Pioneer Content’s temporary splash page goes live
I’m extremely proud to report that just a few days ago, the temporary splash page for my online journalism portfolio and content creation service, Pioneer Content, made its official internet debut. The site’s conception and design are the work of the very talented Carrie Voegel, who studied graphic design at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University. Carrie and I will both be building out the remainder of the site this week, so if all goes well the entire thing should be fully functional before long.
In the meantime, please feel free to try out the page’s (admittedly minimal) links. And if you’re so inclined, scroll to very bottom of the page to check out all the fun stuff we have for sale, including very rare copies of the premiere issue of Young Pioneers. This issue’s theme, Independent Travel Icons, proved so popular that the magazine was nominated for the prestigious Independent Press Award by the Utne Reader. The nomination was especially unusual because we had published only one issue!
Interested readers, by the way, should snap this issue up before it’s gone forever, as supplies are relatively limited. Featured icons include Lonely Planet’s Tony Wheeler; Vagabonding author Rolf Potts; war correspondent Robert Young Pelton; Holly Morris of the PBS program Adventure Divas; travel writing legend Jeff Greenwald, Transitions Abroad contributor and Work Your Way Around the World author Susan Griffith; James Crotty and Michael Lane (aka the Mad Monks) of Monk magazine; former Lonely Planet literature editor Don George, and many more.
