to tell everyone just how cool it is to live, work and play in Cincinnati.
I still feel like I'm on paid vacation living here. Downtown is my Disney World and I can't help but share it.
A couple quick shout outs, first to Ms. 5chw4r7z who hardly ever gives me eye rolls anymore when I stop to take pictures.
Raymi, who has the most awesome blog in the world and I blatantly rip off, and you should too.
And Jackie, who pushed me out of my comfort zone to be a better blogger and person.
If you want to blog, or be a better blogger, you should read and follow these rules.
Now, man, sometimes it seems like my comfort zone shoots way out there and I surprise myself. Other times I turn back into that introvert I tried to leave back in Youngstown. The introvert rears his head less and less these days.
Hi fives to the other 4 bloggers too!
