These are your Muni Diaries, too

Hello there,

We at Muni Diaries have been busy lately, living our lives, working our jobs, planning big, upcoming changes to the site. Details are still being hammered out, but expect new features, a new look, but the same basic functionality to the site. We’re aiming to make it easier to read and write your stories, to feature Muni news separately from the diaries, and to add a bunch of new features that should make everyone’s lives a little better.

In the meantime, I thought I’d remind everyone that Muni Diaries aren’t merely the provenance of a few select San Francisco residents. The intent from the beginning has been for this to be a space to read and write, about anything having to do with Muni.

So, take a moment to register, if you haven’t already, and begin telling the world your stories today. Give your story a headline, hit submit for review, and we’ll look it over and publish it. You can make it anonymous, or leave a name, tagline, links, whatever. Publish your diary and tell all your friends about the site. Join our Facebook group and spread the word.

We hope you’re enjoying this weekend of warm weather and sunshine. Lord knows it won’t last.

– Jeff

Muni Manners Photo Contest

The good ladies at Muni Manners have announced a transit photo contest. They’re calling for submissions from now until September 15. It doesn’t matter if you’re reading this from Bayview or Baton Rouge (I’m assuming there’s a bus system there) — the ladies are looking for shots of any system, including international ones.

We’ll most likely be linking to the final result, once it’s compiled. We’ll leave a page at the top of Muni Diaries with all the info you need. Tell your transit-riding friends!

New Features on Muni Diaries

In our never-ending desire for more contributions, we’ve added “Share a Muni diary” links at the top and right side of the page. Being bound to work within the limitations of WordPress, that’s the best we can do for now. Work is under way to completely revamp the site, and a “share” or “contribute” button will figure prominently in the redesign.

There’s also a “contributors” page now. We’ve started with beauty and the beast (Tara and me, respectively), and will be adding more names soon.

Enjoy, and stay tuned …
