We have a longer list of what readers have to say about The Daily City. Below are a few of our favorites.
"With a plethora of articles and reviews, The Daily City also acts as a newsletter-calendar hybrid for me. For years, I’ve complained about never having one aggregated source of upcoming events in Orlando that is actually accurate. Thanks to the socially advanced heavens (and Mark), The Daily City is a well-manicured and marvelously maintained site that I can always depend on for a current calendar and a review of Orlando’s latest hot-spot. Now my day consists of waking up, putting on a cup of joe, opening my computer, going to thedailycity.com — well, going to my Facebook page — then going to The Daily City and seeing what’s going on in Orlando. Yesterday, Beth and I went to our first Food Truck Pod behind Firestone — thanks to Mark and his team. Now you are looking at the newest member of Food Truck Groupies! -Why Are you Awesome? | May 16, 2011
"Maybe, like me, you’re one of the readers who rely upon (Mark Baratelli's) indispensable arts and events website TheDailyCity.com, where he blogs and tweets on any and everything stewing in Orlando’s cultural cauldron (somehow scooping us even when he’s out of town – how does he do that?)." -Orlando Weekly | July 9, 2009
"But my favorite things about Orlando’s art world in 2009 were two people who expanded my definition of what it means to be an advocate for the arts.... Mark Baratelli, even while often living out of town, broadened his indispensable blog, The Daily City, to encompass Meeting of the Minds (MOOM) meet-ups, Taco Truck Taste Tests and the vehicular-venued Mobile Art Show. If everyone in Orlando who claims to care about the arts had 1 percent of Baratelli’s... energy and commitment, this city would be a world culture capital." -Orlando Weekly | January 6, 2009
"I believe your web site truly elevates Orlando to the level of other metropolitan cities, and I stop by at least once a day." -Stephanie Pancratz | July 7, 2009
"If you live in Orlando, this is THE news social/cultural news source." -Dawn Schreiner | January 8, 2010
"I gotta say the perfect sorta arts blog for me is thedailycity.com. It covers so many cool corners of the arts realm in O-Town. There is so much on that blog that I didn't even know was HERE in the city. It sorta makes me fall in love with Orlando." -Beth Marshall | September 9, 2010
"I’ve been living her in Orlando for 22 years... You have opened my eyes up to a few new things that I wasn’t aware of. That surprised me. I thought I knew this town inside and out. I enjoy reading your blog on a daily basis. Please keep doing what you are doing." -Brian OHalloran | August 3, 2009
