3 WSB notes: Upgrades ahead; job listings; Seattle Magazine

NIGHT OWL ALERT: As of right now, we are 95% likely to be offline for a while starting around 11:30 tonight, to do some upgrading. We will continue our commitment to 24/7 news by using our backup site (westseattleblog.wordpress.com) if/when necessary, so please bookmark or otherwise make a note of that – anything major that happens while WSB is down (that goes for any unscheduled trouble as well as things like this), we’ll post it there, not only the latest news but also updates on what’s up with the site. You can also check in on Twitter during such times (twitter.com/westseattleblog) and when needed, we will post alerts on our partner site White Center Now (whitecenternow.com) too.

WANT TO WORK FOR WSB? We have just proudly posted our first-ever WSB job listings. Two roles we’re recruiting for — both detailed here.

0811cover.jpgSEATTLE MAGAZINE FEATURES WSB: WSB Forums members scooped us on this days ago when the magazine hit mailboxes, but since it’s finally on the newsstands, please indulge us a mention: Seattle Magazine‘s November issue includes its annual “Power List” of those whom the magazine’s editors and a guest panel consider to be some of our area’s trendsetters. Only by the grace of the trust, collaboration, and support you have invested in WSB — as the place to get 24/7 West Seattle news and to share news, information, opinions, photos, etc., with your West Seattle neighbors — has this turned into an interesting-enough enterprise for them to have approached your editor here about being part of the “Power List” feature. So we turn up on page 98, with a photo from this shoot we mentioned in August, or you can read the entire “Power List” article’s text online – we’re around the middle of the second page. Also featured on this year’s “Power List” are West Seattleite Anne Levinson, now leading the Seattle Storm, and Duwamish River hero BJ Cummings. Please let us know if you recognize anyone else on the list as a West Seattleite or someone with major WS ties (neighborhoods of residence generally weren’t mentioned in the features), so we can give them props here too. Thanks!

    Wow – Congratulations on both the Seattle Magazine honor and also for being at the point where you need to hire. It’s really fun to watch the growth and success of your venture. More and more people outside of West Seattle are aware of WSB and wish for the same type of media in their neighborhood.

    In honor of the West Seattle Bloggers being recognized in Seattle Magazine I had to go right up to Trophy Cupcakes in Wallingford to try some of those S’mores cupcakes they’ve got on the cover. Yummy.

    From the article:

    “We can’t take a day off or those people will go somewhere else,” [TR] says.


    And that “somewhere else” would be crazy, by not having our up to the second info! ;)


    Congrats to the Team!
