I've been scoping out blogs of relevance in order to praise them and link to them so they will do the same to me, boosting both my self-esteem and traffic. (I figure if both of those things of mine get high enough I will become Russell Crowe.)
I've found a couple of excellent local blogs that I would (and do!) link to even if they think I suck and never return the compliments/flowers/slave children:
Blue Cats and Red Sox is written by a Bostonian transplanted to UM for Art School. A girl, even! She's probably completely insane, but she likes sports and Franz Ferdinand. And she writes a friggin' TON. It's unbelievable. I am in the process of not believing it right now. Right now it's all Red Sox and Tigers but I figure when there is no baseball there may even be Michigan related content. I mean, who would write about Michigan when no one was playing any games? A freak, that's who.
The Detroit Tigers Weblog is not creatively named, but it is excellent. It's even got statistical regression charts! This is not a selling point for you? Oh. Well, it's also got a lot of interesting content... but you're probably going to be pissed off if you hate charts, because they're coming here eventually. So go over there now.
