During the last week, two new bloggers have joined Woodinville Patch.
Please welcome Carolyn Davids, Suzanne Grogan and Alice Anne Millington, who are contributing to our Local Voices section.
Millington, a Board Certified Holistic Health Counselor with a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, writes on thinking about food differently in her first blog post on Patch.
"Self-criticism seems to tiptoe into our minds when we are trying to lose weight," she wrote. "Yet how we feel affects our ability (or inability) to lose weight."
Millington offers hope by adding "change starts with becoming actively engaged with ourselves, our choice-making, and loving 'who we are' and 'where we are.'"
In her first post, Davids writes about Swerve Robotics, a community-based youth robotics club. The team will represent Washington state at the World Championships, which will take place in St. Louis, MO in April.
But the team needs help getting there.
"The club has an urgent need to raise money for their upcoming trip," she wrote. "The cost to send the entire club and their robot to the event will be nearly $35,000!" Click here to read more and find out how you can help.
Grogan's first post, Is growth always the way to prosperity?, addressed an entirely different problem. In it she questions the American Dream.
Earlier this week, the Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church held a free screening of the movie "Growth Busters," which tackles the issue of growth and how it affects the environment, she wrote.
Want to blog on Patch, too?
Woodinville Patch is looking for bloggers who’d like to share their local knowledge, personal expertise, political opinions, or hobbies. We want bloggers who can have readers walk away feeling challenged, inspired, happy, sad or further educated on a particular subject. Photo and video blogs are also encouraged!
Keep in mind that this is not a reporting gig. There’s no need to be a published author or someone who needs to be told what to write about. We want you to write about what you want and when you want.
Blogging on Patch is just one more way you can get involved with your community and spark important discussion.
