Your life as a press release

Last month I posted about my fulfilling internship with the Philadelphia Business Journal from the spring. Then I offered advice about attracting attention to your press releases.

I got some great clips there and learned more about newsroom dynamics, but I also got a taste of nine to five life. Business reporting didn’t get me out of the office much, and most often I was pouring over hundreds of those press releases and choosing one each week to profile.

I remember thinking then and came about it again. Is my life worth profiling, chosen by some idiot 22-year-old intern?

I’m scared of the answer.
