The Willamette Week’s Best of Portland issue hit the streets today and if you turn to page 60 you’ll see something pretty cool: BikePortland has been voted Best Local Blog!

Thanks to everyone who voted for us!

We all put so much into this site that it feels really nice to be recognized and appreciated. And by “we” I don’t just mean Michael and I and our other contributors. I mean everyone in our community. Without your inspiring work as leaders, activists, creators, and so on, we wouldn’t have anything to report on. BikePortland has always been — and always will be — merely a reflection of this vibrant and inspiring community. Warts and all.

This month (July 29th) is our 11th anniversary of bringing you daily bike news. Can you believe it?

If you like what we do, please consider becoming a subscriber and/or donor.

Running this blog is my passion. I’m an activist and a journalist, not a businessman. And while we’ve managed to survive all these years it’s a constant struggle to make the financial end of things pencil out.

On a related note, BikePortland will be going through a major transition in the next couple of months. I’m not ready to lay it all out just yet, but you’ve been forewarned.

If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Also, if you comment frequently, please consider holding your thoughts so that others can step forward. Thank you — Jonathan

    Well, I voted for you, but now I see that “Oh Joy Sex Toy” was in the running too…

      Erika Moen is rad. OJST is a really good thing. Totally different than BP, but it’s well done and thoughtful.

    Though you guys screen about 80% of my awesome comments, it is still good to see you win. You beat that sex toy blog into submission.

    thanks for adding the one time “donate” option ( I’ve already made use of it). Could you add it to the top tab, under or with the subscription tab, so others can find it easily, I’m sure lots of non subscribers wouldn’t mind giving smaller amounts here and there especially when inspired by good stories, like I wanted too after reading that better naito would continue thru the summer.
    Thanks !
