One local blogger who's been at it longer than most of us (except perhaps Zadzooks?) is Greg McElhatton. I never link to Greg's Read About Comics! site because he runs reviews of comics, and I tend to mostly note news and happenings here. That is a stupid reason, but it has the advantage of being the truth. It's still lame. So here's Greg's description of his site, just as he puts a notice up that he's taking a break for SPX:
Welcome to Read About Comics! Read About Comics’s goal is to help keep you informed and updated on comics of all shapes, styles, sizes, and genres. Hopefully there will be a little something for everyone here, no matter what sort of comics you enjoy reading. Read About Comics is written and produced by Greg McElhatton.
Greg McElhatton was a founding contributing writer to Wizard: The Guide to Comics, providing interviews and articles on a regular basis between issues #1 and 58. He has served on the Small Press Expo Steering Committee since 1997, and was Executive Director for the 2002 and 2003 shows. Between 1999 and 2006 he wrote 1000 reviews for iComics.com. He has served as a judge for the Eisner Awards, wrote the monthly “Things to Come” column for just over two years at Ninth Art, and contributed an essay to St. Martin’s Press’ The Year’s Best Graphic Novels, Comics & Manga in 2005. Outside of comics his fiction has been published by Penguin Putnam and Barnes & Noble. In his spare time he runs marathons.
Since he's taking a break, that gives you all a chance to go through and read everything he's posted so far.
I've also added some links to local sites, including Greg's to the far right list.
