MY DAILY FIND was founded by Karen Young who simply has always had a need to tell people about her finds and discoveries — the latest, the greatest, the funniest, the most interesting and the most inspiring — whether the subject is a person, product, business, event or place. Karen publishes the founding My Daily Find in the San Fernando Valley — and is the “go to” site about where to eat, shop, play, live and work — and she oversees publishers from other cities
Today, locally owned and operated My Daily Find sites are shining a spotlight on communities across the nation.
Her first (and rather lengthy foray) into this tell-tale world was in entertainment public relations. However, journalism, her first love, lured her away and she left her life as a flack behind and moved on to the Sun Community Newspapers, serving as writer and editor of its three unique weekly newspapers (Studio City Sun, Sherman Oaks Sun, Encino Sun).
Karen became intrigued with the possibilities of the internet and about telling the stories of people who live, work and create in the San Fernando Valley. In writing about these people on the world wide web, she thought she could put a “face” on the Valley and show the “borderless” global community (okay, and those just a hop, skip and a jump “over the hill” in L.A., as well as those living ‘this way and that’) that there is “a there there” in the Valley.
Welcome to the Brave New World — the San Fernando Valley online at MY DAILY FIND – up close and personal. It’s a new model for journalism on the web.
