PR Newswire: news distribution, targeting and monitoring

A Brief Blog Profile: BrownGirlsFly

In observance of February's Black History Month, PR Newswire's multicultural experts are profiling some notable blogs. For the next couple of weeks, we'll take a close look at a number of diverse African-American blogs that cover a range of topics, from urban automobiles and travel adventures to beauty and relationships.

BrownGirlsFly is a  self-proclaimed "melanin-infused perspective on travel." It details the travel adventures of sisters Chelle and Crystal, who worship the chance to experience as many new languages and cultures as they can firsthand. They’ve produced the blog with hopes to "encourage as many people as possible to leave their comfort zones and see the world for themselves."

Well, five continents and 27 countries later, they certainly have what it takes for a travel blog. BrownGirlsFly is infused with a plethora of knowledge, travel news, tips and tricks, as well as deals and promos. The site also features an Instagram feed, music, a reading list for those long flights ahead, and videos.

Blog posts include "Travel Etiquette: Our Top 5+ Travel Pet Peeves" and the inspiring "15 Trips We'd Take Just To See A Building," where the ladies state the obvious like the Eiffel Tower in Paris. They also point out how fascinating it would be to visit Southwest Bavaria in Germany to see Neuschwanstein Castle (the inspiration for the Disney World and Disneyland castles).

BrownGirlsFly is a stimulating blog that not only will make you want to get your passport and call your travel agent, but you'll want to book a flight to a land far, far away. BrownGirlsFly takes part in the "Traveling Brown Girls Blog Carnival," a #traveltastic series of global meet-ups hosted by @OneBrownGirl, @AbsoluteADT, @CarolACain, @Monique_Rubin and @BrownGirlsFly.

Dalia Paratore is PR Newswire's director of Multicultural Products and Services. Jessica Alas is media relations director, Multicultural Markets and Hispanic PR Wire, PR Newswire.

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.
