This is our 25th areavoices digest. Shouldn’t we have a party or something? I’ll get right on that.
EXPLORE MINNESOTA – http://exploreminnesota.areavoices.com I’m really excited about this one. As you’ve heard, we’ve really been focusing lately on getting more tourism and CVB’s blogs started. This one is written by Chuck Lennon with the Minnesota Department of Tourism. Chuck was anxious to get this going. His first post features Joe Mauer singing. Can’t beat that!
PRODUCT RECALLS – http://productrecalls.areavoices.com. We hear about product recalls all the time. But who can remember all of them. That’s where this blog will come in handy. Beth Kern of the Wadena Pioneer Journal had an idea to take all of those press releases she receives from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and turn them into a blog. I think that’s a great idea.
THE PERPETUAL EXPLORER – http://perpetualexplorer.areavoices.com Written by Victoria Gelling, she says this is “a blog about the joys and headaches of travel.” I think we can all relate to this blog.
The runners keep coming on strong on areavoices:
RE-RUN: FINDING MY FEET ON THE RUN AGAIN – http://rerun.areavoices.com Blog author Sally Wurpts is a longtime runner who recently walked away from the sport. She says, “The past year has been one of the most difficult and challenging, both personally and professionally, and something had to give. So, running and I ‘took a break.’ But as I looked to start a new chapter in my life, I realized, I wanted running to come along.” This blog details her journey as she laces up her running shoes again.
The final two blogs are both education-related:
CONNECTING LEARNING TO LIFE – http://packerpaths.areavoices.com The career center at West Fargo High School has been blogging since 2008. It’s a well-written look at planning for your career path.
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA WOMEN’S CENTER- http://univwomencenter.areavoices.com
The primary goal of the Women’s Center is to coordinate efforts toward the removal of social, political, and economic barriers to women’s full participation in society.
