One of the many things on my to do list for the blog is to revisit the idea of our very own t-shirt shop. I have long had a little shop with Spreadshirt, but I am not comfortable trying to promote t-shirts that were not actually here in Pittsburgh. I have been pondering the future of the blog, it is about to turn 12 this fall and if it is time to retire or recruit new bloggers or what should happen next (I am open to any and all ideas so them my way)!

This weekend, young preservationists from Buffalo, Ohio, Wheeling, and Indianapolis will descend on Pittsburgh for the Rust Belt Coalition of Young Preservationist Summit. This is a big deal for Pittsburgh and for the historic preservationists who are coming to town.

2013 has been a busy year of blogging! Over the summer we had a great group of interns (aka the yinzterns) who took to the streets and put together some impressive guides to Pittsburgh. Most of the posts on this list were written by our interns over the summer.

I’m thrilled to post the last four items for the 12 Giveaways of Pittsburgh! It has been so much fun to write about these businesses and share these items with you. As I put this list together, I realizes that almost all of the owners of the businesses featured on this list I have met and become friends with because of IheartPGH. Pittsburgh is filled with some amazing small business owners and I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to get to know these folks and share their businesses with the readers of IheartPGH.

I’ve got two great projects to share with you, both are related to sharing stories about rustbelt cities including Pittsburgh.
If you have been a regular reader of IheartPGH over the years, you have probably read a few of our posts about GLUE. GLUE stands for Great Lakes Urban Exchange – a project that was started by a Pittsburgher and a Detroiter (is there a Detroit equivalent to the word Pittsburgher?). I’ve been fortunate to attend many of the GLUE conferences, the most recent conference was held in September 2011 here in Pittsburgh. Through GLUE I have had the chance… Read the rest
