What makes a community? It is what we make it, and the community of Metroblogging SF has made it quite large, including the San Jose area. For me, it makes sense. My daily life includes both cities, as well as many of the surrounding towns, and I am always meeting people with similar connections to both areas. I am lucky to live in a community that has so many interesting and diverse areas, all connected by people traveling between them.
This is my community (after the jump).
I live and work down here in south San Jose. My activities take me to Los Gatos and Santa Clara every week. I visit friends in San Mateo, Hollister, Sunnyvale, San Francisco, and San Carlos. I go out to the bars and restaurants in San Francisco and downtown San Jose.
I have friends who live in San Francisco and work down in Coyote Valley, and so they are constantly going back and forth between the two cities. I am too. And it seems that there are always friends heading up to Berkeley and Oakland to visit people or to go to concerts.
Blossom Valley is my neighborhood, but I have adopted Los Gatos, Hayes Valley, and Inner Sunset as my neighborhoods too. And I am constantly finding new and interesting places thanks to missed turns, new friends, and restaurant recommendations.
