Once Tacoma was named America’s most wired city. So I suppose it’s not a surprise that there are quite a few people out there who just love writing about Tacoma. Luke Byram is one such writer. He recently contacted me asking if he could do a guest post on Tacoma Stories. I told him I’d welcome the submission. Then I did some quick online research and when it comes to Tacoma websites, Luke Byram is all over the place. He’s a frequent contributor to TacomaMama.com and other local blogs. The most surprising thing about all of this is that Luke is in 9th Grade. So here are five questions I put to Luke Byram for 5 Question Friday.
1. You’re one of the youngest and most prolific bloggers in Tacoma. How did you get started writing creatively?
I am a news junkie, especially for the Puget Sound area but also nationally a bit. My quest to write started when I was in 7th grade. I stumbled upon a Tacoma news site that recruited Tacoma Community Bloggers for their community blogger program. I am contributing to feedtacoma.com and tacomamama.com.
2. What are some of your favorite things about Tacoma?
My favorite thing about City of Destiny is… Tacomans who care and want to be involved. I love T-Town’s arts and culture as well as the many amazing events.
3. What’s your favorite Tacoma blog right now and why?
There are many great T-Town blogs out there. I love food so you can’t go wrong with TNT’s Diner Blog written by the awesome Sue Kidd.
4.Where is your favorite spot in Tacoma?
A favorite spot on a sunny day in the summer is Owens Beach. I have to say there are many great spots in Tacoma.
5. What are your writing plans for the future?
Just to continue to write about Tacoma.
As always, if you think you or someone you know would be good for 5 Question Friday, email me and let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
