Today’s post is going to be a little different. That’s because this will be my last blog entry here at Streetsblog.net.

I just want to say what a privilege and an honor it has been to work with so many talented, dedicated bloggers over the past 18-plus months. Together we have built an amazing network of people who care about active, sustainable transportation and the future of our nation’s communities. We’ve had a lot of meaningful conversation. And it’s been great fun.

My colleagues here at Streetsblog will continue this work, highlighting the best the Streetsblog Network has to offer.

As for me, I’m taking a little time off before starting in September at Grist, where I’ll be covering cities and placemaking.

In the meantime, I’ll be hanging out on Twitter — I’m @buttermilk1 — and at my blog, Pursuit of Happiness.

I hope to see you around.
