Hello and welcome to this, the inaugural article for the new Edinburgh Community Collective website! We are extremely proud here at Edinburgh Community Collective to be starting up a new project with the aim of creating a friendly space for people to write about this proud city that they love, to write about it critically, to write about it lovingly, to write about it passionately and openly. We will be posting articles that relate to all facets of the city and that reflect all the suggestions and interest of our readers and contributors. If it relates to Edinburgh it could make it onto the site!
Why such a broad approach?
Well avid, impatient and frankly slightly rude reader, we chose to cast this broad net because we realised that we are broad people who aren’t pinned down to one interest or one way of seeing the world. That is how all people are, we all have to consider everything, we have to consider what to buy, where to go, who to meet, how to live, what is worth what, and so on and so on. No one person thinks only about where is good to eat, so why should any one website? No one person thinks only about where is good to go for a drink, so why should any one website? No one person thinks only about the problems with the council in a city, so why should any one one website? No one person thinks only about where to holiday, or what to do with guests, or where to go this weekend, so why should only one website? We don’t limit ourselves in our lives so we decided not to limit ourselves in this project. With so much to think about, we all need each other, thats why community, and thats why collective.
WOW… ok.. whats next?
Whoa there reader! We only just got here steady on! A good question though. Next we are going to start sourcing and writing articles to bring to all of you. We are going to start developing this website, developing this community and developing this collective!
Well then lets go!
Yes! Lets! Keep your eyes pealed reader, we’ll be back soon with our first article proper. See you there!
