It’s kind of hard for me to believe, but I’ve been blogging here at Living in the O for the past year. I just went back to read my first post – most of what I wrote still rings true, but I’m a bit surprised at how much more car-centric I was just a year ago.
When I started this blog, I didn’t know of any of the longer standing Oakland blogs – A Better Oakland (known then as Great Expectations) and Future Oakland – and most of the other Oakland blogs hadn’t even been started yet. I also knew embarrassingly little about this city. I feel so grateful for the Oakland blogger community that now exists and for everything I’ve learned in these past twelve months.
I’m looking forward to another year of blogging and learning about the O.
