BEST LOCAL WEBSITE: Sticks of Fire: A Tampa Blog

In the Tampa online community, Sticks of Fire reigns supreme. While technically a blog, in terms of content (a five-parter on Jobsite Theater, anyone?), writing style, layout and organization, no other local site we’ve seen (blog or not) even comes close. In addition to original content, Sticks of Fire (the name a translation of the Calusa Indian word Tanpa, a reference to the area’s famed lightning) is an outstanding gateway into Tampa’s often difficult to pin down online world. The list of local links is huge, and the site is an amazing resource for all things Tampa. Sticks of Fire has moved to a new address: Update your bookmark now!
