With the presidential primary just a week away, Pittsburgh has recieved a tremendous amount of national press and blog coverage, both good and bad.

We are partnering with the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce in a cross-blogging experiment to highlight and tell some of the stories that we know that make Pittsburgh great.   This website is a collection of blog posts that tell their own primary story about Pittsbrugh.  Our goal is to collect your stories about Pittsburgh and share across many local blogs.  We hope you will reference other bloggers posts about the project and add your comments.

This is an opportunity to connect blogs from all genre’s around an event – the Presidential Primary.

Who can share their stories?

You can.  Have a blog? Post your Pittbsurgh story and we will share it here.  Don’t have a blog? Then send us your story and we will publish it for you.

How do I participate?

Write up your story on your blog and share it with us by leaving a comment here.  Don’t have a blog?  not a problem – Just leave your story right here in the comments and we will publish it here.

Thanks for your help, and we look forward to reading your Primary Pittsburgh story!

    I wrote a little post from the perspective of a native of the Pittsburgh region who moved away, came back, and decided to stay.

    I’m enjoying all the posts and perspectives. Thanks for bringing it together!

    Well who knew, so many people love PGH as much as me? I have been away from Pittsburgh for around 15 years and have spent the last 3 trying to move back with my family. If I never make it back, I will have one regret in life, that my kids did not get to grow up in Pittsburgh. Thanks for sharing the stories, it keeps hope alive.
