The most comprehensive list of Humboldt Blogs ever published

With only two "major" newspapers and just a couple of underdog publications, Humboldt County is slim on media in general. Go online, however, and you'll find an assortment of local blogs and forums that can make an excellent addition to your daily media slurp. Between the blogs, discussion threads, and the Times-Standard's public comments at the end of each of their online articles, one can be exposed to a very large set of mostly anonymous public opinions.

But first, let's take a quick look at the most prominent local online newspapers. I would like to note that the San Francisco Chronicle once reported that Humboldt County is the most competitive print-media environment in the state of California.

Read the entire list of over 170 local blogs!

Humboldt County Newspapers

Times-Standard - The good ol' boy of Humboldt media, the Times-Standard used to be two newspapers--the Humboldt Times and the Humboldt Standard, which merged in 1967, more than 100 years after the first Humboldt Times was printed. The Times-Standard is a reliable publication, and although it is sometimes criticized for poor reporting, editing, and slanted stories, it remains the flagship newspaper of Humboldt County, though it is now owned by MediaNews Group, Inc. To be fair, the Times-Standard appears to be the only local publication whose primary intention is to simply report the local news.

Eureka Reporter - This Arkley-owned publication plays by a different set of rules than the Times-Standard (and most real newspapers in the USA). Established in 2003, and now printed on a very high-end and incredibly expensive press, the Reporter seems to be a direct attempt by the Arkleys to have greater local influence via printed media in our small community. More appropriately labeled a "shopper" because it is free and force-fed to almost every home in Eureka/Arcata/McKinnleyville, the Reporter claims a circulation of 25,000, though rumor has it that they have only 6,000 actual readers. One thing is for sure, the Reporter is the nicest looking newspaper in the area--a direct result of their fancy printing press. The Eureka Reporter doesn't turn a profit, but Robin P. Arkley II appears content losing many dollars on his pet project every year, which is not surprising given his history of donations and community betterments. Rob and Cherie Arkley have been the subject of many lively political debates in the area.

North Coast Journal - Weekly paper since 1998, the Journal is a free publication distributed all over Humboldt County known for "stirring the pot" on a weekly basis. It covers local news, arts, culture, and entertainment in Humboldt County. The Journal is known for in-depth local interviews and well-written human interest stories, as well as being credited as the only outfit brave enough to speak out for the people. The Journal takes pride in aggressively persuing environmental stories, and they have received many awards for such reporting.

Arcata Eye - A subcription paper which also publishes some of its stories online, the Eye reports almost exclusively on local issues. They have a lively opinion section, and as a staff they seem to have strong opinions on hot topics like the war in Iraq. Look for the Arcata Eye if you want a truly Arcatian view of the news.

LumberJack - Humboldt State University's student-run newspaper. Everyone should check up on the local school paper -- they're doing a fine job, and they maintain an excellent sense of humor.

Humboldt County Blogs

1. SoHum Parlance - Absolute starting point for Humboldt blog readers, Eric V. Kirk's SoHum Parlance is a well-written publication with frequent updates. Eric seems to know a lot of people, and although his blog receives its share of trolls and hate posts, he maintains a very reasonable tone in his writing and manages to filter out most of the trolls.

2. Fred's Humboldt Blog - Fred labels himself a libertarian, but fortunately doesn't spend much time writing about libertarian views on his blog. He mostly provides sound, understandable opinions related to the current events of Humboldt County, and his posts are generally a pleasure to read.

3. Humboldt-Herald - Anonymous blogger 'Heraldo' keeps us up to date with what the papers are saying on an almost-daily basis. The comment threads can get slightly out of hand, but it's generally tolerable.

4. Myrtletown.net - Community forum focused on Eureka's best-kept little secret, Myrtletown. This blog is slightly different from the rest in that it runs on totally custom software (not blogger or blogspot or typepad or wordpress), and the forum is integrated into the blog. Or maybe the blog is integrated into the forum... In any case, Myrtletown.net aims to be more than just a blog by providing free classifieds, and original content, and free wireless internet in Myrtletown.

5. 299 Opine - "Light hearted musings about life in Humboldt County. Past and present." 299 Opine is a newcomer to the Humboldt blog scene, but it is so much fun to read and the graphics are just so clever that it is difficult to avoid checking this blog every 30 minutes in hopes that EkoVox has posted a new story. Do not miss this blog, it is solid gold.

6. Rambling Jacks' Laboratory - "A McKinleyville-based repository for ruminations and assorted rubbish." One of my all-time favorites, I can't get enough of the great photos that are always being posted here.

7. Eureka Standard - Anonymous author Carson Park Ranger pens a couple of posts per week on this blog, mostly pertaining to local events, politics, and general community news. Carson seems to enjoy linking to sites and stories outside of the local media, but which still pertain to our community. Usually not heavy on opinions, with good rants and threads in the comments.

8. Samoa Softball - Richard Marks of Samoa, California owns this blog.

9. watchpaul (rose's blog) - Local blogger "Rose" owns this blog which asks its readers if Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos is a "visionary" or "one of the most corrupt and inept District Attorneys in the state" as its first descriptive statement.

11. Save Ancient Forests - The focus here is news and opinions related to forest preservation.

12. Humboldt County Forest Monitor - "Reporting details of industrial Timber Harvest Plans (THPs) that pose a significant threat to human and environmental health and safety in Humboldt County, California."

13. The Plazoid - "independent self-published 'zine from Arcata California," the PLAZOID isn't updated very often but has been around since February of 2005.

14. Humblogger - "words and photos from a Humboldt County journalist." Humblogger seems to focus on local entertainment-related news and appears to be updated about once every month or so.

15. Steve Lewis - "A communitarian point of view on local, regional, national and international events." Steve chooses some pretty interesting topics to write about. Here is an interesting one.

16. Captain Future's Dreaming Up Daily - While Downward Bound: Hope in a Darkening Age... news, comment, arts, ecology, wisdom, obsessions, the future... "THE END OF ALL INTELLIGENT ANALYSIS IS TO CLEAR THE WAY FOR SYNTHESIS."--H.G. Wells... "It's not dark yet, but it's getting there..." Bob Dylan

17. Talking Tech - Bob Morse, owner of MorseMedia and a handful of other web pages related to Humboldt County, posts tech news as it relates to Humboldt County. One thing that differentiates Talking Tech from the other local blogs is that Bob only maintains links to his own web sites and his own blog archives. You won't find any links to other blogs or local businesses, so unless you can't live without Bob's tech updates this might be the kind of blog to check via RSS.

18. It's a Sign - Written by "A large, bald member of the realty community who's tired of the bullshit that some call news." This blog is technically out of Ukiah, California, but hey, that's pretty close to Humboldt.

19. Greg's List - AKA "Carol & Greg's Place", this is a pleasant-looking blog with the usual entries. Nothing terribly unique resides here, however the photos are good and the writing is better.

20. The Petch House - "Under The Fog And Behind The Redwoods Restoring An 1895 Victorian Home." A very fun blog to read for any Humboldt County homeowner or victorian enthusiast.

21. On The Road Again - Ed says he's a lawyer who travels fequently and writes about it here. Most interestingly, Ed's blog is one of only a small handful of local blogs which don't use Blogger or Blogspot.

22. Dirt - Amy Stewart has written a few books on gardening, and at her blog she writes even more about gardening. At first glance, this blog looks like little more than a sales pitch for Amy's books, but it turns out that the writing is great, and Dirt is well read among the garden-blog viewers of the internet.

23. House of Sand and Fog - Written by Jennifer Savage, a self-described mother/writer/surfer/DJ who lives in Manila, California. (recently moved to WordPress)

24. Boheniam Mermaid Palace - Blog by an Arcatan clothing slanger: "I live on the faaaar north coast of CA with "Barney" the Best Boyfriend in the Wholewideworld and our Invisible Dog, Panda. My Mermaid clothing biz is still growing, but I'm doing MY part to save the world. Also teaching a bit and now playing Officegirl for a funloving group of peaceniks. Overall, it's pretty entertaining...stay tuned!"

25. Mattole Wildlands Defense - "The Mattole Wildlands Defenders carry the torch of over 6 years of non-violent direct action in defense of the Oldgrowth Forests in the Rainbow Ridge area and the headwaters of the North Fork Mattole River. To get involved or help call- 707-834-3100. or write: P.O. Box 4803 Arcata, Ca 95521"

26. Forest Defender - Forest says: "I hope to provide timely news coverage of events in Humboldt County, California, especially those related to forest defense, but also other environmental issues, globalization, social justice, and the anti-war movement."

27. Arcata Whacko - "A Helluva Hillhippy, . . . thoroughly baked, yet just warming up . . . writing in Arcata, Humboldt County, California"

28. Reggae: Past, Present, and Future - "an examination of Humboldt County's Reggae on the River. Regarding comments on this blog: All remarks come to the moderator/gatekeeper via e-mail before being posted. Simply put, anonymous personal attacks and unsubstantiated rumors don't make it though my filter."

29. Humboldt Homestead - Blogger Jojo Roxx describes this blog: "My Online journal of the seasonal flow at home. The images, experiences, poetry, impressions and facts on the trees, vines, flowers, vegetables, herbs, and pets that live here."

30. what's happening - This blog has very little to do with Humboldt, from what I can tell, even though it's called what's-happening-humboldt. Turns out this is an extremely radical anti-war blog that is about as even-handed as a Michael Moore film. A casual text search counted the word "murder" 19 times, if that tells you anything.

31. The Visible Hand - This blog's topic appears to be domestic and international business and economic news.

32. hucktunes - Bob Huck, a Eureka musician who also has a number of hucktunes/music-related web sites, maintains this blog which focuses on "Old Time Music" and Old Town Eureka. Bob Huck can probably be found at Has Beans coffee shop in Old Town on Saturday nights.

33. Hasbeans Open Mic - Online since August of 2005, this blog has updates on the Has Beans Open Mic, which takes place every Saturday 6:30-9:30 pm.

34. Vagabond Journalist - Charles Douglas writes this blog, which apprently covers local issues. Charles appears to have some ties to the seemingly defunct Humboldt Sentinel.

35. Velma's World - Velma seems cool enough. She lives in Arcata and writes this blog about knitting and other things. Her quote: "I knit. I crochet. I spin. I read. I frolf. I blog. 'Nuff said.".

36. Humboldt Pride Myspace Blog - Humboldt's Gay Pride blog! Definitely the place to go for event announcements and news regarding Humboldt Pride, Inc. and the Humboldt Pride Parade and Festival on the Arcata Plaza.

37. In My Humboldt Opinion - A personal blog by a Humboldt County resident. Nice photos!

38. Humboldt Forest Defense - This blog has an accurate title. It's the blog for the activist group Forest Ground Support, and seems to be updated frequently.

39. Humboldt Computer Company - "A journal on an endless stream of computer repairs, website designs and wifi installations."

40. The Royal Flush Online - A witty HSU-related blog: "Welcome to the Royal Flush online: your information source for events in the residence hall community."

41. HumCity Blog - "Clubing Humboldt since 72 - HumCity Blog is the ramblings of an indie music loving, working stiff, and wannabe geek living behind the Redwood Curtain in beautiful Humboldt County California"

42. Raven Ridge Gardens - Flowers, gardens, photos! Blogger Christine of Trinidad does a nice job with this blog: "With camera in hand I prowl our botanical jungle, seeking out the everyday lives of plants and critters."

43. 100% Humboldt Hippy - Not entirely sure what's up with this one... looks like a personal blog, but it's getting listed here anyway because it looks interesting...

44. Humboldt State University Government and Politics - "News, events, and other items of interest from the Department of Government and Politics, Humboldt State University, Arcata, California."

45. Humboldt Childbirth - "An On-line Resource For Expectant and New Parents of Humboldt County"

46. Theplacebo.net - Humboldt County youth arts program: "The Placebo is an all-ages music and art collective and a project of the Ink People Center for the Arts"

47. Humboldt County Pride - A Humboldt County LiveJournal. It's usually used by newcomers to ask questions about the area.

48. HSU LiveJournal - Quite similar to the Humboldt County LiveJournal, only the focus is Humboldt State University.

49. Thingamababy - "A Dad's eye view of Baby and Toddler Stuff." The writer of this blog resides in Arcata, and the blog is full of useful product reviews and child-rearing tips. This is probably the most commercialized of all the Humboldt blogs, but it is very well-written and contains valuable information for parents of babies and toddlers.

50. Eco Child's Play - "Natural toys that inspire your child's imagination! A review of developmentally appropriate, ecologically friendly toys for young children." Blog is written by Jennifer Lance: "Preschool teacher, former k-8 teacher (one room schoolhouse), artist-in-schools, early childhood education graduate student, yoga instructor, organic gardener, mother of two small children, vegetarian for 19 years, and living off the grid for 15 years!"

51. madriverbluff.org - "Devoted to the neighborhoods adjacent to the Mad River."

52. corkscrew - "music politics lit art film info overload." Jay Herzog has lived in Humboldt County for more than 10 years.

53. Super Happy Fun Blog - An offensive blog written by a cocky Humboldt County resident who hints that he is involved in some sort of questionable activities. Blogger Anon.R.mous writes offensive rants in an effort to troll the other bloggers for comments. He also enjoys publishing names and addresses of people he doesn't like on his blog. Reading the Super Happy Fun Blog is like stepping into one giant flame war.

54. Daily Kos - Humboldt Jodi writes this blog which covers national politics, issues, and some local events.

55. Christine Cooks - All about cooking delicious food in Humboldt County. Christine must think her blog content is very valuable, because the first descriptive item on the page is this: "All rights reserved. No original content, including text and photos, may be copied, re-located or reproduced, in full or in part, for personal or monetary gain without the express permission of this blog's author."

56. Notes from the North Coast - Meg's summer blog.

58. North Coast Digital Art - Photos, videos, and general digital media focused in Arcata, California.

60. Mendoville - Also perhaps too new to describe--at the time of this writing there were only two posts to this blog.

61. Chocolate Covered Xanax - "Sharing the joy of food, art, love, sex, commentary, gardening, crafts, Abba, alcoholic beverages and a genetic predisposition toward anxiety disorders...."

62. Buservations - A fun blog about business-related observations in Humboldt County by a Humboldt County business person. Sadly, this blog no longer exists.

63. Green Wheels - The Humboldt State University sustainable transportation community. This might be more of a news/info site than an actual blog, but it seems to be updated frequently enough to check up on and read like a blog.

64. This North Coast Place - "reflections on becoming native to this North Coast of California"

65. Stage Matters - "Theatre from the North Coast of California, and beyond...because stage matters. An extension of my Stage Matters column in the North Coast Journal."

66. TLC's Place - "If life were meant to be boring, we would all be living in Disneyland and eating paste. But we chose otherwise. Enjoy and participate actively in this temporary escapade we call 'life'. Adventures are not meant to be spent lounging at the side of the road."

67. The Arcade of Scribes - "Books. Reading. Writing. Politics. Baseball."

68. We Do Not Consent - Dave Berman maintains this blog, which appears to be rather popular despite its very radical tone. Berman's blog used to be at http://guvwurld.blogspot.com/ before he released his book and decided to tie the book into the blog, or the blog into the book... we're not exactly sure which is which.

69. TSBlogs - The Times-Standard's blog site: "The comments and opinions of individual bloggers do not represent the official viewpoint of the Times-Standard. From time to time, along with our regular individual bloggers, we'll be posting limited-time blogs tied to specific breaking events and topical issues." Heh.

City Slow, City Beautiful - Xandra Manns writes: "My blog is about transforming our cities and towns out of pollution and high-speed competition and anxiety into carfree, walkable communities where the air and water are clean, where the revitalized Earth provides us with beautiful landscapes and bountiful food. It is not about abstaining from comfortable living, but about making wise choices to ensure an enjoyable and fulfilling life."

75. Nick Bravo - And where would we be without Nick Bravo? In a much quieter blogosphere, no doubt. but seriously, Bravo is a passionate blogger and thoughtful writer who makes daily appearances on many of the local blogs. He trolls frequently, but he is also the most heavily trolled writer on the scene.

76. Aaron Antrim's Blog - Aaron Atrim's blog.

77. Art Walker Eureka - Gilda Bronze highlights various Eureka artwork with photos and writings in this blog.

78. Flip it off - Writer Jeff Kelley suggests: "Do not rage against the machine, quietly flip it off. This is to be musings on social constructs using the machine as a metaphor. I've written dozen of pages in my head. Now if I can just get some of them typed up."

79. Humboldt Revolution - Watchdog / Activist blog in Humboldt County.

80. Humboldt Coaster - An anti-war blog with, in the words of Heraldo, colors which may "cause bleeding of the retina."

81. Fortuna Forum - Blog is out of date, but the comments area contains an ongoing debate. "This is an open dialogue. You do not need to register or log in to post a comment. Please follow the guidelines upheld during the Fortuna City Council meetings: 'We May Disagree, But We Will Be Respectful of One Another. Personal Attacks are Unacceptable.'"

82. Live Work Dream - Jim and Rene sold their Eureka-based business (Marcom and Pop) a while back and took off across the country pulling a camper behind them. These are their stories.

The Reggae War is the conflict among the Mateel Community Center, People Productions, Carol Bruno, and Thomas Dimmick, as well as the community conflict arising from the same events. Lets find the truth together."

86. Compulsive Proofreader - This blogger is very unique and entertaining. Lots of visuals and quick, fun posts.

88. studiotwoten - "Free All Culture"

89. aaron antrim's blog - A very interesting and informative blog out of Arcata.

90. Humboldtistan Daily News - Pure. Freaking. Genius. This blog is a newcomer to the scene, but if you aren't already reading it, well, you're seriously missing out on something huge. Do not read another blog before you have checked this one out.

92. What it's really like... - "A rebuttal of what ever you 'learn' about Eureka from a science fiction TV series entitled EUReKA, written by a resident who has lived in a community near Eureka, California since 1999, but who doesn't really have any investment in either Eureka or EUReKA."

98. Sister Golden Hair - Penned by Nate's wife (see above), this blog is all about pregnancy, babies, pregnancy, and life in a Christian family.

100. Glory of Kings - Online since July 2007, Jesse Broussard of Loleta, California posts to this blog very frequently to discuss books, school, life, poetry, and more. Or rather, "Musings on Scripture from a Trinitarian worldview."

This journal is written by me, a college student at Humboldt State University, and will consist of stories and pictures of my explorations throughout the county. My main goal is to keep friends outside of the area updated and the side goal is to keep track of all my interesting findings."

111. Humboldt Happenings - "Foosh" of Eureka writes about Life happenings, music, funny stuff,whatever tickles my fancy really."

112. Blue Voice - Another blog by Captain Future. This one is about music, books, life, and some other things. Lots of reading, but worth the time.

133. Bob Flame, Ranger - A somewhat nostalgic park ranger, Mr. Flame says "You'll find the occasional book review here, or political rant, local or national, or Red Sox update. Good food. Good wine. Good beer. Good coffee (not Starbucks). Good books. What else does a middle-aged guy need?"

143. The Humboldt Mirror - "...brought to you by a couple of Hum Town locals with a passion for truth, justice and ball-breaking small-town politics. We're not so far left that we don't have jobs, and not so far right that we don't have ethics."

144. Life in Arcata - A personal account of Jenn's day to day life in Arcata. I like this blog because it reads easily and has interesting descriptions of Humboldt County living.

These are all extreme sport activities that are performed with one or more dogs."

149. Positive Blogging - Not the most in-depth Humboldt blog, this TS publication is only updated once every two weeks with very short quotes and thoughts aimed at thinking positive.

162. Above the Law - "Frank Serpico", an anonymous Eureka police officer, pens this blog, which is generally reporting inside information from the police department in hopes of inciting some change in regards to the inner workings of the EPD. Definitely controversial and juicy.

169. Katieaceae - Katie appears to be a teaching student in Utah (BYU) who is in Arcata for the summer. Her blog includes many, many photos, and is probably intended for friends and family, but hey she lives in Arcata now so her blog gets listed here.

170. people suck, basically - "Two rural girls with urban snark who don't back down. Except from cuddling."

Not recently updated

These blogs may have kicked the bucket, but they're still online, so listed they shall be!

Buhne Tribune - Now offline, the Buhne Tribune was a blog written by Ryan Hurley, aka Capt. Buhne (please don't confuse with the real Captain Buhne). The BT took a sensationalist approach to reporting on the local news, and generally stuck with clever quips linking to local news outlets. Hurley wrote the blog anonymously until May of 2007 when his identity was revealed in the local newspaper. Since then, Hurley has deleted the Buhne Tribune, and is now rumored to be the anonymous author of the North Coast Post.

North Coast Post - Covered local news and current events with inside info that could only have come from a reporter for The Reporter. That's right, new clues have come to light and we have determined that The Postmaster was none other than Rebecca S. Bender. She has since moved out of the area and has resigned her blogging position here in Humboldt.

Axis of Drivel

Arkleywatch

Women on Wednesday

Eureka Greens - "Welcome to the home of Green-oriented free speech! We invite all populist-oriented bloggers who hold the Ten Key Values dear to join a real, adult discussion about issues that matter. All registered Greens living in the Greater Eureka area are invited to open a Blogger account and help co-create this site. Any inappropriate postings or comments will be removed."

Fat Guys on Film

Humboldt Professional Wiffle Association - See blog title.

Humboldt Showcase - Was intended to be a business-related blog with business news highlights and perhaps some commentary, but looks like it never took off.

Humboldt Corruption - A slightly out-of-date blog about, you guessed it, corruption in Humboldt County.

mresquan - "Life here in Humboldt can be hectic. Who owns and runs this place anyway?The local media has little true voice to help us common folk,neither do our elected officials. The best of both are afraid to do anything,they get mobbed when they try to.This is a chance for honest and open dialogue.I would prefer to stay on cue with local jargon,but slipping to other venues never hurts.Despite what some folks tend to believe,national decisions can wreak havoc on our community. Stay informed."

Did we miss any?

If you have a Humboldt County related blog and it's not listed here please post it here or email us and we will be happy to add your additions to the list.

Whoa! Thanks for the update, Heraldo, that's a good list of additions. I'll update the post in just a few minutes.

Regarding the North Coast Post, my sources indicate that Hurley is very likely the author, but I don't have hard evidence at this time. I think I need to hear it from Ryan himself, or at least hear/see some sort of real evidence proving his involvement or lack thereof.

Regardless, the NCP is well done and whoever writes it should be proud. What's with all the anonymity anyway?

A musician friend of mine told me about an encounter with a local blogger just a few weeks ago - long after the Buhne Tribune was taken off line. The blogger handed my friend his card and lo-and-behold - it was Ryan Hurley! I even saw the card.

Now, this doesn't mean nothin' 'bout nothin', but if you put two and two together, Capt. Buhne is still blogging somewhere.

I didn't read the Buhne Tribune much and I can't say I've been to the North Coast Post very often, but after reading just one post on NCP it's hard not to notice that the blogger has the same writing style as Capt. Bunhe - even if the voice is different. He's the only local blogger I've read that requires its reader to know as much as he does about the topics at hand. His unique allusive writing style reads as distinctive as his fingerprint.

Not to mention... Bhune Tribune --- North Coast Post

If you say them both aloud they roll off the tongue like twins!

Either way, nothing reads better than a blog that gets updated often!

I just discovered your blog list and would like to thank you for the hard work you put into its creation. I'll place a link to it on both of my blogs.
As to your description about the self-importance of my cooking blog, Christine Cooks, I have no such delusion. The entire contents of both my blogs have been "scraped" in the past. I placed the copyright declaration in my sidebars to, hopefully, deter any future infringement.

The hardest one to shut down was located in Monterey, CA. It took a lot of sleuthing (someone else did this on my behalf) to actually get the blog owner's url and then report it. The site was effectively removed.
The other one was somewhere in the southern states and an email demanding that they cease and desist was all it took.
Putting copyright on my photos and text seems to have done the trick as, to my knowledge, I haven't been scraped since these two incidents.

What a fantastic (and comprehensive) list!

I'd like to add my own blog (Arcata-based), which I have recently begun to update much more frequently, at http://aaron.arcatacommunity.org/blog .

I noticed that you included Green Wheels, which was a nice surprise for me. As part of our move out of campus club status and into larger non-profit status, we have a new website at www.green-wheels.org . You'll find an actual blog section that's much more frequently updated than anything we've done in the past.

Thanks again for the great list. I've linked to it from my blog.

I allowed myself to edit your message to fix the links. The periods at the end were interpreted as dots in your URLs. You're welcome -Olivier

It seems I was wrong about the North Coast Post's author. I know, Heraldo tried to tell me, but without giving any names, so I stuck to my guns. Now the cat is, apparently, out of the bag, or at least mostly out. While having drinks with friends last weekend at the Plaza Grill, I stumbled upon the Postmaster's true identity. Rebecca S. Bender, a news writer for the Eureka Reporter, has been identified as the author or the North Coast Post. Bender has since left the area, and yeah I'm probably the last person to discover this, but hey it was fun. Sorry to see that blog go, too...

Thanks for mentioning "From the Back Pew." You're correct, I don't very often talk about Humboldt County (or Ferndale) specifically -- I was born here, Ferndale High, etc., and then lived and worked for 35 years in Los Angeles and New York before inheriting the farm and coming home ... so my comments on, mostly, current events has been formed by that perspective. I'm eager to read the other blogs you've listed. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting.

Wow ok, I finally got to the TS Blogs and listed most of them. The TS blogs that I did not include were omitted because I could not find any content on them. Perhaps they do not display correctly with FireFox, or maybe it's some other technical issue, but I don't want to list blogs that don't render correctly under all web browsers. I'll check back and add the rest when the problem gets sorted out.

Thanks for stopping by, and sorry it took so long to get all the TS blogs listed.

Darsh! This was very helpful. I just moved back into the area after being in Sonoma for nine years.
This was so nice to come home to. The local blogs of Humboldt County. Thank you!

Wow, I just discovered this list via a link on Redheaded Blackbelt, just one of the blogs I read every day. Now I see I have much more reading to do, and some of the blogs on the list you have thoughtfully compiled are sure to be added to my daily fare. Thank you!

Could you possibly add my blog, the Bitten Apple, karolsapple.blogspot.com ?

It's relatively new (since June) and somewhat eclectic. I'm a mom, editor, grad student and aspiring writing teacher, who just likes to think and write about things.

Hi again, got interrupted. As I said, my old blog Artists for Hillary is now defunct. I am about to take it down. My new blog: http://claireirisschencke.blogspot.com/

I've been blogging at www.NorthCoastGardening.com for about two years now. I've sponsored the Trinidad Garden Show's web presence and have been featured in Amy Stewart's garden column in the Journal as well as her blogs Garden Rant and Dirt. My site's also been named of one Sunset Magazine's Top Five Pacific Northwest Blogs. Aaaand, my site's currently ranked #10,335th among readers in the San Francisco area, according to Alexa. I'd love to be added to the list!

I'm off to check out a couple blogs that were new to be... lovely to see what other locals are doing.

Thanks for compiling this - what an effort!

I'd never put Erik's blog at the head of any Humboldt County blog list because the guy's another political huckster from out of town come here for career advancement off of creating political and economic war on Humboldt County anchor businesses. These Progs and enviros are out to destroy Humboldt County's economy as they attack and bring down our anchor businesses and never replace them with work for Humboldt County workers. Same with stores that cater to the poor. Attack, attack, attack. Meanwhile, the attackers sit pretty on their grants and pot contributor's donations. Erik's part this crew of Humboldt County economy and community destroyers-why promote them and their anti-community agendas?
