Wallyhood is the Wallingford, Seattle, neighborhood blog. Our goal is to foster community and communication between Wallingford residents by creating a voice and storyline for residents to follow and to participate in. We cover local personalities, events, daily life…anything and everything relevant to our neighbors.
Wallyhood was founded in January of 2009 by Jordan Schwartz. In the early, chilly days of 1993, Jordan Schwartz and his black and white cat Fourth moved to the same little house in Wallingford they share today with his wife, Michelle, son, Zevin and bees, numerous and unnamed. Days find him working on Pathable, a social networking service for conferences and events.
Jack McLaughlin joined the staff as editor and writer in 2016. Jack lives in south Wallingford with his wife and two cats. When he’s not writing for Wallyhood, he’s out skiing, hiking, climbing, biking and maybe, just maybe, working as a researcher at the UW.
Lynn Post is one of the newest members of our editing/writing team. She lives in the neighborhood with her son, Theo, and was a long-time bartender and bar manger at the Blue Star Cafe. She spends her free time cycling, camping, crafting, and clog dancing. When she is not writing and editing for Wallyhood, she is writing and editing for her freelance business, PostScripts Editing.
