It’s Been Fun, Everyone!

by Live SoMa

Over the past month or so, you may have noticed a major reduction in content creation on

Due to a number of reasons, I have decided to end the website’s 3.5 year run as South of Market’s source for neighborhood info and insight.

I want to thank everyone who has been supportive and helpful over the years. This truly would never have grown without the ongoing community support, and for that, I am forever grateful.

Unfortunately, life moves on. I no longer have the time, energy or motivation to continue this site. While I had high hopes for what this would become, it was a constant battle to keep it going while somehow maintaining a ‘day job’ and a family life.

With the birth of my first son, a ridiculously overwhelming list of work-related projects, and the fact that I was recently priced out of the South of Market Neighborhood and forced to move to a part of the City where homeless people aren’t constantly pooping on my doorstep (GASP!), I have decided not to continue.

With that said, if anyone out there would like to dust off LiveSOMA, I will gladly help you take it over. I would really hate to see the site- and its years of development- go to waste. Just shoot me an email. If not, I will be pulling the plug after the new year.

Other than that… catch you on the flip side. It’s been a fantastic experience building this community from scratch.
