Joan Concilio’s ‘Only in York County’ is one of five blogs that part of a Yorkblog.com suite of York County, Pa., history bloggers. I love the description of her blog: ‘My name is Joan and I’m a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be. I love my town. And, as a local editor, I hear every day how much you love your towns, too. So please, connect with me and let’s share what makes life in York County great. I’m here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!’

York,Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News photographer Jason Plotkin’s Gettysburg 150 photograph received more than 500 YDR Facebook likes. Here was the FB question: “Re-enactor Patrick McCarthy gets down on one knee as he asks his girlfriend Anna Jennings to marry him at the Gettysburg 150th celebration today. Wanna guess what she said?” This photo was part of the work produced by more than 40 Digital First Media journalists covering the Battle of Gettysburg’s 150th anniversary.
