SUNDAY: SouthWest Stories spotlights WSB in year 10

2 pm tomorrow at High Point Library (35th SW/SW Raymond), your WSB co-publishers are honored to be in the spotlight at SouthWest Stories. That’s the monthly speaker series co-presented by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and the Seattle Public Library. But since we’re much more about writing than speaking, the format is a bit of a changeup – it’ll be a conversation with SWSHS executive director Clay Eals, himself a longtime journalist. The occasion: This year, we’re marking WSB’s 10th anniversary as a 24/7 news source for the peninsula. See you at the library!

    You all did a wonderful job, with Clay interviewing, Tracy and Patrick answering, and the support crew too.  I have some interesting thoughts about your interview:

    1. That it was all-too-appropriate that fire trucks went by and you each took turns monitoring the “situation” while the other answered the question, all caught on video.
    2. That your CSIHS video story was posted at 2:20 pm, when you were in the middle of being interviewed.  I can only hope that was either another contributor or a time delay….
    3. That you spoke on the fact that you don’t integrate an editorial/opinion  element to your work.  So I started to wonder, what is it then?  You’re obviously smart, experienced, and thoughtful, but other journalists may be as well, and they just don’t achieve the same result.  I realized the word I’m looking for is “invested”, and I mean in heart and soul, not time (although there is that too).   No one surpasses your level of investment.

    Thank you for being a voyeur, and a support, at all my and Matt’s accomplishments and woes. And thank you for making our community even more special to us, by sharing with us the news of others’ accomplishments (and woes) so we can be a support to them.
