Check Us Out on Washingtonian's "Blogger Beat"

The Washingtonian's "Blogger Beat" interviewed us recently about our blog. While we'd hardly consider ourselves "experts" on all things Logan, we're beyond thrilled that people might be gaining some modicum of value from our (occasionally incoherent) raves, rants and rumblings. At any rate, we enjoyed giving our answers to the interview questions, and I'm glad Mrs. 14thandYou is up to speed on the shopping in the area, 'cause I'm sure not.

Those looking for a few insights into the lives of the 14thandYous (such as: why do we like Ethiopian food so much?) can gain valuable insight by going here: http://www.washingtonian.com/blogarticles/people/capitalcomment/9262.html I can't promise any tabloid-ready fodder, but you will find out stuff like what our favorite bar is. Juicy stuff, indeed.

Thanks to Emily from the Washingtonian for filtering through our ramblings for meaningful answers, and to Chris for patiently taking our photo while watching us gorge ourselves on a tray of veggies and beef tibs. You've given me something I can email to mom and dad, and for that I will forever be grateful.

First off congrats on a great profile and a great nod for the hood. Thank you for the mention and I look forward to meeting you both in person soon.

Lame. Washingtonian shouldn't waste ink on a blog that commonly goes 5+ days without posting.

Mr. 14th & You said...

Glad you think so highly of us, anonymous. We appreciate your blogging efforts as well!

OffSeventh said...

Anon...guess that whole employment thing should take a backseat huh? Trust me I know I would love to blog for a living but it ain't happening...

Ah, supports comes in from OffSeventh - a blog that posts even less frequently. Lately the sporadic posts are only to spew hate about city politicians. He also rails anyone who comments in his threads if he doesn't agree and invades their privacy by looking up their domain and ip addresses.

Mr. 14th & You said...

If you have issues with OffSeventh anon, take it up on his blog, not here. And start posting with a name or I'll start removing your comments. We like to keep the comments open to everyone, but not if they devolve into personal attacks.

is there a requirement that you post every few days? then heck, mr. anonymous, you should hate my blog. i went over a month without posting recently. i hang my head in shame...

Here's an anon who doesn't go out of his way to spew hate! I'm glad you guys are getting coverage. You could be a little more positive about the neighborhood sometimes - not artificially, but rather seeing the positive side of things - but this "anon" appreciates the effort that goes into the blog. Keep it up.
