Feeding PKP

scoresWhen PeKu launched in July 2008, our intent was to deliver original, high quality content.  Since that time, I believe that we have met that goal.  Every week we publish one hundred (100!) articles that offer our readers inspiration for projects, information on timely subjects, and engagement in thought-provoking topics.

I believe that our articles need to be original.  Too many publications across the Internet merely provide their readers with articles created by other sources.  Rather than producing content, these other publications simply act as delivery vehicles.  At PKP, our writers create the content that our readers enjoy.

While I think the articles that we publish are fabulous, I have made an exception to our “no feed” rule.  When we redesigned our sports publication, Buzzer Eagle, two weeks ago, I decided we could break the rule.  Although our sports articles are informative and clever, there was no easy way for our readers to find scores of recent sporting events.  So, I made the executive decision to add a feed from ESPN that would deliver the latest numbers from the world of sports.

While this feed isn’t original content, I believe that adding this data to our publication will make Buzzer Eagle a more valuable resource without diminishing the pieces we publish four times a week.  I also don’t believe it is a slippery slope.  Our original content is what brings readers to PKP- people are seeking our perspective on current topics.  Thus, we won’t be adding news feeds, and we won’t be regurgitating stories written by other sources.

We will continue to provide our readers with original, high quality content, plus some sports scores at Buzzer Eagle, in order to keep our readers inspired, informed, and engaged.
