To start I know many of you also read YkOnline and will probably be mad at me for somewhat abandoning that site but you must understand that I did not want to do that and I will try not to. The challenge will be keeping it current, as I don’t live in Yellowknife anymore it will be hard to be in the middle of what is happen. But this post is not about YkOnline.
This post is about the new community site I have launched. As you might know it is called Dawson Online and is intended for Dawson Creek, BC and its surrounding area. This site has many features to it. The main one being a hyper local blog. I, along with others I hope, will blog about Dawson Creek. Dawson Creek although thought to be just a small farm town by outsiders is actually a very lively city, there is much more going on here than meets the eye and the point of this blog is to expose some of that. I intent to have positive reviews, events, local issues, editorials, history and posts on anything interesting in the area. The other big feature to this site is the Classified section. While trying to find a place to live before moving down here I realized that Dawson does not offer a online classified site so I built one. It can be found here http://classifieds.dawsononline.ca. Some other features of the site will be the local online forum and event calender.
The site is still young but if it goes anything like YkOnline I will be very pleased.
