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.

Be Powerful by Saving Energy

Energy conservation has always been important to me. It started with dad reminding me to turn off the light when I left the room and then extended gradually to every aspect of my daily life. I wrote last fall about how excited I was to get solar at my home. I also wrote about a movement in Whatcom County to get more solar on other people’s homes and businesses.

Energy Prize Drawing WinnerMy Whatcom County community is taking energy conservation to a whole other level. We’re competing for the Georgetown University Energy Prize of $5 million dollars toward energy-saving improvements in our community. I was excited to do my part to get the word out by writing an article for WhatcomTalk.com. Please do check it out and see what easy things you can do to save energy and help the environment.

Blasting Through the Snow

I’m excited to take advantage of the snow this season, especially since last year was lacklustIMG_3836er in the Pacific Northwest as ski seasons go. This year, we’ve been sledding and snow shoeing and the weather report promises more snow in the mountains into the spring. It was great fun to do research for my sledding article at WhatcomTalk.com.

Thank you to all my friends and family for help identifying the best spots to fly down a hill around Whatcom County.

Writing in New Places

Happy New Year!

My 2015 is getting off to a great start. I’m delighted to be writing for a newer web site called WhatcomTalk.com. It’s a website focused on providing, “…an information source that reflects the community while adding a meaningful advertising platform for local businesses.” I get to write about my friends and their creative endeavors in Whatcom County. My most recent articles are about Ryan Shupe and Jake McNeely.

I’m also contributing to Playbell, a gateway to the Whatcom County Theatre scene, edited by Riley Penaluna. My first article is about my experience as an actor in the Idiom’s 48-Hour Theatre Festival.
