Best of Miami 2013 Preview: Best Blog
Great news, Miami. Next week, our latest Best of Miami issue hits the stands, and it is a galactic-sized monster, packed with more than 330 picks for the Magic City's greatest restaurants, bars, clubs, people and places. The issue hits stands next Thursday and the web next Tuesday, but in the meantime we're previewing a few select winners. Today: Best Blog.
Best Blog: Transit Miami
In most towns, a blog about transportation would be a snore, but this is Miami. Our shared frustration over the simple task of getting from point A to point B makes our blood boil and unites us all in common ire, for our inane transport system might be the single biggest hurdle preventing the Magic City from becoming a truly world-class town. Surprisingly, it's an issue that often finds itself on the back burner among Miami's media.
Thankfully there's Transit Miami, which has been churning out posts on everything from crosswalks to major Department of Transportation projects since 2006. It's transportation-activist talk made accessible to the average man, and its multiple contributors take into account the perspectives of everyone from drivers to pedestrians. In a world where blogging is now dominated by the need for traffic (the profitable web variety), it's nice to know there's a blog out there more interested in vehicular traffic.
