Think Global, Blog Local
While outsiders to Pomona like to count our homicides, I prefer to count our blogs. The Pomona Blog Epidemic of 2008 is upon us. As I have had to turn my attention away from my own blog, others have been lighting up Pomona's information alleyways with their own blogs. Pomona has 14 blogs by my count. I've added a new blog roll to my side bar which includes them all, in order of most recent post. As there is likely someone firing up a new Pomona blog as I type, please forgive me if my list is already out of date.
Ugly Stepsister Claremont is pathetically behind the ball on this one, having only four blogs that I know of (Sid's Side, Claremont Insider and two coming out of the Claremont Colleges). I'm sure they'll correct me if I'm wrong. Ontario has one blog that I know of: the Ontario Emperor A.K.A. the hipper Mr. Ontemps. (Sorry, blogger's link feature isn't working, otherwise I'd redirect you to those blogs.) I know of no blogs out of San Dimas, La Verne or Chino Hills, nor have I yet to see a Phillips Rancher or Rancherita blog.
Recently I discovered that Pomona, CA.'s sister city of Pomona, MO. (whose watertower is today's photograph), also has a blog. You'll have to get there yourself:
Check out the Pomona Posts' entries entitled "Town Pride or Arrogance" and "Watertower Serves as Strong Reminder," which show that Pomona, MO. shares both Pomona, CA.'s name and our fabled inferiority complex.
And here is the rest of it.
