Thank the gods for the rain! I mean, I enjoyed the heat even if it did make my apartment really uncomfortable, but there are few things better than a solid day of rain to refresh the world. And since it’s Monday, it’s time to take a look at some of the great blogs I read last week.
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, or just about Edmonton. Those are my only criteria.
Thanks to those of you who’ve suggested blogs. I’ve added them to my reading list!
Here’s some great content that caught my eye this week, in no particular order:
- It might sound somewhat technical, but Mack Male has a great post up about the creation of Edmonton’s Agriculture and Food Strategy — although he has some concerns about it.
- Karen Unland recaps the first event put on by Capital Ideas, the first project of the Edmonton Experiment.
- Techmommy Jennifer Banks talks about how she likes messing around with Klout, a social media influence and reach measurement tool.
- Relative newcomer to the blogging scene, Gin-Gee Press shares a letter she wrote to Health Minister Fred Horne about caring for Alberta’s seniors.
- I wrote about this a bit last week, but it bears pointing out again: Kathleen Smith writes about Northlands’ current campaign to rename Capital Ex.
- Speaking of Capital Ex, Alex Abboud questions the choice of this year’s parade grand marshal.
