I drove through one of the worst blizzards in history for the interview because I really wanted to be part of a lifestyles magazine. Pulse turned out to be a special community within the office and out in the public. One morning at Toast in Port Jeff the waitress told me they never have enough copies in stock… Everyone has that one thing they love and it varies from person to person.
People I know always look to Pulse as the place to find things to do on the Island—we’re the go-to resource for everything happening. It’s a huge responsibility to uphold the standard that’s been going on here for 10 years. So many people know the magazine and love it and feel a part of it.
I mentioned to someone that we were turning 10 and she was shocked, she thought we had been around for much longer because Pulse felt like it was always part of Long Island life… Our website and digital efforts allow us to cultivate conversations started by the print magazine and expand it to hear back from the readers.
I was out doing a story at Blue Oyster Island Company and they were raving about the ad we made for them and the good time they had at our Rock of Ages event at The Gateway in Bellport. That typifies what we do: we get the oyster farmer and the local theater company and the city-based production all together.
