Borrowed Sugar

I have mentioned before how much I love the community of Austin.  From my perspective, Austinites have a grasp on what it is to be a neighbor.  Fortunately for us, our friends at Borrowed Sugar have married “being neighborly” to the world of technology, making it easier to get to know your neighbor and your community.

Borrowed Sugar custom fits your experience based on where you live. Your local news and goings on, “daily deals” and bulletin board (you can post anything from wares for sale to neighborhood news) are determined by the address you enter when you sign up.  The site is beautiful and easy to navigate as you peruse each sweeter than sugar page.  As they say “We bring you the local Internet… We make it easy for you to live a more local life.”

I love that it is localized and I love their commitment to building communities… but the premise of their inspiration to bring things back to the neighborhoods could be considered awe inspiring…

“While the spirit of neighborliness was important on the frontier because neighbors were so few, it is even more important now because our neighbors are so many.” -Lady Bird Johnson

Thank you, Borrowed Sugar, for being part of why we love Austin.
