Welcome to SCG NIAGARA!

Hi! I’m Kath. Welcome!

I am the founder and creator of SCG NIAGARA, (formerly known as St. Catharines, the GREAT).
I am from the Niagara Region of Southern Ontario. What started off as a hobby has now turned into a second full-time job.

SCG NIAGARA started off as a site promoting the people and places of St. Catharines and the Niagara Region but has since turned into something more.

'More', as in providing other areas of interest for my 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 - good or bad.

There are numerous blogs covering various topics of interests that I maintain and manage for SCG Niagara because my crazy mind never lets me rest. I'm always doing more than 10 things at once. I not only read a lot in a day but I also create a lot in a day and all of this I love! love! love! sharing with people – hence the inspiration for all this madness.

I also started taking up photography.

Since I love promoting the Niagara region, doing it through photography is obviously the only way to go. I’m constantly learning the tricks of its trade. But I'M NO PROFESSIONAL! Albeit, with the cameras of today, it seems like almost anyone can snap professional-looking pictures. Nevertheless, I'm learning it the 'hard' way - manually, when I can.

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. That also means I can't post EVERY DAY but I will post as often as I can.
I have two kind souls who also help me from time-to-time, 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' due to the political nature of their blogs.

Nevertheless, I’ll try to promote St. Catharines and the Niagara Region when I can, one business, people, place, and pet/animal at a time while providing other interests for my 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 and go from there!

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 me and once again, welcome!

P.S. I TAKE WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS AND SUMMERS OFF to catch up on all my blogs... as well as families and friends! Because as I often like to say, the internet doesn't rule me, I rule the internet! ;)

**-------------------------------------SIDE NOTE---------------------------------------**

PEOPLE COME AND GO from all my social media platforms (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram etc.) and the numbers haven't drastically increased over the past 4 years. Honestly, I don't mind and I'll explain why. There are two reasons:

Firstly, my diverse and constantly-changing interests makes it hard for any one particular type of person to 'like/join' my social media platforms. This I understand and have understood since the beginning. Most sites concentrate on ONE topic of interest - I don't!

I like to post Quotes but maybe some of you hate Quotes. I didn't care for quotes either but i've discovered I like creating them! I also like to post Random Facts, Photos, Political news, Local news, Weird news, create unique Banners, post Viral Videos, share Strange but True DEATH stories even Riddles from time-to-time. I also have a Food blog I wish I had more time to devote to, a blog called Remembering the Decades where I make lyrical music videos of classic songs and more - but all this is a great deal to put under one social platform. Perhaps you like only one of these but not all of them!

So my point is...

Secondly, and most importantly, I don't post often enough. One thing I've come to realize over the past 8 years of blogging is that in order to gain a substantial amount of followers, you MUST post regularly. That means every day, sometimes all day, seven days a week. Something I will NOT do.
I did that in the beginning for many years and although the money wasn't bad, the life I had was NO LIFE. I refuse to do so again. After all, this is just a hobby, not a business so why would I?

If you've made it this far, thanks for reading and hopefully, understanding all this... and thanks for your interest in SCG Niagara.
