I’m really excited about this week’s list of recommended Areavoices blogs. I’m excited to welcome news from Black Gold Boom, a multimedia project exploring the oil boom in western North Dakota. Stories air on Prairie Public and are produced by Todd Melby. This blog is a supplement to their existing website www.blackgoldboom.com and should provide a peek at life inside the boom.
Cassie, Missy and Lynette call themselves “girls who love junk” so they created Junkfest (the event and the blog). “Now held at the Foster County Fairgrounds in Carrington, ND, the annual Autumn Junk Fest has become a festive gathering of Trash Talkers and Treasure Seekers! You’ll find tons of refurbished and repurposed treasures for your home and garden. JunkFest also hosts the best and fastest growing Flea Market in these parts!” Sounds like fun!
Back in April of 2009, a self-proclaimed, “crazy 8th grade Language Arts teacher from St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin” came up with an idea to create a place for teachers to share their professionalism and passion for teaching. We Teach We Learn is the result.
