I just joined this site. I'm not actually a planner (I decided to major in aviation instead of planning in college -- big mistake on my part), but I've been interested in the field since I was a little kid, specifically in small town and rural development. I'm from a rural community in Southwest Michigan, but now live in a small town on Minnesota's Great Plains, near Sioux Falls, SD. I'm currently employed as a freelance writer and SEO/SEM specialist, but Im thinking about going back to school for planning in the near future. I'm not sure how much I can contribute here since I'm not a professional planner, but I look forward to conversing with you guys and learning more about the field of planning.
