Hellgate Bridge in Astoria Park

Welcome to the inaugural Astoria Blog Carnival! We’re very excited to try this out, and hopefully it will become a great event resource for both bloggers and readers.  As we mentioned last week, a blog carnival is:

“…a way to compile many bloggers’ posts about a certain topic in one place.” It’s a great way for readers to learn more about a particular topic, discover new voices in the blogging world, and it’s good for bloggers to get their work out there in a central place (as well as creating some nice traffic for them).

Our subject for the blog carnival is simply “Astoria, Queens.” Your post can be about any aspect of Astoria that you love – the food, the parks, the people, the shops, and more. If you write a post about Astoria, this is the place for you.

Be sure to check out the blog carnival rules before you make your contribution, too.

Thanks, and we look forward to your participation!

Rubie wants to thank her Auntie M. for showing her how to blog! Her latest post is all about her favorite places to visit in Astoria–check it out…….

I excerpted a few Astoria-centric books from the past few years! Add more if you know of any. Love to see how people parse Queens. Chang-rae Lee’s “Native Speaker” also has great descriptors of the borough.

I linked to my recent post about Astoria’s fabulous Greek eatery, Ovelia and about their special BBQ night called Rock ‘n Rib Wednesdays. Good stuff…I mean, literally!

I just started a blog “Bringing Up Astorian”, and it is all about living and playing in Astoria with my young son. I moved to Astoria 9 years ago, and back then it did not feel permanent, just a convenient, safe, and affordable living arrangement. Nine years later, here we are – a family of three who can not really imagine living anywhere else. My blog is still growing, there are many things to improve but I hope you will enjoy reading about our local designer who designs very cool children’s clothing right here in Astoria, in her own kitchen.

Just posted a link to my most recent Astoria post (with a little LIC exploring thrown in.) Thanks for this great idea – I’m looking forward to checking out the other posts.

I posted a link to my latest garden update – my little Astoria garden is doing great! I am fortunate enough to have some space in the backyard to grow vegetables each summer.
