Looking for New FriendsTwo excellent letters from Julie Leung, one in the Review and one in the Islander.
The Review letter covers "Looking for New Friends" in a lonely crowd and bemoans the Island's lack of common civic space.
Creator of the excellent Seedlings & Sprouts blog, JL looks to the Internet for a way out of these woes and asks those interested in building a community - fleshly or online - to mail her or leave a comment on her blog.
The Islander letter hails that excellent cover story and positive support of blogging in general and talks of the many new contacts she's made since the article, as a result of which JL sincerely believes that "blogging could be a tool for change and growth on the island and in Kitsap as a whole."
Aspiring newbies out there, don't pass up Julie's offer to help "anyone interested in starting a blog or meeting other local bloggers." Again, she's contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via comment on her blog.
