Meeting of the Blogging Minds!

April 17, 2008

Last evening I had the pleasure to meet fellow local blogger and intrepid community reporter Aberdeener and his lovely family. While I am not an Aberdeen resident, I have been following his blog to keep up to date on the issues affecting the Aberdeen area.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, the political slant isn’t my beat. I certainly like to know what’s happening so I’m glad we have the Aberdeener, Matawan Advocate, and others who focus on the more political side of things. From meeting with and speaking with Joey, he has a good grasp on what’s happening, the ins and outs of the local government and school district, and he cares to investigate the facts. It’s encouraging to know we have people, like the Aberdeener, paying attention and not afraid to openly talk about what, I’m sure, many simply whisper about.

For this, however, he does get some flack. There are, obviously, some who don’t like what he writes about. Perhaps they are guilty parties and the truth stings. :) In any case, I give him a lot of credit for doing his thing. It was a pleasure to meet him as we share a lot of the same visions for ensuring a certain quality of life for all residents in this area and bringing the community together.

  1. Nice note in the Aberdeener about your website.

    You are correct when you write about the flack he unjustly receives. Anyone who writes a political blog, anonymously or not, will always have people who don’t share their opinions. The Aberdeener backs up what he reports with documentation. Of course, he also adds his comments, which usually are right on the money. We believe Blogs have a place on the internet. Thank our forefathers for free speech!
