Edmonton blog roundup: Aug. 31, 2015

We’re on a family mini-vacation, just a few days away to reset before school starts. But I got some reading and listening done before we left, and in the car, and here we are:

Family vacation
My girl and me at the Calgary Zoo on our wee vacation.
Sightseeing
A little bit of DIY
Moms reaching out
  • Natasha Chiam lays out what she needs, instead of requiring mind-reading.
  • Alexis Marie Chute offers concrete ways to help her through a very difficult time.
  • Kelly-Dawn Aulenbach is working on being present amid “the long days of Motherhood.”
People-watching
  • Jennifer Lavallee starts a new series of profiles on The Noteworthy with a chat with writer Jessica Kluthe.
  • I had a great talk with Andy Grabia about baseball, the Oilogosphere and how blogging has changed.
  • Shayne Woodsmith visits with a streetcar motorman. (I also liked his chat with the bird man.)
  • Adam Rozenhart visits with Anna Grimsrud, a Canadian expat living in Cape Town, South Africa.
  • Chad Huculak interviews Edmonton expat Mike Winters about his new book, Cartoon Machine #2.
And in other news

That’s a lot, and yet it’s a tiny fraction of what you would find on ShareEdmonton.

I collect my picks in a Flipboard magazine, and I can be found on Twitter in a couple of places: @seenandheardyeg and @karenunland.

Remember to sign up for my newsletter if you haven’t yet. This week’s tardy missive (see above re: vacation) includes a deal on a pass for the Ignite Edmonton Festival, where I’m giving a workshop on Sept. 9.
