Since the redesign in November, we’ve been working to add new goodies to My Ballard. Here are a few of the recent additions:
- We brought back the Ballard restaurants section featuring the most popular spots, ranked by your ratings. This is not mean to be a comprehensive list — there’s Google and Yelp for that — but a list of 40 or so best restaurants in the neighborhood. (This is still a work in progress, but feel free to go vote for your favorites.)
- We’ve updated the Ballard breweries map to include nearby breweries in Fremont, Greenwood, Magnolia and Interbay.
- There are a lot of new people moving to the neighborhood — or thinking about moving here — so we created a Ballard neighborhood guide with a list of hot spots, neighborhoods, schools, community groups and more.
- The My Ballard Facebook Group is only a couple months old, but it’s growing like wildfire. More than 2,000 neighbors have joined so far, and many Ballard stories — like the power outage, dumpster fires, new/closing restaurants — are appearing in the group first. Unlike other community groups, we’re participating, too, helping confirm stories as we see them. If you’re a current or former Ballard neighbor, you can ask to join here.
My Ballard’s traffic has grown 2X since last fall, and we thank everyone for your support. As always, please let us know if you have any suggestions/feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
