Karen UnlandKaren Unland, former website editor for the Edmonton Journal and entrenched Edmonton social media maven, has included KikkiPlanet.com in her latest social media roundup. Karen had the following to say about Kikki’s interview with The Unknown Studio last week:

The theme of this week’s roundup is inspired by something Kathleen Smith (aka@KikkiPlanet) said on the most recent episode of the Unknown Studio.

The discussion turned to people who leave Edmonton for Vancouver or Toronto because they think there’s nothing going on here. “They’re complaining about a city that doesn’t exist anymore,” she said.

Ms. Unland also covered the launch party on September 30 at Daffodil Gallery for her piece:

[...] Sept. 30 also saw the launch of KikkiPlanet.com. Kathleen Smith’s new online magazine aims to be a showcase for the best of Edmonton, focusing on the young movers and shakers who love their city and work hard to make it even better. Her inaugural examples are Brittney Le Blanc and Seth Glick. KikkiPlanet was going to be a blog, but Smith decided to turn the focus away from herself and onto the world around her, which is what I would call a journalistic approach, and one that I naturally approve of. I didn’t make it to the launch, but I’ll be watching with interest.

Thank you, Karen, for the kind words and the coverage! We here at KikkiPlanet.com hope to cross paths with you soon.
