Rick (Formerly of Stuck on the Palmetto) Has A New Blog
Hooray! Our friend, Rick, is launching a new blog. The name of the site is The South Florida Daily Blog, it aims to be a meeting place for people interested in things happening around South Florida. I’m sure it will be a success. Building a loyal community is something Rick knows a lot about.
Here is what Rick has to say bout is the new venture…
For those who don’t know, Rick, and his blogging partner, Alex, used to publish the critically acclaimed website, Stuck on the Palmetto, until a “journalist” named Bob Norman from New Times threatened to expose Rick’s professional life.
Rather than jeopardize his professional career, Rick choose to close Stuck on the Palmetto, much to the dismay of his many readers.
The episode brought out a very ugly side of the Miami blogging community.
If you got time to wade through all the comments, you can read about the incident at Critical Miami.
When Rick and I had dinner and discussed his new blog, he said “for the most part, it’s going to be me commenting and directing readers where to go for the good stuff in South Florida blogging.” He also mentioned posting will be pretty much limited to the beginning and the ending of each day, but he will bring back some of the recurring articles that his readers had grown to love.
As of now, there’s just a Google Page announcing the site is coming soon. Rick will begin posting on February 4th.
On the Google Page, Rick mentions “spotlighting the controversial,” but I wonder if he will be pulling any punches? After seeing how he was treated by the so-called “real journalists,” I sure can understand being gun-shy to post his true feelings on sensitive issues.
