  1. Congratulations on a great 2010. Find your blog interesting. Enjoy that it uses your photos. Keep on being a mix of “grump”, “gadfly” and “good ideas” in 2011.

  2. Can’t remember how I found this blog. I first came to it for the LRT series. I now regularly visit for local news and issues. I wish that it expanded its focus to go a little further west to Westboro. Are there other similar blogs for other areas of Ottawa?

  3. I love anything by RealGrouchy but WestSideAction is my favourite Ottawa blog.

    Your excellent work inspired me to start my own crappy blog for Bells Corners.


    Keep up the good work and thanks a lot, Eric – you’re GOOD at what you do.

    So glad you switched from BlogSpot to WordPress- tu ne le regrettes pas, j’en suis certain.

  4. I read your blog through Blogawa, as do other people I know – does that show in your stats?
