For the initial posting to our self styled Greenwich Magazine, I thought I would take a look at the blogosphere and see what existing sites there are covering the goings on in Greenwich.
The Greenwich Phantom keeps her identity secret but writes a popular Greenwich blog with a wide assortment of news, events and seems to take a special interest in what she describes as "mostly accurate history". Frequently updated and always worth a look.
Darryl's 853 blog - with 853 being a nod to the old Greenwich dialling prefix - is also a must read and regularly updated with topical posts, including the odd (constructive) moan about Greenwich Council and Greenwich Time.
By the way, I've found that if you mention Greenwich Time, someone called "Jim" pops up to defend it as the best thing since sliced bread. Hi Jim!
Greenwich Council used to get a fair amount of close scrutiny from Greenwich Watch but they announced a break from posting in July 2008. This political blog perhaps had its biggest moment when it led the way on the story relating to the controversial AEG bid to build a Las Vegas style casino on the Greenwich Peninsula.
Save Greenwich Park is a multi authored blog primarily concerned with the plans to host 2012's equestrian events in Greenwich Park.
The Greenwich Gazette is another useful Greenwich Blog which is being regularly updated with events and stuff that's happening in Greenwich.
Did we miss a great Greenwich (or nearby) blog? Use the comments section to tell us what you think of these blogs or to recommend one that we missed out.
Updated: We've now created a new page aggregating the latest headlines from Greenwich blogs.
