Blogging Alaska-Style

If Alaskans have complained in the past that we're overlooked by the rest of the nation - the old "Can you use American currency there?" and "Do you need a passport?" routines - we've got no business complaining now. Palin as VP pick; Palin as soon-to-be grandma (mom yet unwed); Palin target of legislative investigation; Stevens on trial this month on seven federal charges; Don Young and Sean Parnell still duking it out almost a week after the primary.

No shortage of attention here. And new on the scene among Alaskan writers is the Alaska Dispatch, brainchild of well-published freelancers Amanda Coyne and Tony Hopfinger. They feature a nice variety of opinions and original reporting.

Any other mention-worthy Alaskan blogs out there?
