Humor + Humanity in Communication Paves The Way to a Great First Impression

I really am trying to write shorter blog posts–I preach it all the time and you are more likely to read this entire ditty if I stopped right after this sentence. But I promise this one is worth the extra effort you’ll require to dig in here. In fact, extra effort–just a modest amount, mind […]

Teeming With BHG/Gloor Realty Promos, Activity

For the second straight year, Inside Edge PR client Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Gloor Realty is holding a clothing drive. (The photo here is from last year’s initiative, which led to more than 2,000 items being donated.) This year, the effort launches on Oct. 17 and has been expanded to include toys. If […]

My Day As `Census Count Crusader’ in Oak Park

It had been 75 days since I last wore a red cape, but who was counting?

The other day, I posted a news release for the Illinois Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine on Triblocal.com. You can see the release (“Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine: Not All Providers Are Created Equal”) here. It joins dozens of other Inside Edge PR news releases (written, as all my work is written, in journalistic style) […]

PR For A Cause: Asian Domestic Authority

Last week, I thought I may have fractured one of my ribs. Well, more precisely, I thought that a lumbering 230-pound basketball teammate had done the damage when he barreled into me as I tried to set a pick for him. As it turns out, I think it’s only a bruise. But along the way, […]

Media Manna: My Q & A With Joe Theismann

My kids’ bedtime stories are of the Biblical variety. Just last night, I enjoyed reading to them again about the manna–the sweet-tasting food from the heavens–that God provided to Moses and his beleaguered crew of nomads. It’s the perfect metaphor for some of the assignments that I’ve been fortunate to receive over the years. In […]
