Perry Hall Patch Turns 2, Still Growing
Thank you for two wonderful years, and hopefully many more.
What was I doing exactly two years ago?
A lot of the responses I got sounded like this: "There's nothing going on here. What are you going to report on?"
For the past two years, I've carried those words with me, asking myself that same question over and over again.
The most surprising part of this job, since we launched Perry Hall Patch on Sept. 13, 2010, has been the huge volume of news and information produced by this community. I can hardly keep up with this fascinatingly active place.
Of course, born, raised and educated here, I should have expected it. There was always something special about Perry Hall—the pride residents feel in living here, its safe neighborhoods and charming history.
I really do love Perry Hall.
I want readers to know how immensely grateful I am for the support, story ideas, critiques, contributions, and, of course, the comments (love or hate them, they are fun to read).
My life has changed a lot over the past two years. I've gone from a Local Editor to a Senior Local Editor, I got engaged to the ridiculously attractive Steven Pope (who I even convinced to move from Baltimore to Perry Hall) and I've made a lot of friends.
But mostly, I think I can safely say, without a doubt, that there is a lot going on in Perry Hall.
