There are three main functions of the PGH blog: It’s the official channel through which I communicate events and changes in my business activities and promote my products. I also use it to share and reflect upon my experiences in running a small creative business. Finally, the PGH blog builds upon my interests, which means it is a venue for further discovery, exploration and brainstorming. Posts published by me reflect my personal views: I want to share things that intrigue and inspire me or things that I find worthy of further thought.
I attempt to fact-check everything before publication and I strive to provide accurate information, including links. However, as websites, products and businesses change, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of archived content. If you notice a mistake or an omission, please contact me. I will do what I can to correct any factual mistakes. My opinions remain my own.
My writing is not meant to intentionally malign any individual, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical appearance, body size, age, color of skin, ethnic group, physical or neural ability, culture or religion. If I express a strong negative opinion, I will do my best to present my reasoning. At times, I may sum up or refer to opinions that I disagree with or that a reader might disagree with; my opinions might also upset some readers. This is a normal part of life – we cannot all agree to agree all the time.
Any guest blogger posts and accompanying images are the sole responsibility of their creators. I am not responsible, nor will I be held liable, for the opinions expressed by guest bloggers.
