Start of Summer for Peku

rsz_peku_penguin_printAs I typed the title of this post, I wondered how many people would notice the capitalization of Peku. I am keenly aware of it, but I think for others it isn’t obvious. This company, of which I am the CEO and Editor-in-Chief, is PeKu. Our mascot, the ever adorable penguin, is Peku. Thus, today’s post is focused on her.

As I sat down to write this morning, I didn’t have a topic in mind. It’s the fifth Monday of the month, which means there is no assigned category, providing more freedom for topics. My mind drew a blank. I searched Monday hashtags for inspiration and stumbled upon #MotivationMonday. What motivation could I find for today?

For us in NH, this is the first full week of summer, as school just ended last Wednesday. Summer led to thoughts of travel and family get-togethers. I’ll be spending some time in Kentucky, Florida, and Canada. Most of these are quick weekend trips, but they will give me time to see new-to-me locations. Next week I’ll enjoy some time with family at a mini-reunion. As I thought about these events, I realized it was time to get Peku back on the road.

Peku was created as a symbol of PeKu Publications about two years ago. Last fall we had an intern that created a #WheresPeku campaign. When his internship ended, I continued her journey for a few months but have let it wane in the past few months. As I thought about motivation this morning, I thought about reinvigorating Peku.

While I don’t have a tremendous amount of travel ahead, it’s time to get Peku on the road with me again. Be sure to follow Peku on Twitter and Instagram to see her journeys, near and far, over the coming weeks and months.  And, of course, be sure to follow PeKu for our latest articles.
