Yesterday was Canada’s birthday, and you know what that means: only 17 more days until my birthday. If you’re thinking of getting me something, you should check out all the really expensive stuff I love on Pinterest. Feel free to splurge — I think I’ve earned it this year.
Of course another Monday also means a look back at some of the outstanding content Edmonton-and-area bloggers and content creators have developed. And as usual, our community has come through in fine style.
Remember: if you know of a post that should be included in the Edmonton Blog Watch, please use this handy submission form. I’m looking for stuff that is interesting, well-written and coherent — and, of course, written by someone from or in Edmonton. Those are my only criteria.
Here’s some outstanding content from Edmonton content creators last week, in no particular order:
- Kevin Kossowan has a blog and video series all about local food, growing and subsistance farming. He did a create video episode on Lisa, a young woman who has a farm-share program.
- Blogger Brett Johnston, who I discovered via Twitter last week, wrote an excellent post about libertarian Ezra Levant, and why he is, in Brett’s opinion, a genital.
- Tanis Miller, who I have a secret crush on that everyone now knows about, posted a great piece on why she started blogging as the Redneck Mommy and why she still does.
- Over at Comics! The Blog, James Leask takes Aaron Sorkin critics to task for being lazy in their criticism — this was a really entertaining read, and you don’t even have to have seen the first episode of The Newsroom to enjoy it.
- Blogger Carol wrote a post about urban art and graffiti in Edmonton in the wake of the art exhibit confiscation from the Paint Spot by Edmonton police. I hope Edmontonians continue discussing and debating about urban art — we need more of it here.
- In honour of Canada Day, I’d like to share two additional posts with you which should technically go in next week’s blog watch, but I figured my Canadian readers would appreciate:
