Links of Interest for April 9th, 2008

What a day it was in blogville (and its suburb, Twitter-ville) today, eh? We had some amazing blog goodness, particularly from Eye on Blogs, CurbedSF, SFist and Fog City Journal, among others.
For today’s Links of Interest, however, we’ll take a step away from the rush-rush of the day’s events and focus on some blogs that take a look at urban life through a MUNI-esque lens. I’ve found all of them to be quite entertaining in that observational kind of way.
I caught TangoBaby’s blog via Google News alerts, and her photo essay on the commute, via the Mighty N, was a nice find. She also did an entertaining post on the reading habits of those of us commuting on the N.
Likewise, if you’ve not read the dispatches by Rachel over at Fog City Notes, you’re missing out on the kind of “as it happens” commentary I used to do more of when I started this blog a while back. And it’s thanks to her I also discovered No Line Left Behind, which is an entertaining ride on all the MUNI lines. Her notes as she makes various stops are quite illuminating. I remember years ago reading about a group of people who decided to ride every line on MUNI over a Labor Day Weekend, but have yet to find the article….
Two other observational blogs I’ve caught on Google Alerts are I Ride MUNI and the awesomely named Stepdown, Stepdown. Both offer yet more eyes on the daily grind that is MUNI, and both are fun to read.
Remember, you can always find our ongoing Links of Interest by clicking on the subject heading in the right column. It’s better than trying to cram all the awesome links into a giant column, and you also get a little background on each site as well!
