Blabbeando in the news

Is it me or is Gay City News sporting a brand new logo? Spiffy, if you ask me.

That's not all, today's issue - already posted on-line - has an article by Andy Humm on the Reverend Ruben Diaz, Sr. (Ruben Diaz Agnostic on Mayor's Race) in which Diaz confirms that he will not be making an endorsement in the race, as he had told El Diario La Prensa a few days back as I reported earlier (the article also raises interesting issues about the Bloomberg campaign's refusal to answer questions on their own homophobic endorsers while trying to play up the tepid Diaz connection to Ferrer - so go read it now).

This week I have been a little stunned by how many people have come up to me and told me they've read my blog. Sometimes you don't realize how public a space this can actually be. It's fun to use PubSub to figure out if others are linking to your blog. Otherwise how was I to know that The Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School took a liking to my post on Chile's LGBT pride?

This article, though, is the first time that Blabbeando has been quoted in the press although, alas, not by name. Pretty cool, no?

Now, remember that front-page New York Blade article which was purportedly about "New York's blogging elite" but actually turned out to bee one big free ad for the launch of Queerty? Well, both Queerty and Jossip have been down for a few hours. It's not that we are wishing them bad luck but what's up?

UPDATE: Glad to report that Queerty is back Though Jossip seems to still be on the blink. A legend on the Jossips site says:
As you've noticed, Jossip is offline due to some web hosting issues. We're as unhappy as you are, but leave the bitching to our hosting provider to us. Trust — they're getting enough from our mouth as it is. We hope to be back on shortly, and by "shortly" we mean yesterday. You'll be the first we tell, we promise. Thanks so much for your patience! Should you need to reach us for any reason, the email as always is
