Aim High is back in the saddle

Catching up with changed trends!

It’s been a while since the last postings but I’m geared up to hit the blogging trail again.

Aim High will be different though. The reality is that Social Media is a much more direct way to connect and it takes a lot less time. That’s pretty well been my big shift this past year.

There’s still a need though for sharing information that’s longer than a Tweet or a Facebook click and share. That more in-depth aspect will happen here – only more periodically – in conjunction with my Twitter and Facebook accounts. Click on the icons in the right hand column to follow those feeds.

There are other changes too. The blog itself is refreshed with a more mobile-centric theme. There are content changes as well. Aim High will focus on my take re the goings-on … be they civic, social or whatever my ponderings are as I walk the dogs.

I’ll continue to actively promote others’ perspectives on issues as well as community organizations and events but that will be solely through the sharing of their Social Media feeds rather than posting directly here on Aim High.

Living in Salmon Arm

Some variant of What’s it like living in Salmon Arm is the most common search query in clicks reaching Aim High Salmon Arm. Our Mayor Nancy Cooper has urged people to use social media to promote our city and it’s a good idea.

Supporting Chris George – Paying Back and Forward

I don’t really know Chris personally but I do know that as a candidate in recent federal and provincial elections he has offered up his time and efforts (considerable) for the betterment of this riding. He has raised the bar for political discourse.

As a campaigner, he has been thoughtful, articulate and passionate about supporting what is best for this community.

Right now, because of a serious illness, Chris and his family could use our support too. Please consider doing so.
