Pittsblog Expands By One

I'm delighted to announce that the Post-Gazette's loss is Pittsblog's gain. Samantha Bennett, the long-time Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist who took the paper's buyout offer last December, will be contributing at Pittsblog from time to time.

Samantha is relatively new to the Burghosphere, but she knows the blogosphere. She blogged her trip across Canada last summer at 2 Weeks in the Provinces. As the co-author of Pittsburgh: Smart City (published in 2007 and available here at amazon.com), she's familiar with many of the "future of Pittsburgh" themes that Pittsblog focuses on. Best of all from my point of view, she's an experienced professional writer who currently serves as the president of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists. (Though she has left the staff of the Post-Gazette, the paper will still carry her column.) Chris Briem and I are going to have to pick up our prose a bit.

Look for her posts soon.

What a great addition to the blog. You couldn't have done better than to add Bennett's sensibility and sense of humor. Long a lurker, I'll be sure to check in more regularly to see her take on your broad range of Burgh-centric topics.
