I like to know what’s going on around town and who’s doing what. I’m a neighborhood busy body, but I don’t care or notice who bought a new car, who painted their house, who just got back from a ski vacation at Whistler and the like.
What I care about is who is making what, starting what, producing what. I’m interested in what you do and your business, and your newest product, or concept. I want to know about the latest show on Broadway, but also about the little neighborhood sing-along in the upstairs neighbor’s rec room. I want to know about the newest restaurant in Kenmore Square and the cupcake business you’re starting in your kitchen. I want to know about classes at the MFA and computer coding classes for kids at Parts and Crafts.
Thanks to our digital world, it is easier. Guides for shopping new, unique, boutique, and niche businesses online can come to your inbox as a newsletter or you can peruse what’s going on at Kickstarter, Joyus, Eat Boutique, Daily Grommet and other such sites. Here are some sites that I use to keep me in the loop.
The Kitchn – For, you guessed it, kitchen related stories, goods, recipes.
Daily Candy – For a little bit of everything
Apartment Therapy – For a little bit of everything home.
Style Carrot – Beautiful inspiration for style, for every room and every part of your home life.
Crocodile Tears – Mid-Century Modern in the Boston area.
UrbanDaddy – Less Daddy..more Urban.
Boston Restaurant Talk – Openings, closings, must try spots and more.
And if you just can’t bare to get one more email in your inbox, just “like” them on Facebook, follow them on Pinterest or Instagram, or Twitter.
