July 2015 Highlights

July-Highlights_2015When I posted my first column in June, there were no changes to report, which felt quite odd to me. This month we are back to the usual pace here at PeKu. There are many new and exciting things happening!

  • PeKu celebrated its 7th birthday last Wednesday. While it wasn’t noted with great fanfare, it still is quite remarkable. I find it hard to believe that I’ve been overseeing the growth of my company for this long.
  • Although there was no cake and ice cream to mark the date, we did continue with our tradition of giving back in honor of PeKu’s birthday. For the fourth year, we gave a scholarship to a graduating senior in my hometown. The senior we honored plans to study marine biology and Spanish at Eckerd College. We wish her all the best!

To further intertwine our Fine Living publications, we made a few changes.

  •  Parched No More- We eliminated our regional wines column and are dedicating one column a week to bars, breweries, distilleries, and wineries to visit in our featured destination at Good Life Review.
  • Parched No More- We also created a quick column called Friday Fun that will highlight interesting and quirky ideas for home bartenders.
  • Good Life Review- We eliminated our Destination Detour, so that we could focus on the month’s selected destination even more. In place of that column, we have added a Travel Info piece, which will cover topics, such as how to get there, how to get around within the city, and more.

We also reshaped our sections.

  • After much thought, we are suspending publishing on My Fitness Tunes. Without videos or step-by-step photos to instruct our readers on exercise routines, it felt like we weren’t as relevant as we could be.
  • With only ‘Bout Green remaining as a Healthy Living publication, we decided to group it within our Home & Garden section. This will be a good fit, as many of our columns focus on eco-friendly ideas for the home.

Yes, July is off to a busy start! I look forward to seeing what changes the rest of the summer brings.
