Green shoots. Local produce.
The 'Here's One I RE:made earlier' competition rumbles along.
One thing is for sure, I am pretty much going to have to extend the deadline.
Especially as I am seeing a measure of success drumming up more entries, after the brief flurry when it appeared.
Wracking brain cells, I have decided to punt out a PR to any place that might carry the story, from blogs to trades. In fact the only media sector I doubt will be much interested is the Guardian's direct competitors.
And I have even seeded them, at least via online opportunities.
We do need more entries to make this worthwhile for all concerned.
However, it was nice to see that it was considered worthy of note in our local papers, to whom I send my thanks. However, as a lesson in PR practice it was/is sobering, as to get these took two weeks and several reminder calls. Now, all I need to do is the same in several thousand more UK towns and I'm golden.
