Ann Arbor, Michigan, and its much-maligned neighbor Ypsilanti have a thriving blog-scene that doesn't actually include many planners, but has lots of planning students and planning-savvy residents. It just sort of coalesced within the past year as people found each other and encouraged participation--most of the blogs I either stumbled upon by googling for "ann arbor blog" (you might try the same) and then looking to see who the commenters were on planning-related or local news posts, and following back to their blogs. These days, public forums on any major planning issue see two or three of us in attendance. Because of my experience in this group, I've become strongly positive on the potential of blogs as a tool for raising awareness/caring of planning issues and coordinating action.jasmine said:do any of you have blogs? like in blogger or livejournal? just wondering...i've been wanting to see and read about lives of urban planners, designers, architects, and etc...and i haven't really found a lot of urban planning blogs.
