Norman Leahy and Conaway B. Haskins III, better known as One Man's Trash and South of the James, respectively, dialed off after the first of the year, citing … well, frankly, better things to do.
...
Haskins, in his final post Jan. 4, begged his leave with inferences to a change in employment status â€" presumably for the better.Haskins, who has also written for Style, recently took a new job as state deputy director of constituent casework for Sen.
...
"Basically, I got tired of yelling at what I saw on TV or what I read in the newspapers, and I didn't hear anyone expressing opinions that I had," says Conaway B. Haskins III, of South of the James.He set up his blog, and thanks to a mention on Bacon's Rebellion, it quickly began to gain momentum."I've been pleasantly surprised at how far it went in a short time."
While Haskins has covered and will cover elections - the Nov. 7 Senate race and the upcoming General Assembly session and subsequent 2007 elections, to mention a few - Bacon mostly steers clear.
...
Bacon supplements his own opinion with columns from "Wonks" (his name for guest writers), including writing from Haskins.
...
The two bloggers maintain a good relationship; Haskins refers to Bacon as "a great editor, mentor and friend," and Bacon calls Haskins "talented [and] thoughtful . . . . Who knows, he may even make the jump to the mainstream media one day."

...
Haskins notes the media's rush to jump on the blogging bandwagon: "Newspapers have started blogs, campaigns employ bloggers and a lot of politicians blog anonymously or are avid blog readers . . . . Politicians . . . have seen the effectiveness of blogging as a tool for their own advancement."
...
Haskins adds."The medium will probably stick around," he says, but agrees that with blogging's move into the mainstream, "we're part of the wallpaper now."
Haskins doesn't fool himself into thinking that he'll forever be part of that wallpaper, having watched some of Virginia's biggest bloggers come and go.
...
Conaway B. Haskins III, 29, is none of those things.
He spends only a few hours a day working on his blog, doesn't suffer computer withdrawal and admits that he isn't exactly a techie.Oh, and by the way, he's black.
But Haskins is a part of Virginia's burgeoning blogging community.
In less than one year, his Chesterfield County-based South of the James blog has become fertile ground for those who want to vent about everything from local government to national politics.
He describes his blog this way: "Random acts of journalism and frequent bouts of punditry on culture, media, politics, sports, and African-American life in Metro Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the United States, and the world beyond."
Haskins' site, www.southofthejames.com, averages more than 150 hits (that's visits) daily and is fast becoming a forum for Chesterfield residents who want to vent about their government.
It's precisely for that reason that Haskins channeled his energy into a blog.
"My wife got tired of me yelling at the TV and newspaper," he said with a chuckle.
Haskins has a history in journalism dating to his days as an undergraduate at George Mason University, where he worked on the student newspaper.
A Lunenburg County native, Haskins also worked as an editor for a student-published urban planning journal while earning a graduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Though he doesn't view bloggers as traditional journalists, he believes there is room at the media table for bloggers.
...
Haskins said his costs are low - most of the software he uses is free - and his only boss is himself, and his wife, Erika, of course.
...
Haskins, who is a member of the Responsible Growth Alliance, also runs Open Forum (http://responsiblegrowth.blogspot.com/), a blog for that citizen group.
