View From The Pugh: Why I do it
(EDITOR’S NOTE: “Why I Do It” is an occasional series looking at my blog projects).
When I worked at The News-Herald in Willoughby, I was hired as a copy editor, but I also enjoyed writing.
The paper gave a lot of great chances to write, from covering high school football and basketball games to writing religion articles.
It was a great experience and opportunity for me.
I’ve always been interested in church events and local Christian concerts, so with the encouragement of Executive Editor Glenn Gilbert, I launched View From The Pugh, which is a bi-weekly look at events in Lake, Cuyahoga, Geauga and Ashtbaula counties.
I enjoyed the column immensely and I loved building relationships with pastors and youth leaders in addition to local and national musicians.
Several years passed and I find myself in Columbus now.
Central Ohio is a great place with so much for families to do.
And I missed writing about faith events.
So I re-launched View From The Pugh in blog format,
I started to only write about Central Ohio family and faith events, but have since expanded it to write each day about events throughout Ohio as well.
It’s not a comprehensive list by any means, but it’s a creative outlet for me I enjoy doing.
I appreciate the readership the blog has received as well as the attention from publicists in the industry.
I encourage you to check it out and share with your friends.
