Five of them are from Pittsburgh…
As you know, this blog is meant to showcase everything involved with my city. I don’t write about the Steelers, Pirates or Penguins. I will showcase what has the city at the top of many economic and cultural lists like it’s exploding restaurant scene that was showcased in “Bizarre Foods America, the startup scene that produced Apple’s “App of the Year” and what has been called the best skyline in the country. I’ve done mostly photography posts as content but will be expanding that shortly with some Pittsburgh based fiction. I also started another blog at http://mikeonsocialmedia.wordpress.com/ to list all the social media resources, tools and ways to learn new skills online that I have discovered.
This post will list other local blogs I follow. So I don’t completely limit the audience for this post there will be non Pittsburgh sites included. Each one of these blogs has something unique about their city of profession to offer. Why should you care? I love combing the web for sites that offer something unique and valuable. Please give me any suggestions for future posts like this.
I Heart Pittsburgh is one of the first blogs devoted to everything Pittsburgh. They are currently looking for submissions for “Your Three Favorite Pittsburgh Nonprofits” that are going to be compiled in a future story.

Some people have asked me where I get the photo challenges I post. You can find them – as well as weekly writing challenges at the WordPress Post. The next challenge is to capture a moment of joy…I’m waiting for New Year’s Eve for that one.
