Metroblogging Vancouver is a great place to find event info, quirky op-eds, restaurant recommendations and more. Recently they put a call out for comments – everyone loves comments. Since a few others and I responded (took the bait) we’re now linked off the site, which is pretty great. It’s kinda like Beyond Robson but personally, I find it less irritating (there are some contributors on BR that just annoy the pants off me). I’m really not interested in 20 posts about club nights and how horrible Surrey is (especially because most people forming these opinions have never even spent more than 5 mins there and couldn’t tell you anything else about it besides something completely wrong and stereotypical…but I digress). Metblogs seems a lil more down to earth and is still really interesting. I’m liking another site featured today, WorldWideWaterCooler.com. Queen604…that’s just kooky, Travis! I originally found Wynne on there too – she writes about fooooood, tasty lookin’ food and various other things.
I also know I’m not the only ‘miss604’ out there – i think if you google you can find at least two others. I got the handle/domain when i was living in Boston. Kinda like a ‘I’m here, trying to fit in but I’m from Vancouver/Canada – hear me roar’ – sorta thing. Now people are saying my husband should be mr. 604 or I should now be Mrs.604 but you could also call me Mrs. Radiozoom if you really wanted too ;p

Be sure to check out the other featured links, as well (if you’re looking for a good read) try those on my blogroll.

    Hehe, I thought the idea of a face-off between you and WWWC would be funny. You two do represent for Vancouver better than I do (and I never make such claims anyhow). You and your husband do a host of various activities so maybe you have an edge already… 😉

    Now you’re making me curious about who annoys you most at BR…

    it’s not all bad, it’s one of my daily reads for sure. i like the layout and 80% of the content – there’s just that 20% that makes me laugh or roll my eyes or jump somewhere else in digust. seems like the calibre of some of the writers isn’t on par with the rest — but you can’t be perfect right? (i know i’m far from it)
