A Brief Blog Profile: Gardening Nude

by Thomas Hynes


I know what you're thinking. You see a blog name like Gardening Nude and you're thinking: 'Watch out for the hedge clippers!' Then you might next say something along the lines of: 'Hide the garden shears!" At which point, I'd have to tell you A) this isn't that kind of website, and B) grow up. Gardening Nude is a green blog. The nudity in question refers to living simply. Or better yet, it's a metaphor for a cleaner, less encumbered way of living. Still, be warned. If you're going to google "Gardening Nude" make sure it's not set to return images. Seriously. 

Gardening Nude is run by Shawna Coronado.  Today, she speaks at events and writes books. She also still maintains this blog, too. And on the blog, you'll find tips on eco travel, money saving tips, green family issues, and lots more. In her own words, she says, "Gardening nude means to live more simply. When you choose 'Gardening Nude' you choose sustainability over wastefulness."

Gardening Nude has a ton of everyday, practical tips. For instance, you can save water (and money) by turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth. There's also this piece about how eating organically is good for your health, the environment and your wallet. These are real things that people can do immediately to start living greener. And the site's full of dozens of more posts just like these. The site's got a lot to offer.... Just don't expect any nudity.

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.
