After such a glorious summer, the last few days have been pretty tough to take. Not because of the gloom so much, but because of the chilly temperatures.
But it ain’t fall yet. So let’s focus on something else: excellent content from interesting Edmontonians who give a shit… About something other than the weather.
If you come across Edmonton bloggers/content creators who’ve produced something outstanding, please submit it to us using this form. You never know, it might end up right here on the Edmonton Blog Watch.
Check out some of the great content from content creators from last week, in no particular order:
- Last week, a young man named Isaak Kornelsen was killed while riding his bicycle on Whyte Avenue. Conrad from Green Edmonton wrote a very good post on why we need to review the rules and infrastructure for cycling in Edmonton.
- Dave Cournoyer wrote about how the downtown core (the officially boundary of what is considered to be “downtown”) shouldn’t be the only thing we focus on for development and revitalization.
- Alex Abboud took a look at what the forecasted projects in the downtown core — as provided in a report prepared for the Downtown Business Association — will do for the city.
- Local comedian and ne’er-do-well Trent Wilkie has begun “The Interview Project” on his blog, starting with Gregg Beever (I also participated).
- Natasha Chiam wrote a post about a debate on her Facebook wall: are men functionally irrelevant in modern society?
- Mack Male took Edmonton Tourism to task for spending $20,000 to bring in a former Bachelorette star and her partner to boost the city’s profile. There’s some great discussion in the comments here, too!
