It’s been another busy week in the Edmonton blogosphere. Here are a few I wanted to highlight:
Dustin Bajer outlines what you have to do if you want to try urban beekeeping in Edmonton. (Photo courtesy of Dustin.)
I found quite a few other how-tos of note:
- Jeff Archibald lays out how to prove the claims you make about your business on your website.
- Lori at Frugal Edmonton Mama lists ways to cut the cable cord without sacrificing TV happiness.
- Sue Heuman explains how to wear ‘60s-inspired trends when you were around for them the first time.
- And this may be a bit of a stretch, but it’s worthy: Wanye Gretz wants to know how to serve you better on the Nation Network (including OilersNation).
Some good posts on community:
- Otiena Ellwand has been thinking about what it takes to make it easy to meet your neighbours.
- Mike Ross analyzes bylaw infractions by community and by time of year (and slams the Edmonton Police Service for not letting him do the same with crime stats).
- Sharon Yeo recaps the 97th Street Night Market.
- Hannah Cochran reports on Karen Lee’s corn-husk fashion competition at the Downtown Edmonton Community League’s Cornfest.
- If you want to know what our city used to look like, one of my favourite finds is Lost Edmonton. Here’s a corner I frequent.
- Beverley Jackman explores the Before I Die board in the Boyle Street community garden.
- The Royal Alberta Museum made a pretty funny video on navigating the construction in its neighbourhood.
If you’re a Flipboard enthusiast, here’s a magazine of my picks.
