Five Seattle Blogs to Follow
For quick Seattle news and insider information, Seattle blogs are the way to go. Here are five Seattle blogs that will help you find out more about daily life in the Emerald City.
Blog4Culture: This blog bills itself as "Advancing Conversation About Culture in King Country" and it's one of the best ways to keep track of what's happening in Seattle's lively arts scene, covering installations, performances and calls for arts, as well as information about the state of art funding in Washington.
Citizen Rain: King 5 TV's Citizen Rain compiles over 300 local blogs and news sites related to Western Washington and divides them into communities so the reader can find information about specific neighborhoods, including Bainbridge, Bellevue, Capitol Hill, Tacoma, and West Seattle. Currently the site covers ten communities, but it intends to add more in the future. The site welcomes bloggers writing about Western Washington.
Seattle Daily Photo: Get a daily fix of a lovely Seattle photo each day and explore the city virtually. Each photo shows a special slice of Seattle: the sign over the Blue Moon Tavern, the Washington Ship Canal Bridge, or the Space Needle with green lighting to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Flip through the archives to see a multitude of beautiful Seattle shots taken since 2006.
Seattle Weekly's The Daily Weekly: Pick up a Seattle Weekly from a free newspaper kiosk, but check out the website where it presents The Daily Weekly, where you'll find a compendium of local blogs for a deeper look at local politics, city news, business, sports, and other happenings around the city, including a special "Weirdness" category.
The Stranger's Slog: Like The Daily Weekly, the Slog complements a print publication, The Stranger. Where the Weekly feels more news focused, the Slog includes stories on music, film, art, and theater and sometimes has a livelier and more offbeat flavor than similar blogs. Dan Savage fans will find frequent postings from the columnist here.
Both the Daily Weekly and the Slog allow the reader to access material from the print version. Several of the sites, such as Seattle Daily Photo, include links to more Seattle-based blogs, making them a good launching point for exploring Seattle in cyberspace.
