A blog at rest tends to stay at rest
A blog in motion tends to stay in motion and once the writing stops it tends to stay at rest. MyWHaT is no different.
Despite my best intentions on maintaining two blogs, after being elected as a Traverse City City Commissioner 15 weeks ago, I’ve yet to find my voice. It’s not that the commission is all-time-consuming, but I’ve purposely given myself extra time to learn, research, and find a rhythm.
MyWHaT had a great run of four years with over 200,000 views, around 1,258 posts, and countless connections made. Although I won’t be writing on, it will remain up as a resource.In the future, who knows. For now, it will sit idle.
I’ve included below links to the top 25 posts of all-time. I will continue to share tidbits on livable streets and public spaces on the MyWHaT Tumblr, my Twitter account, and the MyWHaT Facebook page. In the future, once I’m on solid footing as a commissioner, I plan on blogging on Traverse City specific issues at aStrongTraverseCity.com.
Thank you for reading, your encouragement, and your support. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
