Edmonton is blessed with a really strong, diverse, and articulate social media community. Over the last three years, I’ve gotten to know a lot of the players involved in this community. Aside from interacting with folks daily on Twitter, many of them share their thoughts, opinions and passions on their blogs.
This new weekly feature, called Edmonton Blog Watch, takes a look at some of the interesting, compelling or outstanding blog posts from members of the Edmonton online community. It’s a round-up, my friends, as compiled by yours truly. And I’ll be posting these every Monday morning, unless something terrible or exciting happens.
Let’s take a look at some of the insights you might have missed from last week (in no particular order):
- City and Dale’s Kendall Barber shares her experiences on a video shoot last week, though she’s mum on exactly what it was for. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of her hard work.
- Jeff Samsonow, former Editor-in-Chief of the now-kaput Edmontonian, made a poignant commentary on the recent dust-up between the Drift Food Truck and Grandma Lee’s Bakery on Capital Boulevard.
- Dave Cournoyer posted about Danielle Smith’s relationship with Mayor Mandel and the City of Edmonton. Dave says Danielle Smith’s and Stephen Mandel’s lukewarm relationship means the city has all the time in the world to develop a better relationship with the Official Opposition.
- Nadine Riopel, the Savvy Do Gooder, reminds us that being a philanthropist is more than just donating money.
- Jay n’ J posted a slider — their mini-podcast episodes — about he new movie Battleship, named after the boardgame. Jay had Gregg Beever on the slider this week. Find out if Battleship is worth the price of admission.
- Girls and Bicycles author Sarah Chan and her husband Don Iveson had their second child last week. Welcome to the world, Alice!
