It's now time for me to pay tribute to one in my own backyard. Tim Lones writes a blog called Cleveland Classic Media. It's an extension of one of his hobbies and that's old television and radio. Tim and I are very much alike but the main difference in our blogs is he puts a lot of research into his.
Even though we consider each other very good friends, we have never met face to face. Our virtual meeting was on radio-info.com, where we were posting with media professionals. We both have posted on the Cleveland, classic television, and religious(sometimes referred to in the back of my mind as the holier than thou)boards. I was very impressed with Tim's knowledge of TV that we both watch as we were growing up. And the both of us have impressed the professionals for our knowledge of the mediums.
Tim works hard in the writing of his blog and has the respect of many industry people for his work. He has a collection of old TV Guides and sometimes will post schedules from the past. You go over to his blog and you might see what was on 40-50 years ago. Even though he has respect of professionals, he credits me for a lot of his inspiration. The feeling from me is mutual since if he didn't give me an example to follow posting on the message boards I may have never started blogging.
I urge everybody to go to Cleveland Classic Media and check out his hard work. Even if you don't live in the area, I think you will see why I admire his efforts.
