I wanted to highlight a new blog I just added to my blogroll.
One of the things I love about living in Oakland is the sense of pride many people feel about this city. Sure, it's got it's share of problems---nobody's denying that Oakland has a long way to go on that front---but that doesn't mean that this city doesn't have its shining moments.
Oakland Goods does a great job of highlighting this city's cultural and artistic nuggets of greatness.
If you live or work in Oakland, or are looking to explore what I like to call this "diamond in the rough kind of city," check out this blog for some inspiration.
