We’re a nurse and a social worker who just keep blogging. Why? The usual reasons — to bring news to the world that is not getting covered sufficiently in the mainstream press, to sound off on the issues that are near and dear to our liberal hearts, and to rant and rave when necessary.
As the social worker of the duo (Kiersten), I have been blogging on local politics, environmental issues, and all things related to social work for over 10 years. I now mostly aggregate good stories I find on health, environmental safety, education, corporate influence, the economy, and social justice. Occasionally I might also reblog a good-looking recipe, a post related to creative writing and literature, or a piece of humor.
The nurse of the duo (Ninjanurse) has been the more regular contributor of original writing, with some of the best local coverage of the Occupy Providence movement this past year, and a devotion to off-the-beaten-track stories such as “Whatever Happened to Lia Lee?” and coverage of the Fukishima nuclear accident in 2011. Recently, Ninjanurse got sucked back into the full-time working world, so we don’t know how much she will be able to blog. In any case, we keep blogging here at Kmareka because somewhere out there in the universe, someone wants to know more about the things we’re talking about. Maybe that someone is you.
