June 2014 Highlights

Over the last 6+ years, I have spent a great amount of time thinking about the building and growing of PeKu.  Initially my goals were to add content.  This meant that I spent a lot of time writing articles.  As we grew, I added more writers to help me increase the amount of articles we were publishing on a weekly basis.  As the number of articles and readers grew, so did our revenue, which allowed me to add an editor to help with overseeing all of the articles we published. PeKu continued to snowball: more writers, more

Happy Memorial Day!

Rather than sharing trivial thoughts of mine or promoting a new feature at PeKu today, I simply want to extend our thanks for all who have given freely of themselves in order to provide us with freedom.  We are truly grateful.

What I liked it about it was that you could imagine anything you wanted, shape, and reshape until your form was

Moving On

My first article of the month usually is a highlight of what to expect in the coming month.  This month I am taking a different approach to the column, as I want to focus on two members of the PeKu team.

In April's Highlights column, I wrote that we were adding three new columnists to assist with upcoming transitions.  The first of those transitions occurred at the end of April when Bea V. and Louise v. d. H. wrote their last articles for PeKu.  These two writers are special to PeKu (and me) for several reasons.
