It’s a new year, and time to spruce up my blogroll, tossing out any who haven’t posted in ages.
And I’ll be adding one, “Palmetto Public Record,” which has chosen an interesting time to launch.
It apparently is the work of one Logan Smith, who describes himself thusly:
Palmetto Public Record founding editor Logan Smith has been covering South Carolina politics for over half a decade as a reporter and online producer for WIS-TV in Columbia. A graduate of the University of South Carolina with a degree in Electronic Journalism, Logan also reported on the State House for the School of Journalism’s Carolina News program. When Logan isn’t glued to a computer screen or wandering around the Capitol complex, you can usually find him running or cycling on the streets of Columbia.
Sounds like a member of Boyd Brown’s generation. A major in “Electronic Journalism?” Do tell. When I started out, we were still using Linotype machines.
Here’s hoping Logan is made as welcome as I was by the nascent SC blogging community, back when I started in 2005.
I haven’t seen any ads on his site yet, so I can with an unconflicted mind offer him the same blessing as the Godfather did Sollozzo: “I know you’ll do very well; and good luck to you… as your interests don’t conflict with my interests.”
