When marketers and ad execs are throwing out the phrase “earned media”, they really mean written content versus pushed ads. We all know that some written content is now being moved into the category of “sponsored content”, like you see on Buzzfeed and other advertorial content sites. The truth is that this term is not used enough to convey the division from other online advertising/marketing formats. If you ever come across a situation where you need to give your blog content channel the proper categorization to perspective advertisers, you just might consider calling it an earned media option. Otherwise, the only other option is paid media, and most of the bloggers subscribed to the Mom Blogwire are a bit above the pay grade of generally accepted banner and CPC ads. As a community, it makes sense to push the earned media description, and it will be more profitable for the entire community in the long run.

His Life Magazine

BlogPrWire’s featured blogger this week is:  Susan of Busy Bee Lifestyle

Susan’s blog was created to share fabulous ideas that would make it easy for busy women to add special touches to family life! The blog covers topics like entertaining, cooking, gift guides, trends, parties for children, fashion, books and much more.

You can tell she loves her blog – the attention to design and navigation makes visiting a pleasure (which wasn’t so great for us at BlogPrWire as I spent much too long browsing and browsing).

The Busy Bee Lifestyle blog is managed on a hosted WordPress platform. When asked what WordPress plugin tops their list, Susan shared that the Quick page post redirect plug in for WordPress is a must have for every WordPress hosted blog.

What are the goals you have for the Busy Bee Lifestyle blog this year?

“One of the most optimistic goals that I have for Busy Bee is to be featured on a national television or cable show! On a more reasonable note, I am continuing to seek FaceBook fans, Twitter followers and subscribers to our newsletter. “

Can you share a blogging tip with other bloggers reading the Blog Pr Wire blog?

” The best thing that I have done is to develop a terrific relationship with the NBC Philadelphia television studio where I have been filming live segments for The 10 Show for the past two years. It’s been great exposure for the site and our blog readers really seem to enjoy the filmed segments that we post online.

Also, one of the most popular features of Busy Bee is our “Tip of the Week” which is mailed to our subscribers on a bi-monthly basis. The tips vary widely in subject matter, but are always informative and fun! Here are links to two of my favorite, recent tips:

Being a PR friendly blog

Posted by BlogPrWire Categories: Blog Tips, Uncategorized


Bloggers are often looking to work with the top brand name PR reps. Are you ready to start working with the big brands?

Here are some of the things you NEED to be considered a quality media partner with professional PR Reps:

1) Quality Site Design & Layout.

  • Crisp images, easy navigation (navigation bar & footer), min 550 pixel width main content section.
  • Is the content you are displaying actually what is featured on your page or is your layout overwhelming the content? Do not use dark backgrounds with light text. The content/copy is what your blog is about and it has to be readable and the focus of the reader.
  • No over crowding. Keep your side bar content to a minimum. Feature a few buttons and move the rest to pages.

2) Full disclosure AND transparency.

Have a disclosure policy clearly linked from your footer.

Create a CONTACT page that is clearly linked within the TOP fold of your site. Visitors should not have to scroll down to locate your conact page.

3) Understand real Internet metrics.

For every 1000 views of content  a PR Rep or advertiser can expect to see 1-3 clicks. Do you have enough unique visitors to ensure their campaign will succeed?  If not, what are other benefits you can provide? (see number 5)

4) Be ready for contact.

Know your traffic and visitors. Google Analytics is free and will tell you who visits your blog. This is information needed to make sure your offers and content are relevant to your visitors. This is what PR reps and advertisers want to know.

Have a PR Contact Page that provides the information PR Reps are looking for (which is similar to an advertising Media Kit). Include a form to make it easy for PR Reps to contact you.

5) Syndicate and cross promote. If you don’t have the site visitors on your blog- maybe you have them in other places. Consider posting your features and reviews on other blogs as a guest writer, on your facebook, microblogged on twitter, as an amazon review, included in articles that your distribute elsewhere… get creative.  Let Pr Reps KNOW you do this.

7) Understand what SEO is. A good PR Rep will review your content before establishing a relationship. Are you practicing good SEO practices?

Use keywords your visitors would use in search engines within your reviews (this will bring you future traffic that is relevant to your blog ), this give value to your posts that PR Reps will be looking for when they consider a partnership with you.

  • Ensure your reviews link back to your media partners pages.
  • Use perma links and title your post and urls with keywords.
  • Have unique meta tags in each post.

8) Be a publisher and a blogger.

Take the time to learn the ropes. Blogging isn’t really all that new. Parents were blogging in the 90’s, they just had to write each and every page in html. Blog platforms (content managers) are new.

Design, content, getting quality visitors; these are all well tested , well established. The Internet industry knows how people interact with web browsers. They know what works – you should too. Don’t waste hours,weeks, years, learning by trial and error. There are a lot of FREE resources out there. Dedicate time to learning the ins and outs of being a Internet publisher.

Featured Blogger- Naptime is My Time

Posted by BlogPrWire Categories: Featured Bloggers, Uncategorized

BlogPrWire’s featured blogger this week is: Emily of Naptime is My Time.

Emily established her blog in late November 2010, but did not commit to writing regularly until February 2011. She’s new to the blogging community, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at the great custom theme and graphics on her blog.

We’d say Emily understands some webmaster fundamentals, her blog is easy to navigate, the template meets Internet advertising standards. Her posts are a mixture of parenting resources and blogging resources. She started blogging as a way to share my thoughts and reflections on what I have learned about being a woman, a wife, and a mother.

What is your blog about?
Nap Time Is My Time is about one mom’s dreams of eco-friendly domestic bliss. I write about parenting, being a mother, a woman, healthy recipes and whatever interests me at that particular moment.

Share a tip you use to promote your blog:
In order to promote your blog, it is important to read other blogs and comment on them too. This will let other bloggers know that you’re “out there.” Also, I do not follow every blog that I visit, or every blogger that visits my blog; I follow those which add value to my life.

More about your blog and your goals for the year:
This year, my biggest goal is to grow my readership through consistent posting on topics directly related to eco-friendly living. You’re likely to see posts about growing an herb garden, favorite e-books and choosing organic dairy products for your family.

Another goal I have is to review, and host giveaways, for eco-friendly products.
Emily bloggerEmily is a former work-at-the-office wife turned stay-at-home mom. She enjoys writing, photography, cooking and many other activities. She loves a good Margarita and {some} reality TV. She and her husband married in 2005 and welcomed their first child in 2009.
