I decided to hit up the legendary (among bloggers) Technorati and perform a very particular sort of search – I decided to specifically look for those blogs claiming to be about Appalachia in general – 70 sites were listed for my blog-pleasure as a result. I decided to rank order them according to their authority rating and list ‘m for you (editing out spurious or dead entries as well as sites which haven’t updated since August of this year) for your life-pleasure.


Authority of 9: Mari’s Midnight Garden


Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
