A Brief Blog Profile: Manhattan Nest

by Thomas Hynes


The Manhattan Nest was started by a young college student named Daniel who wanted to make the most out of his Upper East Side apartment in New York. These days, the 'nest' is technically in Brooklyn. But regardless of borough, this blog is a great read chronicling one young man's trials (and yes, errors) through 'the process of DIY-ing, thrifting, and decorating (his) apartment into a nice little home.' And from the looks of it, he's doing a great job. 

Or at any rate, it looks better than my place. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my apartment. But I also sometimes get the "so did you just move in here" line of questioning. Truth is, I've been there 18 months, and just haven't gotten around to hanging that one frame... or painting that wall... or, well a lot of things. And that's exactly why I need to read blogs like the Manhattan Nest. Or better yet, I want him to take the train to my neighborhood (East Broadway, F train). I want him to give my apartment a consultation.

I look at these before and after shots of his living room and know that he could help me. I see his take on bookshelves and think to myself, 'So books DON'T have to live on the floor.' But probably, my favorite post is the most recent on 'facing yo fears.'  For one, it's a really funny post. But also, I think that being afraid is what's holding me up. But by reading up on this blog, seeing what might work and what might not, I think I'm ready to face those fears.

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.
