I got this email today from PRNewsWire:

About PR Newswire

PR Newswire (PRN) is a global news distributor transmitting press releases to the media and the investor relations community on behalf of international clients. Our clients include corporate companies, small and mid-sized businesses as well as some trade unions and non-governmental organisations.

Our news content is distributed to the media through our affiliate news agencies. We also have partner agreements with more than 190 websites and online services in Europe. We provide the content in XML via FTP and we often tailor content using filters to match a website’s profile. For example, some websites only want financial news content, others want only healthcare or technology content etc. We can also filter the press releases more specifically, i.e as computer hardware, computer software, high tech security etc.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information. I look forward to hearing from you.

The funny thing about this is that I haven’t posted a press release forever. However, I think I will go through with this and see how it works out, and keep you all updated.  By the way, this was not for this blog, it was for one of my other webpages.
