Welcome to the beginning of what I’m hoping will one day become an indispensable component to our growing neighborhood. My ambition is to provide a forum for residents of our community to share, interact and connect with each other. The idea arrived in 2010 when I was robbed at gunpoint in our neighborhood and I was frustrated by my inability to alert everyone to be more vigilante. Participation in our Yahoo! group had waned and unfortunately the dialogue for our HOA Newsletter was not interactive enough. There simply was no vehicle to communicate with our entire neighborhood. Technology has finally caught up with my vision through the blogging platform.
I’ve lived in Emeryville for nearly ten years now and it feels like home to me. It’s such a small community that I really feel an opportunity exists for individuals to make a difference. I’m hoping more of you are out there that have an interest in what’s happening in our neighborhood and want to be informed. Ultimately it will be up to us, the community, to drive the conversation and together we can get those in charge to listen to our collective voice.
I’m hoping to recruit contributors from all around Emeryville to represent and speak for our entire city. We will post relevant information about our neighborhood, spotlight new places and list upcoming events. “Like Us” on Facebook to add new posts to your feed and stay on top of new happenings in our city. If you have any suggestions or would like to contribute content to this blog, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I strive to report facts and be as objective as possible but feel free to contact me if I’ve missed anything or you object to any of the content I’ve posted and I will do my best to set the record straight.
