There are a couple of new-to-me Winnipeg blogs — Nothing in Winnipeg and Love me, love my Winnipeg — that I’ve been meaning to mention. I had to laugh when I discovered that they both just wrote about the wacky keywords that bring traffic to their blogs!
“Some words on the city. The city is my love, my co-dependent love. We validate each other’s flaws. If Winnipeg is frustrated and unlovely, and I am frustrated and unlovely, then we can cling to each other. If one of us pulls back from its potential, the other can too. We’ve comforted each other, but we’ve also held each other down.”
This blog is beautifully written, and I’m looking forward to ploughing through the archives.
Love me, love my Winnipeg is written by Winnipeg Girl, who’s been asked if she works for the local tourism board because she touts Winnipeg so much! She writes thoughtfully and humourously about her life in the North End, which I appreciate as it opens my eyes to the neighbourhood right across the Redwood Bridge from me. We definitely need more people talking positively about the North End! Oh, and she’s addicted to Slurpees. Go figure 😉
Anyway, I’ve added them both to my Google Reader – you should, too! I’ve been updating my blogroll lately, deleting some defunct blogs and adding some new ones. What’s your favourite Winnipeg blog?
