I’m tentatively toying with the idea of doing a year-end Best Posts of 2008 feature to highlight some of the great things happening in the country music blogosphere. The list would probably focus on the indies (The 9513, Country Universe, etc.) rather than the corporate blogs (CMT and the like). There’s still a lot of year left and this is still very much just an idea, but I’d like to solicit some early feedback.
What do you think are the most memorable or noteworthy blog posts of 2008? When you look back at this year, what will you remember? If you wanted to convince some skeptical friend that the blogworld is more than an ugly step-cousin to the professional world of print, what posts would you use to make your point? We’re looking for the best of the best.
The volume of posts is such that the vast majority will necessarily go unmentioned. Don’t let it get you down. If you think you’ve been unfairly omitted, plug your own post. We’re not voting, so you won’t throw off any official tabulation or anything. The whole point is to call attention to deserving posts others might have missed the first time around or forgotten about in the intervening weeks or months.
I’m sure I’ll think of more later. In the meantime, what say you?
