Image via WikipediaIt's time I started following Guy’s Kawasaki’s pointers rather than just telling people how useful they are. In particular, some time ago, Guy posted some tips about blogging. One of his main pointers was to use numbered “lists” as the foundation for one’s post. He still does this most of the time to this day, and for obvious reasons, it works.
Now, enter Panels, and a much more interesting way to post about things that are of interest to you and your readers. As you explore these panels, please make sure to try out adding a review yourself right in the panels, and check out the integrated "Yelp" reviews too. So, without further adieu, in the first example that I hope will inspire and inform, are some worthwhile places to experience in Portland, Oregon...
2. For kids, there is much to do in our wonderful city, but everyone likes a trip to OMSI, The Oregon Zoo, The Children’s Museum for the little ones, and last but not least our annual Rose Festival offers many events each summer.
3. Don’t forget the Arts! Though we don’t go as much as I’d like, the Portland Art Museum is truly Image via Wikipediaa treasure, the Portland Opera and Oregon Ballet are both top notch, and the Oregon Symphony is no slouch either.
4. Portland is a college town (kinda)! Sure, Oregon and Oregon State are not too far away but PSU, UP, Marylhurst, George Fox, and Lewis & Clark College are right here in the Rose City.
5. Beer lovers rejoice year round in Portland with the Oregon Brewer’s Festival (the nation's largest microbrewery celebration) in the summer, the upcoming Portland International Beer Festival, and the winter brings us the Holiday Ale Festival in the heart of downtown. Local downtown microbrewery destinations include the first, Bridgetown Brewing, and the latest pub in "The Pearl District" was opened this year by Deschutes Brewery.
