The Willamette Week’s Best of Portland issue hit the streets today and if you turn to page 60 you’ll see something pretty cool: BikePortland has been voted Best Local Blog!
Thanks to everyone who voted for us!
We all put so much into this site that it feels really nice to be recognized and appreciated. And by “we” I don’t just mean Michael and I and our other contributors. I mean everyone in our community. Without your inspiring work as leaders, activists, creators, and so on, we wouldn’t have anything to report on. BikePortland has always been — and always will be — merely a reflection of this vibrant and inspiring community. Warts and all.
This month (July 29th) is our 11th anniversary of bringing you daily bike news. Can you believe it?
Running this blog is my passion. I’m an activist and a journalist, not a businessman. And while we’ve managed to survive all these years it’s a constant struggle to make the financial end of things pencil out.
On a related note, BikePortland will be going through a major transition in the next couple of months. I’m not ready to lay it all out just yet, but you’ve been forewarned.
