My blog is featured in an article by Peter Ames Carlin in today’s Oregonian: Who’s up on the odd and offbeat? Dave knows . . .
I like to think this encapsulation is spot on:
The Dave Knows site, a simply designed aggregation of listings, links to articles, a lengthy list of other Portland-centric blogs and more, serves as a guide to lesser known, if not necessarily offbeat events and places in and around the city.
[I do have one article correction, however: I’m only 38!]
If you’re new to the site, welcome! I invite you to peruse the category pull down menu to the right, browse the most recent blog posts on the homepage, and visit the calendar for things to do in Portland. The archive contains nearly three years of unconventional Portland adventures and events.
Also I recommend you take a gander at my gracious advertisers, and please visit the Network Sites further down on the right of this page; whether your interest is poutine, a place to watch a soccer match, or quirky stories about living in Portland.
Thanks for visiting!
Oh! And you can follow me on Twitter here: @DaveKnowsPDX, and for poutine news @PortlandPoutine
woohoo! gratz Dave!
He’s a “Portland Man”! Awesome! And he doesn’t look a DAY over 38!

I just read the article in The Oregonian. Sounds very similar to what we’re doing with our show. Have you thought about any video integration with your blog? Great visual presentation on the homepage btw, well laid out.
Congrats! How exciting!!!
Dave – Saw the article in the paper leaving work and then followed a “Daveknows” bus on the bike ride home minutes later. Total Market Saturation – way to go!
Steve, Meredith, Heather – thanks!
Greg Day – I’ll take a look at your show. And thanks for the layout compliments!
Tim – Re: the bus ads. My girlfriend is awesome!
I notice Groupon advertises with you. I wish they would get ideas for coupons from actually reading your website! I subscribed for awhile, but all I ever got were coupons for laser hair removal and hot stone massages, all way overpriced to begin with so the deals were not that great while the services offered managed to be simultaneously clinical and overly personal, all while keeping well clear of entertainment value. (I filled out a survey for them and told them all of the above, including my email address and phone number, so I’m not just being snarky but am thinking of the greater good of all Portlanders.) Anyway, I thought I’d give you a heads up as I recommended they contact you or read your website for ideas.
PS You have bus ads!? Cool! If your girlfriend is responsible, she is really cool.
Lise – Google Adsense feeds most of my ads (presently); I don’t have much choice over which ones appear. I think sometimes Groupon has restaurant deals? I can’t click on my ads myself; part of the agreement with google 😉
BTW, the ads up at top, next to the logo are not from Google. They’re ads for a couple friends’ projects.
