I should have done this much sooner, but late is better than never, right?

I want to give this blog up to someone who will be much better at updating it than I ever was. If you are interested, please message me.

Omaha Metro followers, what say you?

We’ve seen all sorts of finance-based top 10 cities lists that either state the obvious or seem oblivious. No doubt you’ve seen them, too, and perhaps rolled your eyes: the 10 best places to get a job, own a home, start a family, hit the lottery … and of course, to buy and raise boa constrictors.
Now, it’s time for a list that really matters — especially to Money Under 30 readers. We present to you our first-ever “Best Cities in America to be Young, Broke and Single.”

Omaha made the cut!

Omaha ranks No. 2 in an MTV list of the top up-and-coming music cities in the world:

We know it seems random, but the music scene in Omaha, Nebraska has been poppin’ ever since the likes of Duke Ellington and Nat King Cole hit its speakeasies and jazz clubs back in the 1920s. And it hasn’t really slowed down since, with thriving indie labels like Saddle Creek Records boasting the likes of  Bright Eyes and Tokyo Police Club. The quintessential Omaha sound blends the college radio lover’s alt rock with peppered with small doses of country twang. 

What are some of your favorite bands from Nebraska?

That’s cool! We used to play Shelby a lot in high school. 



thenebraskadiaries asked: what part of Nebraska are you from?

Southeastern Nebraska. I grew up on a farm in a town close to David City, but currently live in Omaha. 



Omaha has the worst intersection in the US. 

I suppose it’s not the best thing in the world, but the intersection at 132nd/Industrial/Millard Ave./L St. has been voted the worst intersection in the US.
