Welcome to the Tide
Consider the Tide to be like one big online community board, but with a small town vibe. This website was created to curate a comprehensive list of community resources for Ventura, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara to make all of this helpful local information easier to find, especially for those who are not connected to the world of social media.
One problem that I've observed in the current state of online news and media is that real help and information is hard to find through the overwhelming amount of media content and ads. Most of the media outlets are either already well established, outdated, unrelatable, or are covered with ads. Even as a writer myself, I struggled to find an existing publication that I could contribute to.
I created The Community Tide to first and foremost organize and share all of these helpful resources. I kind of binged and purged on local and online news in search for more community resources because I feel like it's important for this list to be available online somewhere to direct people to the help they may need.

Hi there. I am @sabaitide and I would like to use my writing and website developing skills to bring my community together. I was born in Santa Barbara, raised in Ventura, reside in Carpinteria, and pretty much the best thing that I have going on for me right now is that I’m from the 805. I would like to do what I can to make my community a nicer place, so I hope this will help.
