This week's Wikli is our last. It's been a longstanding collaborative project, buoyed over six years by countless participants. Our goal has been to make community connections, and yeah, I think it's worked. I've enjoyed it immensely and am so thankful.
Recently this scene has grown quieter, for obvious reasons. A thriving neighborhood website needs caretakers who are consistently motivated. It needs to adapt to a constantly changing online ecosystem. It needs a moderator who can fully engage, inject new ideas, and inspire conversation, all with a light touch. It needs somebody else to step up and do their thing.
There's been some discussion about creating a cooperative neighborhood blog. I think that's a great idea, and I hope it happens. If it makes sense, I'm open to helping someone to adapt this platform to some new and different site. In the meantime, it'll be quieter here, but we'll keep the lights on. Columbia Citizens have mostly focused on the Wikli newsletter, but there's also plenty of other neighborhood information to be found here. This is a wiki, after all.
Here here are some of the other great online resources our neighborhood already has to offer:
- We've got a facebook group
- There's an email group for Columbia City Parents.
- The CCBA maintains a website.
- On Twitter, you can follow @CCitizens.
- There are various email newsletters, from the Rainier Chamber, the Rainier Valley Historical Society, Lakewood Seward Park Community Club, and SEEDArts.
- There's Southend Seattle and the Rainier Valley Post.
- moc.liamg|ginuar.jram#ginuaR jraM sends regular messages about community safety.
- Others? Feel free to post them below.
Thanks everybody. See you around.
