Under New Management – Peter takes over “I Live Here: Austin”

Some of you may have noticed that I live here Austin has been idle for a little while.  Well that’s about to change soon!

Annie S did a great job getting the site set up and getting stories from many Austin dwellers.   Now that she’s leaving Austin, the torch is being passed to me, Peter Tsai.  You may recognize me from such blog posts as my very own I Live Here: Austin entry.

The old format of the blog had each person profiled writing a personal essay.  We had a lot of interest but we are all busy people that get writers’ block from time to time. So, to make it easier to participate:

I’m looking for a wide variety of INTERESTING people to highlight on the blog so that the site is representative of Austin as a whole.  If you know someone who has an Austin story that needs to be told, please forward this post!
 
Thanks, and I’m excited to start meeting and photographing other people around Austin!
 
Don’t delay:
Participate now! – Start telling us about yourself.
 
 

Calling All Stories!

 

It only took a week folks – I Live Here: Austin is up, running, and ready to go. Now all I need are volunteers!

I Live Here: Austin is part photography project, part story project, and part exploration of this great city. Inspired by Julie Michelle’s fantastic I Live Here: SF project, I Live Here: Austin is an open invitation to Austin residents to share why you love Austin. As someone who has chosen twice to relocate to Austin I know how this city, unlike any other, can get under your skin.

You can see my earlier work and get an idea of what this project will become from my previous blog,  I Live Here: Seattle.  (Don’t worry Seattle, you will soon have amazing new people working to continue your project – stay tuned!)

Best!  Annie
