This rings so true. Had a business owner send me a request for free advertising today -- while paying some ridiculous price for a single display ad in the local newspaper. They have a circulation of 1,300; we reach 150,000 to 200,000 sets of eyes a month -- and our monthly charge is less than half of their daily rate. Sometimes it's clear you get no respect with a digital-first publication.

Looking for a new "Downtown of the Month" to highlight the potential of the Facebook Page Stream from 4LiveMedia. Need an idea for a traditional downtown area with a preservation-based revitalization program, Main Street or otherwise, and which has a number of downtown merchants, civic organizations, etc. on Facebook. I am officially "on the prowl," and suggestions are welcome. There will be no cost to the community.

Found one that I think will fit nicely -- in Mississippi, of all places!

We announced the 2011 List of Ohio's Most Endangered Historic Sites this afternoon, and the media interviews have started in earnest. It's an interesting collection this year -- including one which is about to be demolished for casino parking!
