A Sad Day in the Atlanta Sector of the Blogosphere!


I began blogging after reading an article in Southern Voice about C. Baptiste-Williams. The article focused on the best of Atlanta and Baptiste-Williams’ blog, HISstory was named a must-read blog. Well, I read the blog and realized that he offered a perspective and an insight I, and the world at large, needed. I then discovered his favorite blogs and the rest is history.

Well, today I read that C. Baptiste-Williams will be leaving Atlanta to return home to D.C. First Dayne Avery and now this…

At most parties and night spots I frequent, I am fortunate enough to see Baptiste-Williams. He gives you a little shade, trust me, but he will definitely be missed. Through his opionated, well-written, timely, and provocative writing, Baptiste-Williams has helped many appreciate Atlanta and understand the city I love.

I will miss his perspective on my city and on the events that link us Atlantans together. Things in Atlanta and in the Atlanta sector of the blogosphere will not be the same.

It's weird reading these blogs. You feel like you really know these people.
