County Grind Year One: Less Justin Bieber Than You Think
County Grind is 1 year old this week!
OK, so technically Saturday, May 21, was the one-year anniversary of County Grind's painful but necessary split from the Miami New Times' Crossfade blog. We decided to wait and see if any sort of "rapture" would occur before assembling any link montages or commissioning any overly garish logos to commemorate this important event. This week, we'll be celebrating with some misty-eyed recollections of the past year.
First, only a tiny fraction of our work has had anything to do with Justin Bieber -- in spite of what some
angry commenters would believe. Below is a complete chronology of the in-depth Biebs coverage featured on County Grind during the past year.
