I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for tuning in, and to fill you in a little bit about what we will be doing with this blog. We will be following a national monthly holiday to connect our thoughts and posts about localism. Each month we will have a spotlight, the basics of that aspect of localism, examples, implementations, ways you can become involved, and more! If you ever have any wants or suggestions about topics, please don’t hesitate to contact us, as we want you to be just as involved and interested in Localism as we are.
So, to kick us off, this week was small business week, and while many of us probably did not even know about it, we personally challenge every one of you to celebrate this holiday by shopping at one of your small local businesses or even just saying hello to the staff, we know they would appreciate it!
Our very first spotlight is you! You supporting your hard-working local businesses and feeling good about it!
