Lost Oregon is a combination of two blogs I did previously: Roadside Oregon and Stumptown Confidential.
Stumptown Confidential is history – my files were lost when the host flipped some switch. I’m saddened that all my work from 2004-2008 is gone for good. Thankfully I still have the photos and put them up on a Flickr account.
So, instead of Stumptown Confidential just dying I thought I’d keep the whole history thing going by combing both blogs – like I had a choice. So, I’ve imported Oregon Roadside from Blogger to WordPress and will start from scratch. I’ll do the occasional re-post of some of the Stumptown Confidential content as well.
The goal of the site is the same as Stumptown Confidential’s – document the disappearing Portland and Oregon of the recent past – through postcards, photos and words. Due to my geographical location of Portland metro, the site might be more skewed toward the area though.
Here’s a cool piece that Peter Carlin from The Oregonian wrote about my nerdliness.
My blog was named as part of the Willamette Week‘s Best Of issue in 2005.
