As a blog writer, I have come to appreciate other well done blogs out there on the internet. Obsessed, I am reading more on my computer than I ever though I would, and I have a real love affair going with Google Search. I find myself very unhappy if I am in a place that I can’t “google” something up that may come up in a conversation. Thank God for my Android phone and my iPad, (yes…I am a geek). From time to time I will become particularly interested in writings about my city of Albuquerque, and I would like to share some of the best of Albuquerque blogs for people visiting or maybe thinking of moving to the Albuquerque area.
When I travel somewhere I will usually do a lot of research before I go. I like to know the local food and drinking haunts, the hot local political issues, and to see in pictures and words as much about where I am going as I can before I get there. The following blogs are my hand picked inside views of Albuquerque that anyone who is, or may be coming to Albuquerque in the future will want to peruse. They are not in any particular order. Please enjoy!
Simply titled “Travels” Kimm takes you on a visual journey of places to hike and more – a most beautiful photo blog that artistically captures some of the most photogenic places in and around Albuquerque. If Kimm can’t get you up and out the door with her photos, nobody can.
Gil’s Thrilling (and Filling) Blog
Gil Garduño takes you on a journey too, and his reviews on New Mexico eating establishments is by far the best I have seen. If you want to look up a restaurant in the Land of enchantment – go here first.
Duke City Fix
The Duke City Fix was started by one of our guests who moved here from Chicago quite a few years ago. She embraced everything “Burque” with a passion I have never seen before, or since. She knew there were others out there that shared her passion, so she created this forum for people to write about and discuss all things Albuquerque – good and bad. This blog forum is a must for anyone who ever thought they might want to make Albuquerque their home, as well as anyone who already lives here and doesn’t know about this nationally recognized gem of cyberspace.
The New Mexico Independent
Not actually an Albuquerque blog, but I must mention this fantastic venue of only news and stories that are important to New Mexicans. They have a great online format that makes it very easy to use and peruse what is important to the reader. See the heartbeat of New Mexico as it’s beating.
Albuquerque Daily Photo
Helen has not posted in a while, but I’m sure she’ll be back. Don’t skip this insightful and pleasing array of photo’s from around the Duke City. Page after page of animals, abstracts, locations and events will give you a good feel for what Albuquerque is about.
I will continue to seek out quality blogs that may be of interest to my reader, and report back.
I know the best things to do in Albuquerque, and if I don’t…I know someone who does!
