My regular Teaching My Baby to Read readers already know this, but for the past three months I have been writing a column called “I Brake for Moms” in our local paper, The Weekly Herald. Sadly, this newspaper will be closing as of August 29th. (Full article here.) At present, “I Brake for Moms” will continue on Herald.Net. Maybe someday in the future I’ll be back in print in The Daily Herald, which would be a really exciting opportunity.
For my national and international blog readers who never got to see The Weekly Herald in hard copy, please let me tell you what a meaningful addition it has been to our community. Each week the paper highlighted people in the cities of Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace who might have gone unnoticed, and shared the inspiring things they do every day. I don’t mean to sound trite, but The Weekly Herald was/is a paper with a lot of heart.
I still have oodles of column ideas floating around my head. “Help! My Daughter Likes Barbie” is just itching to get out. If you are interested in continuing to be an “I Brake for Moms” reader, please add: http://www.heraldnet.com/section/blog5205 to your roster.
Thank you for reading.
