The Ravenna Blog has joined the Seattle Times Local News Partnership!
All this exposure is great for the site, of course, but what do YOU get out of it? Here’s a small list:
- The ability to publish photos from the Seattle Times when appropriate – like the one from the Seattle Sketcher, Gabriel Campanario, that was used in our interview with Harissa’s Walid Alabtan
- The potential to work on collaborative projects – “Invisible Families” was one of these projects
- Greater communication and coverage about local events and news in our area that may be of interest to a wider audience
- Educational opportunities for yours truly to learn more about journalism, media, and the like, as an investment in the work the Ravenna Blog is already doing
- and probably more!
Even though the Local News Partnership project has been around since August 2009, it is still evolving. I’m very pleased (and a bit proud) that we’ve been included in it (WE meaning you, too, dear reader), and look forward to the future of this partnership.
UPDATE: The Seattle Times Local News Partnership map has also been updated.
So happy to help fill out the coverage in Northeast Seattle.
