Happy 1st Birthday East End Pioneer!

One year ago, I posted the very first item on East End Pioneer. When I devised this blog, I thought that I would be lucky if my family and a handful of friends subscribed, but to my great surprise, lots of people like to read about the "other Danforth".

THANK YOU, dear readers! You inspire me to be a better writer and to actually write about things that are relevant to our neighbourhood.

Another thing that I wanted to mention is that by writing this blog, I discovered that Danforth East does truly rock. I know that may not be the most literary of descriptions, but it's true. From vibrant restaurants to new business owners taking a leap of faith on our strip to a wide network of creative dreamers and visionaries, there is a golden energy that exists between Greenwood and Westlake. We are all part of the vanguard in a new era on Danforth East, an era that promises a future of community building and prosperity, whether that be material or spiritual. And aren't we lucky!

My lofty goals for year two include more photos, more gossip and more interviews with interesting people, including some candidates for city councillor and two guys who make musical instruments from cigar boxes.

Stay tuned for more fun and adventure with East End Pioneer and Happy Trails!!



  1. My boyfriend and I are new to the area, but are absolutely loving the community and local shops/restaurants, thanks, in part, to your blog. Thank you so much for writing about the 'hood!
