Blog Alert: CityBeat's Best of Cincinnati

Queen City Survey Mentioned!

This week's issue of CityBeat is their "Best of Cincinnati" edition. Picks were voted on by readers and by staff and in the Staff Picks there is the following . . .

Best Source of Micro-Local Media:
Cincinnati has a wealth of blog sites devoted to incredibly local topics, and many are quite good: Cincinnati Locavore, whose theme of "eat local, live local" inspired this Best of Cincinnati issue (; Building Cincinnati, which covers local community development (; CityKin, which promotes urban living (; Queen City Survey, which also promotes urban living and is having a cool NCAA-type bracket tournament to determine the area’s best architecture (; and the readers’ choice for Best Blog, Buy Cincy, which promotes one of our favorite causes: supporting locally owned independent businesses (

Honestly, I'm honored. And I was thinking March(itecture) Maddness was only "cool" in my own head. I enjoy the other blogs mentioned and all are in my blog roll.

In the Readers Picks for Best Blog there are the following:
1. Buy Cincy (
2. Building Cincinnati (
3. Lance McAlister Blog (
4. Cincinnati Blog (
5. Urban Cincinnati (

Of those, I link to all but Lance. I might have to check it out more . . .

I've added CityBeat to my 'Cincinnati Websites' roll on the right. They really do have a great online calendar for live bands and events. Thank you CityBeat.

Congrats on the CityBeat shout-out, Dan! Your blog definitely has added a unique voice to the Cincy blog scene.

Steve: I actually think your blog is probably more unique - spirituality, family, Cincinnati, sports, and Backstreet Boys!
