Wow! It’s so hard to believe that we are in the month of September. School is well underway. Routines are being re-established. Sports are in full-swing. We’re all so busy. For those of you who don’t know me. I’m Britiany. Britiany Wines to be precise! My official role with the Boone County Community Chest is Board Secretary.
With my crazy mom-life as well as my other non-profit work at my full-time gig with Mental Health America here in Boone County, I can not get out there doing as much of the boots-on-the-ground work so many of the other great members of the Community Chest. But, it’s been weighing on me to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and start writing.
What you’re going to start seeing on our website are a variety of blogs, stories, etc. While I have no intentions on recreating Facebook (would not know how if I wanted to), I do want to add something special to our website and community. I want to give people a chance to hear some good advice. I want people to have someplace to go (at least with the written word) to laugh sometimes, or maybe cry. Maybe you feel like you’re alone. Maybe you don’t want to scroll through Facebook, but you want something to read while you poop. Who knows?!?! But my goal is for you to find it here…local…with people you know and trust.
I would also like to invite others to be creative and submit their expertise. Are you fantastic and baking? Shoot us your recipes! You have an idea on how to coupon? Let us get that info out for you!
The one area you will see a special emphasis on from me is our youth. People, we have a generation of wandering individuals out there. These are young people on the cusp of greatness and catastrophe at any given moment. One word can make or break them. I want what I write to our youth (or maybe the grown folks too) to REALLY feel like they have someone they can reach out to, or something to look forward to reading.
Who knows…maybe I’ll create a poetry section for kids to get their works out there. Whatever it is…it is going to be good. It is going to be relevant, and it is going to be now!
So for now, let me leave this here. If you have ideas on something you would like to know or have known, and you think we can help you get it there, fire your ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
BE GOOD HUMANS, LOVE THY NEIGHBOR, BE WHO YOU BE!!!
I AM BCCC AND YOU CAN BE TOO!
