ThurstonTalk’s Favorite Features From This Week – 7/22



Earlier this week, ThurstonTalk reflected on our views from the first half of 2012.  We looked through out archives and analytical data to find the Top 5 Most Popular Posts from the first six months of the year.  It’s a great reflection of the diversity of our community.  As we look forward to these second half of 2012, I am anxious to see what emerges as the most popular posts.  We have some great articles planned – all stories about the people, businesses, and organizations making a difference in our community.

Next weekend promises to be action packed.  From the Pacific Northwest Mushroom Festival to the Tribal Canoe Journey, and a wide variety in between, ThurstonTalk will be bringing you advance information about the events as well as some onsite reporting.  Cheers!
