The San Jose Blog's 8th Anniversary!

Where does the time go, has it really been 8 years already? I feel like San Jose has really turned the corner and is getting a lot more love than it did when this blog was first started. There is still a long way to go and plenty of challenges to contend with, but the city is moving in the right direction.

You might have noticed the posting frequency has gone down over the last year or so. Unfortunately some priorities had to be shifted around and I have a lot less time than I used to. My goal is still to do at least three posts a week, but I would be thrilled if any out there wants to contribute as well. We get tons of offers to cover restaurant openings, events, and concerts (usually with free passes). Most of those posts never get written because there just aren't enough hours in the day. If you are interested in stepping up to the podium, just drop me a line.

Now for a bit of nostalgia. Below is our very first post:

  3. Thank you sir for all the time and effort you have put in for 8 years without pay and without thanks. It's easy to be cynical about the city, but we all know it has so much potential to be so much more. This city has the best weather and the best economy in the United States, period. That gives it a huge head start to do anything it wants. Instead of all these rich tycoons in the valley sending all their money to San Francisco and LA, we should convince them to spend it here in a city longing for more appeal With each development, comes more legitimacy as a city to be taken seriously. If only more city officials would have a bigger vision for the city and not just revel in being in San Francisco's shadow, then we could progress into a more respected city. I think we all get tired of the city being disrespected for its lack of culture and attractions. And deep down we know the criticisms are still mostly true. But as the line goes "if you build it, they will come..." Start building San Jose and maybe we'll finally get there.
