Story
Tagline
Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of NewsBlaze, pedantic proofreader and lover of structured writing
Introduction
Alan Gray is the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of NewsBlaze Daily News, which started as a concept in 2003, became a prototype and a beta test in 2004, then live in 2005. NewsBlaze was conceived as World News for Americans, because the mainstream media was serving up inconsequential garbage, only discovering the outside world when an American was directly involved, otherwise, it didn't exist.
Bragging rights
Honored to receive a Kentucky Colonel Commission from Kentucky Governor, Ernie Fletcher. Thanks to Captain David Page for proposing me, while he was serving in Tikrit, Iraq. He did that because NewsBlaze was one of the very few taking any notice of what US troops - and in his case, the Kentucky National Guard were doing in Iraq, and we published every single story they sent to us.

Interesting ways to promote your stories, by +Adam Nowlin 
Effectively promoting content is often the most challenging variable in the content marketing craze.  Creating a quality article is one thing, but if you have built a bill board in the desert, almost no one is going to see your information.   Meanwhile, some estimates suggest that there are as many as 2 million blog...

They tried to sell me on those high price drugs. I told them I'd have to be NUTS.

Bill and Hillary are now grandparents. Will the kid be normal, or reared to be a politician?

Dr Lois Jun is the most thorough and gentle dentist I have ever visited, and I have visited a few throughout Australia and the world. I really like that she explains what she will do before she actually does the work and she is never in a hurry to get me out of the chair to see more patients. This is probably because she was trained in Adelaide. A very pleasant experience.

Michael Larkin is an excellent partner to work with. His knowledge, coupled with his attention to detail, attention to his partners and his friendship makes him an excellent working partner. He is highly recommended.

This is a great bank, friendly staff, great service, great business services. They remember my name and company every time I visit. I can manage my account online when overseas and there is someone to talk to if I have problems. LOL, the guy on the TV may love his bank's CD, but I love this bank! NewsBlaze

Dr. Frugtniet is a great dentist. Very knowledgeable and always up with the latest treatments and techniques. Last week, I had my regular checkup and clean. As always, everything was mostly OK, except for some small damage I created. We were talking about cross-brushing and the damage it can do to your teeth. Dr. Frugtniet told me about a new technique for handling that, and he fixed my problem - quickly and painlessly. I think it is an amazing result, and now I'm being more careful about how I use my electric toothbrush.
