Greetings! Glad you could join us. Eastlake Ave. is the news and community blog for Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood. We need your help to make it a success.
I’m a long-time print journalist, most recently with the Seattle P-I (and we all know how that ended). Since the sale of the P-I was announced in January, I’ve been meeting members of Seattle’s blogging community and learning what they’re up to. One focus is to bring journalism to the community by using blogs as the publishing tool instead of printing presses. Which sounds like a great idea to me.
So, I’m launching this blog as a place for those of us in Eastlake to talk about and report on our community. The site needs your participation (news, photos, comment, etc.) to make it go. I’ll provide some of the content but I’m looking for suggestions, input and other members of the neighborhood to help out. Become a member (it’s free) and share what you know and love about Eastlake.
In my case, I’m currently in my third turn at living in the Eastlake neighborhood, and I think this time it’s going to stick! I’ve lived on a houseboat on Fairview, in an apartment on Minor and now in a condo on Franklin. I was meant to be here.
If you have questions, please get in touch. My e-mail is under the About Us tab. Thanks for checking the site out!
