Edmonton blog roundup: Aug. 3, 2014

I’m still away, but I’ve been keeping in touch with Edmonton via blogs (and a little bit of Twitter). Some finds:

imageVickie Laliotis shares a recipe from her mom that even I could make (probably). Photo of the delicacy above, used with permission. 

  • Also on the theme of mothers and dessert, Valerie Lugonja goes Saskatoon berry-picking with her mom. 
  • Chris Tse tests his physical and mental strength as an Edmonton Police Service recruit-for-a-day
  • Lowetide riffs on Joni Mitchell to ruminate on what the Oilers have in Nail Yakupov
  • Two vastly different but equally interesting posts from one of my favourite couples:
    — Jeff Samsonow finds out how many birthday freebies he can claim. 
    — Sally Poulsen explores what it takes to write a three-dimensional character
  • The Edmonton Arts Council introduces Juan Lopezdabdoub, the new artist-in-residence at the Mennonite Centre for Newcomers. 
  • John Harry Kim remembers Norman Main, a longtime member of the Edmonton Table Tennis Club. 
  • Elise Stolte is starting an urban affairs book club as part of her approach to the beat. 
  • David Climenhaga is making some changes to Alberta Diary, soon to be known as Alberta Politics. 
  • And Vintage Edmonton shares a dramatic rescue on the High Level Bridge, among other 1917 gems. 

That’s just a teeny-tiny bit of the #yeg blogosphere, selected for my tastes. Find much more at ShareEdmonton.

If you like Flipboard, I’ve made a magazine of my picks.
