It’s been a long, sometimes hard road, but thanks to your support Stuck Inside of Knoxville was named Best Blog in Knoxville for 2013. It was also honorable mention for best webpage and for best Facebook page. (Why not follow that link right now and check it out – or at least “like” the page on the right-hand side of this screen.) Many of you have been with me from the beginning nearly three years ago and I really appreciate the encouragement, editing and general support along the way. I believe, and hope you agree that we have become a pretty cool community.
I’m guessing many of you are visiting for the first time after finding the link on Metro Pulse. You are probably wondering, “Stuck inside of Knoxville?” What kind of crazy name is that and what is this all about? I hope you will take the time to look around, read a few older posts and search for Knoxville-related topics in the dialog box to the right of this post. If you have any interest in downtown Knoxville, I think you will find some worthwhile reading there. If you want to look at the photographs by category, pop over to the Facebook page where you will find galleries on Festivals, Local Musicians, Musicians Passing Through, Skylines and Sights of the City and much more.
Of course, you could start at the beginning and read each post in order. The first was written on June 1, 2010. This is the 806th in the long line. Those first few posts included a blog about the blog, a blog about the International Biscuit Festival and several about music. I’ve been pretty consistent ever since. If you read the About Me/About this Blog link at the top of this page you’ll understand more of why I started the blog and what I’m up to.
So, for now, it’s time to party. I’ll be at Barley’s in the Old City tonight for the Metro Pulse Best of Knoxville party and I’d love for you to join me. I’ve been to quite a few of these over the years and they are always fun and generally include food from the various restaurant winners. King Super and the Excellents and Guy Marshall provide the music and it’s a free event. That’s about as good as it gets. I hope to see you there – and if you do see me, introduce yourself. I really enjoy getting to know other people who love our city.
