Channeling Mount Baker Theatre’s Ghost Judy

mount-baker-theatre-momixWhen WhatcomTalk.com asked me to write from Mount Baker Theatre‘s Ghost Judy’s perspective, I thought maybe I was being punked. Someone might pay me to do that? How much fun is that? Turns out, a lot of fun.

Check out the first of what I hope are many posts that I wrote on behalf of the friendly ghost Judy.

Traveling Green

fiddlehead-tours-sarah-graingerCaring for the environment has always been a part of my core and appreciating it in the outdoors is one of my favorite things. So at Bellingham Green Drinks, when I heard Sarah Grainger’s 30-second pitch about her new tourism company, Fiddlehead Tours and Adventures, I knew I had to write about her and her business. She called it “Holistic Commodity Tourism.” Its a technical term for a way we could all look at every day life, or a a vacation, or both. Its a kind of tourism that considers the big picture, treading lightly, and leaving no trace. I was delighted to write about her for WhatcomTalk.com. Not only is she a savvy business person, she knows how to have fun too. Go check out her vision and be inspired.

I’ve discovered so many great bands for the first time at Bellingham’s Wild Buffalo. I enjoyed getting to know owner Craig Jewell better in order to write this Insider Blog for Bellingham Experience Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism. We are so lucky that they bring such a variety of music to our town. Take a look at why I keep going back.

Writing About Amazing People Like Natalie Ransom of Pozie by Natalie

Pozie By Natalie Bouquet by Katheryn moran-photographyI’m incredibly blessed that part of my job has become about telling other people about some of the AMAZING humans that I get to know in my community. Natalie Ransom of Pozie by Natalie is one of those people.
I’ve always loved flowers…who doesn’t? But what she does with them is pure art. Her creativity and bold, confident personality inspired me to write about her for WhatcomTalk.com. I’ve loved getting to know this fellow Michigander better (and she’s a Yooper to boot!) and I hope you will to. You can check out my article about her and see more examples of her incredible floral work on her her website, Facebook, and Instagram. The next time you need more flowers in your life, you’ll know exactly who to call.
