PeKu News- September 2015

Monday, September 28th, 2015

PeKu-News_2015_3The month may be nearing its end, but there’s still time to acknowledge a few of the occasions that we are celebrating within the PeKu family.

First, our editor, Kim Hays, is celebrating her second anniversary as Associate Editor. Under Kim’s watchful eye, all of our articles are reviewed for not only grammar and punctuation but also for the quality of content. The original articles that are published daily all receive their polished look from her dedicated work.

Second, one of our columnists, Joe Lawrence, reached a milestone with PeKu. This September marks his second anniversary with us, but this is only part of the time he has spent as a columnist for PeKu. Joe wrote for a little over two years for PeKu prior to a two-year leave. Thus, Joe actually has been with us for over four years, but September marks his new anniversary date.

Third, just last week PeKu reestablished a partnership with BnBFinder. We worked with them for almost three years from 2012 to the beginning of 2015. We took a brief hiatus this year, as we worked on different food projects at Think Tasty. Realizing that the best fit was the partnership with BnBFinder, we have begun sharing their recipes with our readers again. Be sure to check Think Tasty on Fridays to see what their newest food ideas are!

It sure has been a great month at PeKu. I’m looking forward to even more excitement in October!

PeKu Highlights- September 2015

Monday, September 21st, 2015

EY_September-Highlights_500x300I usually publish the month’s highlights on the first Monday of the month. However, on the seventh of September I wasn’t quite ready to share our news. All of the changes had been put in place behind the scenes, but they weren’t visible to our readers yet. I decided it would be better to delay this column until things were fully up and running.

Now that the changes have been made public, what are some of the new additions?

  • We are refining our editorial calendar.
  • We have added videos full of wedding inspiration to Here Comes a Bride.
  • We have added educational cooking slideshows to Think Tasty.
  • We are adding more connections between our publications, such as highlighting crafts from Holidays Helper on Your Parenting Info.

Not mentioned in the abbreviated list is that we also made some subtractions. In order to focus better on those projects and more, we have decided to downsize from a family of eleven publications to six. These decisions are never easy, but this one feels like it will help us grow.

Although we did cease publishing on those five websites, don’t fret too much. We have kept all of our publications live. What does that mean? It means that if you have a favorite cocktail recipe on Parched No More or liked a remodeling suggestion on ‘Bout Home, you still can access those articles. While we aren’t publishing new content, we’re still proud of all we’ve done and have left it to be enjoyed.

Although the scope of PeKu has been reduced, the content will become even heartier. Look for new article series, interviews with experts, and more video content. We look forward to being an even better resource for our audience.
