Last week while I was preparing to write a press release, I somehow came across a terrific website, Free Web P.R., run by fellow IU School of Informatics New Media alum and Hoosier media arts guru Neal Moore. Having grown up in central Indiana, I often saw him on Indianapolis CBS affiliate WISH-TV, my family's go-to station for local news when I was younger. Growing up, I trusted what I saw on the station, and now as a discerning adult, I'm pleased to see that Moore's still a positive influence in Indiana, and I was happy to discover the wealth of business-related resources on Moore's site.
I checked out some of his posts and recommendations regarding public relations, writing, and media in general, and was fortunate enough to meet Neal (pleasantly, no "Mr." required) at an alumni event a few days after I discovered the site. If you're a student, starting a business, looking to improve your media-related skills, or even if you want to make it big in the music industry, you should check out the site.
