It's time for me to say goodbye, I’m moving on as editor of Woodinville Patch but I am not leaving the community. When I launched Woodinville Patch in December of 2010, I hoped I was producing a website that would be a place the community would come to discuss local issues, swap stories, post events and read the latest news on what is happening in Woodinville. My hopes have been realized, you have opened your arms and embraced Patch, and I am grateful.
One of the interesting things I’ve learned about myself from running the site is that I love social media and that is where I will be heading next in my career. But I will not be leaving Woodinville, this is my home. This is the community we chose to raise our children in when we moved up from Southern California, and it was a great choice. The people of this community are friendly, passionate and caring, and I am happy to call you neighbors.
I am stepping away from the site, but fear not faithful readers; I will leave you in good hands. I will be overlord of the site helping guest editor Robert Baldino until the new editor arrives after Labor Day. Lisa Baumann (no relation to the city council member) is moving from Minnesota, where she has been , to live here in Woodinville and take over as local editor. She is excited to be coming here and is an avid cyclist so watch for her on the river trail!
Oh, and the headline reference, for those of you who are not SciFi fans, is from the last book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide by Douglas Adams. Watch the video for the very silly opening song of the movie.
