Springfield's latest blogger is radio personality/news guy Shawn Balint. His blog, Balint's Brainscan, can be found here. It looks like Shawn will include postings on sports, something that has been noticeable lacking in the Springfield Blogosphere. Shawn does news and talk on WMAY and morning news mornings on WQLZ. That makes him about the 100th WMAY personality to have a blog (is there something in their contracts?). Shawn is also babysitting Jim Leach's AbeLog blog this week while Jim is on vacation.
I discovered another Springfield blogger over the weekend: Amy Allen of Obiter Dictum. Actually, Amy owns, or is a partner in, five different blogs! She also posts at a furious pace and has been since at least August of 2004 from what I can see. She's a conservative who focuses on Illinois politics and the eventual destruction of the evil ACLU.
