What's the difference between advertising and PR? You have to pay for advertising.

PR experts are paid too.

I know it's not perfect, but I like to say it. Originally, it was propaganda, not PR. SOME PR is free, like going on talk shows, but I stopped doing talk shows. :) Propaganda is almost free: a writer, a reader, and a radio station. You must be on the West Coast or Hawaii, since you are the last one to bed usually. In another hour, this place is dead. That's why my comment is often first: somebody posts and goes to sleep, then I come along a few hours later and get 'em all, but I'm trying to cut down on that.

Yeah. Also hanging out on new can make you first.

I don't really want to be first but if a post has been sitting there for a while I figure it needs a boost sometimes. But if my, or someone's first comment falls flat, it can be the kiss of death. It midnight here, so I'm going to bed early. Drop me a line sometime. There must be a MESSAGE function somewhere.

Sleep well.
