We’re back! Well, by “we,” I mean “me,” Jon Swerens, proprietor of this place called The Good City.
I’ve let this project lay fallow for far too long. So you can be on the lookout for some fresh stories and commentary very soon.
In the meantime, you can befriend or like The Good City over on Facebook.
Where have I been? Well, I’ve been the same place you have been: Looking at this blog, wondering where the next post will come from.
I’ve spent most of the past week thinking about the focus of this blog, and I’ve decided to follow what readers have been most interested in — local commentary and photos. I get many more comments and interest in hyperlocal coverage rather than links to stories elsewhere that I find interesting.
The down side is that I will likely not be able to post every day. To make it easier for you to follow, you can now get emailed updates via FeedBurner whenever a new post goes live.
For those savvy, the RSS feed still operates, of course. Have you heard of RSS, but wondered what it is? Check out this easy-to-understand video from Common Craft.
You can find Google Reader here. And the links to the update services are at the top right, and right here for your convenience.

Former Fort Wayne resident Andrew Sikora thinks enough of The Good City to list it as No. 7 of his Top 7 of ’07 blogs of the year.
That’s very nice of him, and we appreciate the confirmation of what we’re trying to do here.
The Good City is about promoting things that are good for our city. Sometimes that includes shameless plugs. In this case a must-see documentary and a semi-must-see play. Thanks for indulging me.
