Spokane Blogs: Help Build the List

Once upon a time I went on a hunt for Spokane blogs, assuming someone would have compiled a comprehensive list. Couldn't find one so I started a spreadsheet. When I first posted it as an editable Google Doc sometime in 2010 it had 105 blogs.

As of January 19, 2013, the list was at 270 and growing. At that point I had been living in Seattle for six months and stopped maintaining the list. I leave it live for whatever utility it may have.

If you're on Twitter, follow @SpokaneBlogs for an RSS feed of posts.

I've created a Facebook page with feeds from the active blogs so you can get Spokane blog updates in your news stream there, if you like. 

Who did I miss? Use the form below to provide information on blogs you don't see on the list, or send an email to spokaneblogsATgmail.com with the information requested in the form. I don't monitor the email account very often and it is not a way to reach me for a conversation.

  2. Cool find, Lucas--thanks!

    I should also note that I went looking mostly for personal blogs, not corporate ones. A few business ones found their way onto the list through the magic of having "Spokane" and "blog" somehow in their name (real estate folks are particularly good at this--although not all of them have kept their blogs active).

    I don't want to leave the corporate blogs out, so feel free to add those too. They just tend to have names where the root URL is the company name and /blogs or something like it is in the full path so they don't show up as easily in a Google search.

  6. Permission is now open to anyone who has the link; I pasted the URL without realizing it would be a different URL once I tweaked the permission.

    Hank, you shame me--I subscribe to about half the blogs you listed and didn't manage to get them on the list! Thanks so much for all of these. I've updated the spreadsheet.

    (Also quite funny that I left *this* blog off the list....)

    Onward.

    The hyperlink-holes seem to start at #87.

    Here is the correct one, or you can use the blogspot address below.

  20. I have followed you on Twitter (1WeeSpark) and I'm hoping you will help me raise awareness about a new recovery group...the first in the country of its kind! I hope that we can get the word out to everyone in Spokane...because I know that there are others who could use this group! Thanks!

  22. I've tried adding my blog to the form twice and have yet to see it.

  23. @LaotianMama,

    I'll clarify in the text above--

    Using the form to submit the blog doesn't automatically post it to this page. I review the back-end form periodically and verify that the blog is genuinely a Spokane blog and the link works. (You'd be surprised--sometimes it doesn't and I have to go sleuthing.)

    I do the updates in batches and haven't done one in a while; I'll get to it soon.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Barb, I saw your post about culling the blog list for inactive blogs and I'm sure mine is one of those - www.spokanehomesblog.com. I've recommitted to the site and have the first update in the works. If there is a way to make sure I'm not removed from the list I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

  33. Looks like you have tons of great lists here. I have heard lots of great things about the emmrod pack rod. I am thinking of getting one for my husband. I think he will love it. I guess if I purchase one then we are going to have to head that direction for a fishing trip.
