The Edmonton blogosphere was filled with a diverse range of content this week. Each time I came across a new post, I thought to myself, “Seriously? I started doing this because it was easy, not because I wanted to filter through a bunch of great content… Oh wait, that’s exactly what I wanted.”
Here, then, are some of the pieces from Edmonton bloggers that captivated my attention this week, in no particular order:
- Dave Cournoyer noticed some similarities between a fundraising letter sent out by the Wildrose party, and the fundraising letters sent out by televangelist Peter Popoff.
- Edmonton teacher Joe Bower wrote a very thoughtful piece on why the contentious no-zero policy at Ross Shepherd and other public schools is a good one.
- Kristi Gurski wrote about public art etched into some of the concrete benches on Alberta Avenue on the Charrette.
- Alex Abboud, former Edmonton Journal blogger-in-residence, turned 30 this week — and he shared some of the wisdom he’s gained over his lifetime.
- Tech Mommy Jennifer Banks wrote about teaching her eldest daughter Tenesea to trust her instincts when it comes to strangers.
- Karen Unland goes into a little bit more detail about the aspirations of the Edmonton Experiment.
