Carrot mobs, bacon coffee: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. It's been one of those days. There were three fire alarms in my building this morning -- each about an hour apart. So suffice it to say -- despite several highly caffeinated beverages (but no Four Loko) -- I'm dragging a bit. But there's nothing like a spin through the D.C.-area blogosphere to perk a person up. Bacon? Sports? We've got it all. Read on.

Bacon ice cream. Bacon beer. Really, it was only a matter of time. Endless Simmer presents: bacon coffee. Perfect for washing down those bacon muffins.

It's a shocking statement in a town like D.C., but a new book questions how much power and influence lobbyists really have.

Uh, what's up doc? Ever heard of a “carrotmob?” The 42 explains.

Thrifty DC Cook thinks some of Dr. Phil’s life advice might also apply to blogging. We think she’s on to something.

People pack their groceries in reusable bags, light their house with compact fluorescent light bulbs. Going green is all the rage. Now some of that enthusiasm has surfaced in the world of sports. Read “The Greening of Sports” on Kaid Benfield’s blog.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day. I'll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere, so be sure to check back.
