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.

I was fortunate to take a tour of Bellingham’s incredible Mount Baker Theatre and then blog about it for Bellingham Experience. I didn’t see any ghosts on this trip, but I did hear about the amazing shows scheduled for this season. Check out my Insider Blog for a taste of the tour.

A New Opportunity: Music, Arts, and Theater Bellingham Experience Insider Blog

IMG_0096I’m so excited to announce that I’ve began writing the Music, Arts, and Theater Insider Blog for Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism (Bellingham Experience).

I’ll be blogging there twice a month so be sure to check there regularly, share, and send your suggestions my way.

Time to Belly Laugh

When life feels hard, sometimes the best thing to do is find a way to laugh. That’s why I’ve always loved stand-up comedy. The comedian’s sole purpose is to make you laugh until you cry, or make you see something in a new light that you take for granted every day. That’s why I wrote this article for WhatcomTalk.com about Bellingham’s stand-up venues. Many of my friends are comedians and they work hard on their sets, so I want people to go out and appreciate this unique art form. Check them out, and have a great time while you’re at it.

Outside the Box with North Sound Singles

North Sound Singles Car Racing Helmets by Kim KerrI’m not single, but when I saw a tweet by Bellingham-based North Sound Singles (@NSoundSingles) I had to admit it made me curious. If I’m curious, then a whole lot of my single pals might be as well. That’s why I decided to meet their founder, Kimberly Kerr, and write about their approach to meeting potential partners.

Dating sites and the superficial nature of internet dating wasn’t working for Kerr so she created her own MeetUp.com group, with an old-school approach of just meeting in public places to do active, fun things…and then just seeing what happens. Check out this article I wrote for WhatcomTalk.com to learn more about the group that has now grown to more than 250 members.
