Newsletters are New Again

It seems antiquated in the age of the FaceChats and InstaTweets, but e-newsletters are experiencing a surprising resurgence. Much like the rebirth of podcasts, a new wave of emailed infotainment has come to take over our inboxes. While the format hasn’t changed significantly since the days of OGs like DailyCandy (RIP), a well executed newsletter provides welcome relief from the usual bill notifications and cash-strapped Nigerian princes. A few of my current favorites: Tomorrow Looks Bright This curated...

But magazines require a longer lead time than web or newspapers, so getting exposure in a...

5 Tips for Public Speaking

Public speaking has dropped from #1 to #5 on the list of Americans’ top fears (it now hovers just below internet safety and random shootings), but it still makes me a little nervous. I’m getting the hang of it, though, so hosting Cincinnati Wedding magazine’s second fashion show was a lot less nerve-wracking than hosting the first. I talked about fashion trends and answered questions from attendees about everything from dress length to mother-of-the-bride etiquette.
