In this case, the barn in question is SourceBarn.com. What is SourceBarn, you ask? Well, it is a free web-based service connecting Alabama journalists looking for experts or Regular Joe's to interview with PR and marketing types, small business owners, non-profits and anyone else who would love to score some ink.
Why are you doing this for free, you ask? Good question, I ask myself that as well. Call it good karma, call it good PR, call it a good idea and I couldn't stand the thought of someone doing it before I did. Bottom line... please go to the site, check it out. If you wish your organization got quoted more often, sign up and read the posts daily and RESPOND TO THEM. It's that simple. Oh, and go tell someone else about it. The more people who use it, the more valuable it becomes.

I'm super-excited about our latest undertaking... even though it won't make me a dime! An excellent group of Beta Testers has begun trying out my new resource that will put reporters and PR types together on a daily basis to share sources and story ideas. Details to come!
