What the H

Written by Kim Lyons on .

So, shortly after launching Pittsblogh today, this happened:
 
 
Despite our best efforts to come up with a fresh and original name for our blog, we ended up with one that is close to a City Paper blog that's about a year old.
 
Obviously, our fair city has a unique spelling (Pittsburg, New Hampshire and Pittsburg, California don't have these problems, we'll wager), so it's almost surprising that there aren't more "bloghs" in the Steel City. 
 
In any event, it wasn't the first impression we were hoping for. But it does demonstrate the vastness of the Internet, and how even great, funny, informative blogs may not be on everyone's radar.
 
So, we want to know: What Pittsburgh blogs (or "bloghs" as it were) do you visit regularly, and why?

Welcome to Pittsblogh!

Welcome to Pittsblogh!
 
The web team at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a lot on our minds (and our Twitter feeds and Facebook pages) that we would like to share with our readers. Our resident stargazer Pete Zapadka (@pzapadka) knows what's happening in the heavens, and our fashion/dance writer and online editor Sara Bauknecht (@SaraB_PG) will tell you which shoes go with that dress. You'll be amazed at the depth of Heather Schmelzlen's (@anchorlines) Twitter knowledge, as well as the online digging skillz of our fearless leader Mila Sanina (@PGMila). Kim Lyons (@SocialKimly) will keep us posted about what's hot on the PG's website, and may add the occasional Pittsburgh Penguins hockey-related tidbits.
 
But it's not all about us; in fact, we want it to be about Pittsburgh and what Pittsburghers are sharing and tweeting and talking about online and offline, inside our newsroom and beyond.
 
Pittsburgh has a lot going on, and, to paraphrase Ferris Bueller: If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
