Bloggers trying to change views of the 'burbs

LANGLEY (NEWS1130) – If you’re thinking soccer moms and strip malls, a group of gals from the Fraser Valley want you to re-think your view of the ‘burbs.

Their blog “Sex in the Suburb” focuses on the happenings around town that don’t require you to go downtown.

Co-creator Kristyl Clark says in just a couple of months they’ve managed to get around 12-thousand followers, the goal is to change the stereotype of what it is like to live in an area like Langley.

“Boutiques, great restaurants popping up, and let’s face it is so crazy expensive to live downtown. With the new drinking and driving laws I don’t go downtown as much with my husband what with the parking and the hotels.”

She says the list goes on.

Her goal is to focus on the events you may not need to cross a bridge to get to.

“I want to make sure they get the attention and make sure people know they exist.”
