Welcome to SCG NIAGARA!
Hi! I’m Kath.
Welcome to our site! I am the founder and creator of SCG NIAGARA, (formerly known as St. Catharines, the GREAT).
We are from the Niagara Region of Southern Ontario. What started off as a hobby has now turned into a second full-time job.
'More', as in providing other areas of interest for our Niagara readers and readers in general, because it’s also about entertaining, enlightening, educating and keeping up-to-date with what’s going on in the world around us.
Currently, I’m the only author and photographer of this site but hopefully, that will change in the future. My mind never lets me rest. I'm always doing more than 10 things at once (a default in my genetic makeup I often like to say), otherwise I’m not a happy camper. I read a lot in a day and I love! love! love! sharing stuff with people – even my personal life stories, opinions, photos, and creations, from time to time.
We have numerous blogs covering various topics of interests that I maintain and manage for SCG Niagara and as if that wasn't enough, I’ve gone and taken up photography!
Since I love promoting the Niagara region, doing it through photography is the only way to go. I’m constantly learning the tricks of its trade. Albeit, with the cameras of today, it seems almost anyone can snap professional-looking pictures. Nevertheless, I'm learning it the 'hard' way - manually.
I also work full-time because as I often like to say, 'these sites won’t pay for themselves'. Unfortunately, that also means I can't devote my time fully to my readers or share as much as I'd like to. Thank goodness I have two kind souls who help me along the way, sharing with me articles of interest which I pass on to you! I would love to give them recognition, but they prefer to remain anonymous and 'behind the scenes'.
Nevertheless, we’ll try to promote St. Catharines and the Niagara Region when time allows, one business, people, place, and pet/animal at a time while providing other interests for our viewers because everyone knows variety is the spice of life!
The Niagara Region has much to offer – so why not start with that great city, the city of St. Catharines, aka St. Kitts, aka the Garden City (where we are based out of), and go from there!
So what’s up with the ‘visitors’ globes’ we’ve been asked.
Well, it's my 'signature mark' on all our blogs if you will and since we know who visits our sites (as do most site owners), I thought why not show YOU who visits also! Of course, not every visitor is shown on the globe since some use IP blocking – but you get the picture!
Any other suggestions, comments or ideas are always greatly appreciated and can be posted in the comments section below or use the CONTACT FORM to your right.
Many thanks for joining us and once again, welcome!
P.S. We take Sundays and holidays off to catch up on our websites - and family and friends! ;)
