Strength in Others
Our Community - Noah's Kitchen has fast grown a reputation as one of Houston's brightest new nonprofits. This meals-on-wheels-type organization is helping feed the homeless, with an army of dedicated volunteers and leaders. Take a moment to check them out, and find out how you can support their efforts. Social Media - Muckrack is the coolest site we've seen for tweeting one-line press releases and getting the inside scoop from journalists on Twitter. There is a $50 minimum for tweeting press releases -- not sure that the value has quite been proven enough to warrant the cost. - We love that conference attendees are posting near real-time notes, and speakers are making their sources and slide decks available online, as well. PR 3.0's wiki is one our favorites. Communications Olio - A tongue-in-cheek (sort of) post on the many hats worn by PR professionals - therapist, disciplinarian, janitor.... Which one do you have on today? We don't claim to know everything -- or even have the time to attempt to sift through the vast catalogs of articles and blog posts. So, in the spirit of #SLGT (support local, grow together), we will stand on the shoulders of giants (hello, cliche) each week to pass along links that we find interest, useful or just plain fun. Leave us a comment with your recommendations for what we should be reading and who we should be following.
