Jenn Schiffer: Blogging Is Hard, Brah.

When I took over Baristanet, I was just their lowly web developer, paid by the Baristas to do something I truly love: write code and have the power to delete the site’s current existence with a couple of clicks.

BaristaJenn was a serious experiment in a single-person-run hyperlocal site, and it’s time for me to pass this experiment back onto the Baristas. I’ve nearly run out of great cat photographs, Walleroo is passed out in some school lawn somewhere, and Holly is outside my window ranting about the perils of drinking juice.

It was a fun day, my friends, but it doesn’t mean you will not see me in the future. Tomorrow is the Baristanet Live Chat with the mayoral candidates, and someone’s got to make sure no one screws it up.

Auf Wiedersehen, meine Freunde.

Thanks for reporting on this, Steven. I'm looking forward to learning about the Board's vision for the district with the addition of Eve Robinson and Laura Hertzog.
