Yesterday I described a few of my favorite Oregonlive.com blogs written by Oregonian and Oregonlive writers. Most of the blogs on Oregonlive, however, are written by volunteer bloggers who had a particular interest, applied to be a blogger, and were given a blog. And some of them are the most entertaining.
Oregonlive hosts a number of neighborhood blogs and aggregates the postings from all of them here. This is a good resource, and your particular neighborhood blog is worth reading too, but there are several neighborhood blogs that stand out in terms of frequency of posts, useful information, and interesting stories and opinions:
- Old Town by Larry Norton
- Foster-Powell by Linda Goertz
- Sellwood by Rob Lusardi (and others)
Up until the 2008 season was canceled, this relatively new blog was regularly updated with relevent and interesting news for Lumberjax fans.
On Stage by the Portland theatre community
Another relatively new blog, only up since September. Blogged by committee, it’s already brimming with fascinating stories, theories, and tips regarding writing, acting, and Portland theater.
Exposure to the MAX by Andrew Brawley
If you’re a public transit rider you’ve got lots of stories that run the gamut from cute to disgusting, amusing to terrifying. Andrew rides the MAX and shares his stories, often with sneaky camera phone snapshots to illustrate.
Though this blog is maintained by Oregonlive staff, the content is yours. User submitted photos are organized into galleries linked from the blog posts, which feature one of the photos.
