A Brief Blog Profile: Burger Conquest

Now here's a blog you can seriously sink your teeth into: Burger Conquest

This blog is one man's "glorious pursuit of delicious burgers."

Burger Conquest is written and managed by David “Rev” Ciancio, expert burger taster and a senior creative professional with 18 years experience in marketing and business development.

Ciancio mostly covers burgers in and around New York City and has the top ones ranked on the home page of his blog. Below that list, he's got the "best outside NYC." (Sadly, none are in the DC area or maybe it's on his radar to sample some burger goodness here.) Ciancio also organizes an event called the Polar Brrrger Club, where folks gather outside in wintry conditions and eat hamburgers.

I thoroughly enjoyed Ciancio's 12 Days of Burgers - Best Burger Conquests of 2013, where he says, "every moment of this blog and especially this year was a Burgery dream come true." Number of burgers reviewed in 2013: 76. (That's impressive.)

In other food news, we reviewed several notable food blogs in 2013. Here are some of our favorites: 

A Taste of Koko is written by Jane Ko, who tells readers not to be afraid to try food in its purest form. Through her blog, Ko writes about recipes, cooking and baking tips, restaurants and product reviews.

Mobile Cuisine delivers "every must-read street food, food truck, food cart and food stand story bubbling up across the web."

Bake or Break is the journal of an amateur baker. It features recipes from some of her favorite, trusted sources as well as original recipes.

Any content creator -- whether you're a journalist, freelancer or blogger -- can set up a customized profile to receive releases based on preferences.

ProfNet Connect

ProfNet Connect is a free, interactive online community where PR professionals, experts, and media professionals can network and engage with one another. Via profiles, forums and blogs, subject-matter experts can position themselves as the go-to source for content creators and journalists. In turn, content creators can search the site by keyword to find the experts they need. The site also features enhanced profile capabilities, allowing users to easily add multimedia components -- photos, videos, white papers and more -- to their profiles.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
