Hello Norwood. I'm the new editor of Norwood Patch, but "new" isn't exactly the best adjective here.
As the regional editor, I've been with Norwood Patch since it was
created. In just a couple of months, it went from being a line on a
spread sheet to becoming a reality.
Now, the goal is the same as when we flipped the switch on - always keep looking for better ways to serve our readers.
In my former position, I developed a working knowledge of the town,
reading, listening and learning from previous editors Kelly Glista and
Tamara Starr. Now, it's more of a chance to get involved on the ground
level, something I'm really enjoying. For me, It's time to move from
Norwood 101 to Norwood 401.
I'm writing this at Perks, which has sort of become a clubhouse for
Patch. Kelly and Tamara drank more than their share of coffee there,
while working on the site and meeting with people for stories.
Kelly even used the coffee shop in her introduction video to Norwood
Patch. We always joked with her about how many times she went through
Perks' front door in the video to get it just right.
Getting the site from being an idea to a reality meant putting a lot of
hard work and hours in. Both Kelly and Tamara did a great job with that.
Like the both of them, I'll be on the ground, running around from here
to there. That should be good for my weight loss program, but on the
other hand, the great Norwood restaurants could take it in another
I'm just going to have to run longer and further.
If you see a guy who looks slightly older than the one in the photo,
flag me down. I want to hear from you about what's going on in town,
what you like or don't like, and what you'd like to see more of on
A guy, not in Norwood, was really mad at me a couple of months ago.
After what seemed like an hour of him talking, he ended the conversation
by saying I was a good listener.
That's the mode I'm in right now. I'm listening and learning, so please talk to me, Norwood.
