Words. They’re not just for professionals anymore.
Here are a few of the local bloggers we’ve been reading:

Eating Cleveland


I Rock Cleveland

Never trust skinny people to recommend food.


... with all due hardness.
Those for whom culinary bliss skews more pierogi than pâté, more heavy cream than crème brûlée (If you got excited about the expansion at Melt Bar and Grilled, it’s for you).

Target Audience

Indie rock-loving twentysomethings (and those of us a decade older who love the music, but are starting to sour on a 9 p.m. start time for a weeknight, three-band show.)
Mark will lambaste an East Side spot’s “half-assed” $16 chicken breast, then weigh the corned beef sandwich he picked up at Harvard Deli (1 pound, 3.2 ounces).

The Hook

Bill, a Lakewood-based music fanatic, weeds through the morass of indie rock bands and finds the best stuff so you don’t have to.
He shares recipes of tasty dishes he’s made at home, like a recent batch of panzenella (mmmm ... bread salad).

What’s In It For You

Free downloads (usually at least one for each post) that’ll keep your iPod stocked, and links to 40 of the city’s most relevant bands.
Three to four a week, but there are routinely a trio of posts during a single 24-hour period.

Post Frequency

Three to four a week
Symon Says:
We loved reading about chef Michael Symon’s holiday brunch (complete with blood sausage) and what it’s like being an Iron Chef. But, please, more frequent posts, Mike!

Political Science 216: Smart, irreverant coverage of local politics, and you get to vote on pressing issues such as who is the hottest news reporter in the city. You’ll bookmark it.

Hey, Larry Hughes, Please, Stop Taking So Many Bad Shots: Dedicated to the shooting percentage and other stats of Cavaliers guard Larry Hughes. The good news: It says please doesn’t it?
