As you are well aware, there are many superb blogs and websites available. It’s not hyperbole when I say there are far too many sites worth visiting. Nevertheless, I have some of my favorites related to Saint Paul, biking, history and news that have helped me and are worth sharing. When you have an extra moment or two, check these out.
- www.minnpost.com – MinnPost is a news site chock full of interesting articles about everything from politics to education to art to sports. Many thoughtful writers and reporters who were displaced by contraction in the newspaper industry have relocated here. Tom Nehil features noteworthy blogs in his Friday ‘Blog Cabin Roundup.’ (A big thank you to Tom for including Saint Paul By Bike several times.)
- www.streets.mn/ – This is a transit and land-use-focused blog that is written by volunteer bloggers and is a non-profit entity. (I contribute an edited post of SPBB once a month.)
- http://saintpaulhistorical.com/ – Saint Paul Historical tells more than 270 fascinating stories about people, places and things in our fair city with interactive map links. You can view this site on a computer or via free iOS and Android apps. Brought to us by Historic Saint Paul.
- www.mnhs.org – The Minnesota Historical Society is an amazing resource for every Minnesotan. The exhibits at the History Center in downtown Saint Paul and dozens of historical sites around the state are fun for all. For research, the website is unbeatable for access to images, maps and other documents.
- http://www.startribune.com/local/stpaul/230354711.html – Some shameless self-promotion here. Curt Brown featured “Saint Paul By Bike” in the “My Minnesota” feature in the Sunday, November 3, 2013 StarTribune newspaper and on its website.
