A Brief Blog Profile: PR In Your Pajamas

by Thomas Hynes


PR In Your Pajamas is a cute name. It's a cute image. But, more likely than not, it's a real requirement of the job. In other words, public relations is an all the time job. It never sleeps. Crisis communications won't wait for you to change into your business casual attire. It may not require constant attention, but when it does need tending, the clothes you're wearing don't matter at all.

Elena Verlee is the voice behind PR In Your Pajamas. As you might expect, she's a PR professional. And as you might expect, the blog is full of helpful, thoughtful, and often funny information. Take for example, this post where she points out how to use LinkedIn for public relations. And here, she outlines over a dozen ways to get likes on Facebook. The site also delves into some of the funnier sides of the profession. Here she illustrates some signs your pr sucks. And here she runs down some of the worst social media failures of 2012.

Elena may be a professional. And, again, she truly is. Just take a look at her resume. You'll be impressed. Still, she knows that there is a lighter side to this industry. This may be a blog about her work. But, it's still really enjoyable. You could even read it in your pajamas.

Hi Thomas! Thanks for the shoutout and profile. I thought you'd like to know that the blog was meant for entrepreneurs and those who couldn't afford to hire my agency Cross Border PR - and since a lot of entrepreneurs work from home in their pajamas...PR in Your Pajamas was a way to make the subject of PR more approachable! And yes, I often work in my pajamas! Elena

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.
