As the number of visitors to ThisIsMyCounty.com grows, it is only natural to reach out and try to find that diamond in the rough type of person, with a passion for writing and a dash of opinion to go with it. ThisIsMyCounty is a volunteer run web site, with a goal of bringing buried information about life in Harrison County front and center. More often then not, there are events and activities that take place within our county that go un-noticed,  and I find that truly absurd.

The difficulties in this simple task, is the simple action of collection. There are numerous locations in Harrison County where people go to post their events on billboards, where they hope the occassional passerby might see it. Simply going to these locations and collecting this information, once was an easy task when I started ThisIsMyCounty back in 2009. But here in the middle of Feburary of 2011, time is short, and the simple cross county treks to gather information has become a logistical nightmare in it’s own right.

If you know of an event, see a flyer, or know of an activity taking place in Harrison County Ohio, by all means let us know about it. Our current daily readership level is now hovering above 4,000 via the website, and over 3000 impressions on Facebook. The chance of someone taking notice is now far greater here, then a chance encounter at the entrance of a grocery store.

If collecting information is not an option, perhaps becoming a writer is. As you can see, we are trying to move our format to a more personal level, the actual eyes, ears and opinions of those who live within this county. Topics are free ranging, and you are left to your own devices in regards to topic and frequency. As you can see by articles written by John Lovejoy, Joe Gilchrist, and Dr. Scott Pendleton of the Cadiz Animal Clinic, topics are varied and 100% opinion.

If you have information you would like to share, or if you are interested in becoming a writer for ThisIsMyCounty, please contact us via:
