Good food and great conversation abounded at Patch’s Blogger Mix and Mingle at Tuesday. Patch staffers met up with some of our Local Voices Bloggers and made some new friends too.
Patch’s Local Voices page came to life with guests including Larry King, blogger behind posts like Differences Among Charter School Petitions and More About Smyrna Academy of Excellence; South Cobb Patch real estate blogger Jackye Mumphrey; and Leo Smith, a Patch education blogger known for his posts An Agrument for Vocational Education and .
Sarah Douglas, whose post Choosing a School: How Do You Decide? started a great conversation on Smyrna-Vinings Patch, and Ivory Dorsey, blogger behind Suspended in Ambiguity--86,400 Seconds Daily Renewed, also made appearances.
Be on the look out for some new faces on the Patch Local Voices page. Some may look familiar, like Valerie Testman, whose letter to the editor sparked a debate about the achievement gap on South Cobb Patch. Others will be new to Patch to altogether.
