May’s Interesting Vancouver Sites

Thanks for all the suggestions about ways to encourage commenting. I said I’d reciprocate by calling attention to the Web sites of some of those who shared ideas. It was such a success that I think I’ll post interesting Web site monthly. So without further ado, here are May’s handful of Vancouver-y (Vancouver-ish?) links.

Allen Pike runs The site is a dog’s breakfast of interesting shared quotes, online games, quirky links, satirical news arti cles and a lively forum.

Jen is the brains and brawn and beauty behind, a personal blog that expresses the humor and adventures of a typical 20-something life-long Vancouverite. She’s currently in Seoul.

Miss 604 ( is a completely different typical 20-something life-long Vancouverite woman. I personally think we should have these two battle in a cage match to determine who will be Queen604!

Jonathon Narvey blogs at and has several handfuls of opinions about Vancouver-related issues: road-building, big box stores, comic book movies and Vancouver’s Storyeum. He writes at Urban Vancouver as well.

Rob Cottingham’s epynomous personal blog is also a not-infrequently updated source of Web politics, issue summaries and tech pointers.

Vancouver Canucks Oped, a top tier hockey blog, still has lots to say, even in the (for us in Vancouver) off-season:

Look, we’ve all suffered the pain and disappointment of The Great 2006 Failure and maybe we just need a reminder that a new season awaits us in only, uh, 5 months. (“omg, kill me now!”) Ooops, sorry…

Ariane, a Burnaby resident, sells organic cotton designs via her City Girl Designs Web site and also a storefront in Vernon.

Finally, Scott posts at Overheard in Vancouver which is a really cool idea for a Web site that I’m going to post about separately.

    Thanks for the writeup! Finally, I’m getting some traffic to my site – and I didn’t even have to do anything that would make my family uncomfortable to be around me. Yet another proof of the karmic power of blogging.

    Thanks for the link love, Travis! It’s better than… than… than a Series 3 TiVo.

    Well, it’s pretty damn good, anyway.
