We are Cardiff - Featured web site - wearecardiff.wordpress.com
We are Cardiff is a storytelling website featuring short tales from residents in Cardiff about how they came to be here, the things that attracted them to the city, likes as well as dislikes and peoples aspirations for the future.
Now celebrating over a year of publishing stories, the we are Cardiff site provides a very interesting read including “the most read story” on the site, a story of Bethan Elfyn, whom many will know from BBC Radio.
A great summary not only of the website but also highlighting many of the features which often go unnoticed in Cardiff can be found on their about us page, it reads:
“Cardiff is a little city, but at the same time, it’s a great one. You encounter any number of different nationalities on a daily basis – you see the interaction between traditional Welsh culture and its English counterpart. You see roadsigns in Welsh first, English second. We have a resident circus. We have sandy beaches and waterfalls and castles and caves within driving distances. We have abandoned nuclear bunkers, hidden tunnels underneath the city centre, an enormous stadium, a beautiful museum, gorgeous parks and old Roman forts. We have the world’s oldest record shop, coastline rich in fossils and a colourful gay pride festival. Most of all, we have a lot of interesting people that inhabit the city. This website is about them.”
We are Cardiff has regular updates and for those interested in reading about stories from the city it’s well worth signing up to their e-mail subscription, which only sends out notifications of new stories and isn’t too frequent to fill your inbox.
The site also features some very beautiful pictures of residents in the stories, often posing in places of the city poignant to their tales.
