I wrote a version of this post awhile back on the Aggregate blog, listing the top 5 new sites you should read or check out in Nevada County. This list differs from that a bit due to the changing landscape and the general negativity that’s being spewed online.
So instead of sifting through the pot shots, take a look at this list to see what might interest you as something worth reading without the heartburn.
- Sierra Voices — Penned by Don Pelton, this blog focuses on politics and upping the quality of debating. It centers around regional and national issues.
- See Jane Do — Elisa White and Jesse Locks run this blog in conjunction with their radio show on KVMR. The gist, just like the show, is dedicated to “everyday women doing extraordinary things for the planet.” There’s some amazing stories told here every week.
- Dixie Fix — Dixie Redfearn has worked with every single media outlet in Nevada County and has her eyes and ears (and sometimes fingers) on the pulse of this county. Remarkably, she stays positive throughout.
- Nevada City Farmers Market — It’s weird because this is centered around essentially a business, but the once a week reminder posted on this site is uplifting and topical for those looking for something to do in Nevada City. Good qualities for this list.
This list is by no means encompassing of the entire region, and I welcome suggestions in the comments.
