Appreciating all that makes America special

Plans for the Future

Created in March, 2009 by North Carolina writer Robin Chalkley, Great American Things has grown month by month as word of its positive outlook on America has spread. A record number of interested readers is visiting the blog each month, the blog is on an annual pace to reach a million visitors . “Not only am I getting interest from around the country, but I have subscribers in Europe, Australia, and Asia,” Chalkley said. “There’s so much about America that’s good and positive, and the appreciation of these things isn’t limited to our shores.”

To provide a complete experience for visitors, Great American Things is in the process of changing from a blog to a full-featured website, developing travel apps, and video. Chuck Robbins, President of Charlotte marketing communications firm aro, is providing public relations, social media and digital marketing for the conversion.
