Blogroll Adds

For the New Year, some revisions on the blogroll. "Burying" dead blogs, and some ads (and these are not all blogs).

One of the points of the blogroll was to feature city, "city culture" or urbanist blogs on Dayton.

As there are very few local blogs of this type most of these adds deal with local art/music/creative things, plus a house blog and two local history websites.


A beef is there is no really comprehensive page for live music. I’ve added “Dayton Shows” as it has a good indy angle, but even they miss a few. One can following Myspace Music, but there isn’t a good aggregator page yet for all the myspace show notes on individual band and venue pages


Defunct or Presumed Dead
