I am still the kind of freelance writer who gets paid in resume filler instead of dolla-dollas (money). But, writing is my passion. I use this blog as a platform for refining my craft and an outlet for expression. I also write for a few local publications – one of which pays me in coupons for food at the local co-op (yay for free food!) and the other that’s just a pretty magazine and good exposure for my name.
My latest contribution to the local, and pretty, magazine – Bellingham Alive – is about an awesome local company, Sip-T. The company makes, blends and packages artisan teas sourced from mainly local and organic ingredients. Sip-T is run by a mother-daughter duo and is innovative in so many ways, from the tea blends to the packaging.
Below is my original article, the one that I submitted for publication. The second link is the severely edited, borderline hacked, article that doesn’t include some of the brightest points of Sip-T’s star. I hope you enjoy them!
