Brief Blog Profile: Birds of Unusual Vitality

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

Birds of Unusual Vitality makes me appreciate the work that goes into every cup I brew.

This is a fascinating site. It’s run by writer and photographer Eileen P. Kenny.

“Specialty coffee is an industry filled with fascinating people from every corner of the world and every background you can imagine,” Kenny writes on the blog. “The aim of Birds of Unusual Vitality is to shine a light on these baristas, roasters, farmers, pickers, workers, and everyone involved in the process of coffee production, from start to finish. I want the passion for great coffee and the pursuit of quality and sustainability to spread beyond those who work in coffee, and I think that getting an insight into the people who have that passion is a great place to start.”

I love a good story, and Birds of Unusual Vitality is filled with them. These stories even have been made into two books – Volume 1 and Volume 2.

I especially enjoyed this fascinating read on Simran Sethi, journalist and environmentalist whose “research into the agricultural biodiversity in our food systems—and the gradual deterioration thereof—led her to look into coffee, and to further investigate the complex coffee production chain and its beginnings.”

Don't let the name PR Newswire for Journalists dissuade you. This is a great service for bloggers. Any content creator -- whether you're a journalist, freelancer or blogger -- can set up a customized profile to receive releases based on preferences. You also have access to hi-res photos, media-only content such as media advisories and embargoed releases, and experts via ProfNet.

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.
