Labor Day

by Michele Pesula Kuegler on September 2nd, 2013

workToday is Labor Day in the US, a day to celebrate the American workforce.  As it is a holiday and my husband and I have snuck away for a long weekend trip, I had considered making today’s post a simple one.  Maybe just “Happy Labor Day!” and a picture.  However, I decided that for this holiday it wasn’t the right choice.

PeKu Publications has been built on the work of my team and me.  Articles are due on a weekly basis, regardless to holidays or snowstorms.  When a writer is away or ill, the articles assigned to him or her aren’t eliminated; someone else fills the writing role.

As the CEO/Editor-in-Chief there have been many times when the world of the internet threw a curveball my way.  Ready to head to a function or to read a book on the couch, a work issue that needed immediate tending appeared, and my schedule was changed.  Regardless to whether a server needs to be checked, an article needs a second review, or an interviewee calls earlier than anticipated, I need to be flexible.

So, as I sit in our room at the bed and breakfast, I am writing my weekly Editorially Yours column.  With the joys of running PKP comes the responsibility to make sure that all runs well, regardless to the day or time.  So, after editing a few articles for an editor who is on vacation and completing this column, I will then go to breakfast.

Happy Labor Day to all, whether you are working or relaxing (or both) today!
