We’re Now Posting Press Releases

Some of more savvy readers may have noticed that we rolled out a new category yesterday for press releases. Up until this point we’ve avoided posting press releases, although when something of significant importance has come through the wire we’d still write about it, just in our own words. We always wanted to be unique and not post the same content that everyone else was posting.

After several emails from our readers asking that we start posting press releases, we realized it’s something that many of you would like to read about here on the site. We decided that if we could roll them out in a way that doesn’t dilute the great content we have in other categories on the site, that it’s probably a good idea. So that’s why we created the new category for it. Don’t worry though, we still plan on covering the major news in our words and we’ll keep those in the categories most relevant.

For those brands and PR reps interested in sending us your press releases, you can do so through our submit news page and we’ll make sure to get those up on the site.

    Thanks for keeping them separate. Every once in a while there is an interesting one that comes along but the marketing BS gets old quick if you have to wade through it for the real-world content.

    BTW, tight work with how you are growing the 5ones site. The look is good, but even more important you realize that content is king, and obviously put a bit of effort into it.

    This is a great idea.

    Also great for the smaller sites that might want to submit some surfing news that ordinarily wouldn’t get any love from the other news wires.

    What’s up, is there anybody else here?
    If there are any real people here looking to network, leave me a post.
    Oh, and yes I’m a real person LOL.

    See ya,

    I agree. Press releases should not just be sent out blindly. More and more, in this social media age of journalism, relationship is key. Make a personal impression. Great work 5ones. Keep it up!
