Carnival of the New Jersey Bloggers #1

This is our first Carnival of the New Jersey bloggers. If our readers enjoy the format, we’ll try to make a habit of it every Sunday. All Jersey bloggers are welcome to submit links for future Carnivals, just send us an email.

Roberto at DynamoBuzz does a great job of covering the nuts and bolts of New Jersey politics and points us to the latest Quinnipiac poll on the Republican candidates for governor and a Bret Schundler profile. He shows his softer side too, with this post.

Sluggo has dropped out of the governor’s race and has thrown his support to Bret Schundler. Sluggo Needs a Nap because of all the work required to achieve this major blog milestone. Congratulations.

Speaking of being in need of a nap, when does Fausta the author of Bad Hair Blog ever have time to sleep? From her base in Princeton, she covers the globe - Iraq, Spain, Great Britain, France, Brazil, Venezuela and U.S energy policy, media, movies. Oh, and New Jersey and ….

Property Tax NJ is a link-o-matic to articles on this ever popular subject and keeps us up-to-date on the progress of the constitutional convention in the legislature. Ken Adams at SmadaNeK in Burlington County is still waiting to hear from the gubernatorial candidates about the the Columns and he’s becoming impatient. New to blogging, NJ Conservative provides examples of our state’s out-of-control judges and politicans.

PDC Ryan, blogging at If this is paradise, I wish I had a lawn-mower, warns of the secret subsidy in cities like his hometown of Jersey City. Mr. Snitch covers the Hoboken beat and reprints a neighbor’s letter to the editor - "I would like to support Senator Corzine [for governor], but...". Tim Hill at the Atlantic Higland Muse writes Let's Play Jeopardy!

That reminds us, Ken Jennings will be back this coming week on Jeopardy’s Ultimate Tournament of Champions.

The ever humorous Jim at Parkway Rest Stop has a link to a must see video of Norwegian soldiers in Kosovo doing a takeoff on the Beach Boys’ “Kokomo”. Don’t miss Jim’s daughter blogging at Twisty asking for advice on handling requests for donations. While on the other hand, you can click on over to the Tomato Nation for some fresh from the vine TN advice.

John Beck at INCITE thinks Huffington's Toast and spars with a reader. Advantage Beck.

Jersey Beat is looking for talented, creative, artistic, clever, DIY people to design a Jersey Beat button. The Proprietor at Coffee Grounds is branding New Jersey’s towns and My Life as a Rabid Blog reminds us of the pleasures we are not allowed anymore. Patrick at Jersey Style has an AH HA! moment.

We had wondered where this picture was taken and now we know - Montclair. Thanks to the Barista of Bloomfield Avenue who posted a more recent shot of the marquee. Frenchtown NJ Blog gives us a photo tour of New York City - helpful for those out-of-town guests that want the NYC tour.

From our most famous bloggers: Gigglechick of MSNBC fame, is pondering a redesign of her slick looking site and Kate recently featured on CNN, continues to delight readers with blogging about life with her husband and two daughters at Kate Spot. Mary's Lame Attempt at Fame is well on her way with the live blogging skills she displays with her American Idol post. Our fingers don’t move fast enough to live blog.

Suzette, at the most appropriately named blog, The Garden State writes “this garden thing - you either do it, or you blog it - not both.” She’s decided to do it, but you can still catch her blogging as The Soup Lady over at the Joy of Soup and as Suzette at her main blog, Cripes, Suzette!

Shamrocket has a very professional and attractive site. We’d say that even if all of the Enlighten-NewJersey bloggers were not of Irish decent. Anyway, we are predisposed to taking her advice: “And if any of you blog writers out there want to increase traffic to your site, try complaining about Microsoft.”

Thank you Enlighten, thank you!!

At 2:23 PM, Blogger Mr. Snitch said...

You guys beat me by inches - I was going to start a weekly round-up of Jersey blogs this very weekend. I may still do it for other Hoboken blogs, but I'll just point readers to your site if you're going to continue this much-needed feature.

At 6:01 PM, Blogger Sluggo said...

Great job, guys. I didn't even know about some of these blogs.

At 7:40 PM, Anonymous Kate said...

What a fabulous idea! I am looking forward to participating for next week.

At 2:45 PM, Blogger Glass House said...

Thank you Enlighten NJ....This was great fun...enjoyed learning about the other NJ blogs and your lead in to each was great. Thanks again.

At 3:39 AM, Blogger Beck said...

I like the concept. Nice work guys. Oh, and thanks for the link!

At 8:44 PM, Blogger Suzette said...

Thanks for the bump.
Have you considered The Face of Tilly (Asbury Park) or perhaps the FoodCircus Clown (Middletown) as a logo for the Carnival of NJ bloggers?

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
Microsoft outlook 2010Whom elite liberals are pulling for really does shape political coverage in ways
