Welcome to the Taproot Edmonton blog

We’re launching a blog!

On our original FAQ page, we clarified that Taproot Edmonton is not a blog: “We love blogs, but this is not a blog.” We hadn’t yet published any stories and we had a high bar for quality in mind, so we wanted to convey that. Now you can actually read our stories and see the quality for yourself.

We have always been fans of blogging though! I’ve been writing at mastermaq.ca since 2003, and Karen was an early adopter of blogs too. A blog is an excellent tool to communicate what we’re working on, which is why we’re launching this one now. We plan to share product updates, thoughts on the future of local media, and other updates related to Taproot.

If you’re new to Taproot Edmonton, we’re a source of curiosity-driven stories about our city, cultivated by the community. We are building a new way to do local journalism, and a new way to fund it, because the business model that used to support local journalism is broken. We are striving to replace what is being lost with something that is sustainable and responsive to the community we serve.

We look forward to sharing the journey with you here.
