First Newspaper Mention For 2009

By
Home Stager with Creative Home Expressions

I still get excited when I am contacted by a reporter, whether because of an article I've submitted or directly for something they are working on.  The link below is for the El Paso Times and is my first mention for the new year. The information on the color orange and unfussy window treatments at the very end was mine as well. 

It's short and sweet, but I'm in it!

The link doesn't last long, and will probably come up as unfound at the newspaper's website after a couple of weeks.

Congratulations Kathy, that's awesome.  Why don't you see if your webmaster can take a "snapshot" of the article to post on your site.  That way, even once the El Paso Times removes the link, it will still be on your site.  You might have to check with the Times first to make sure you're allowed to do that.  Great start to the New Year!

A glossy magazine did a whole  2 page article on basically quotes from me.  The rest was also in the conversation just not listed as a "quote".

Congrats on yours.

Charlene ~ I was thinking the same thing! ; )  I do have to check with them, but there is a free Webcapture software you can download and then I can put it on my site.  And, thank you!

Michelle ~ Thank you!  I wonder if I could manage at least one mention a month? : )

Kathleen ~ I never got a magazine, but yes, they do add things at the bottom sometimes and don't attribute the quotes to the individual.   Thanks!

Fantastic way to start the new year Kathy!  May be "short and sweet" as you mentioned, but what I noticed is the article kept referring to the articles' contributers as "experts".  Now that is a great group to be a part of - Congrats & well deserved!!

Michelle ~ Yes, absolutely!  That is my thinking too.  I'm planning on more - just gotta get the brain cells moving to write some articles!

Michele ~ Thanks! That's a great way to look at it; I guess she wouldn't have contacted me if she didn't think I was an "expert"!
