Cincinnati: A Tale of Two Brands

February 1st, 2011 — 1:23pm

The following guest blog was written by Jennifer Kessler of Urban Cincy.

“For a city that has so much to be proud of, Cincinnati and her citizens seem to have something of a self-image problem. For all the positives going on around town, many feel it’s easier to focus on the negative. This poses a problem as the city and the people in it work to establish a seat at the table among other world-class cities. Despite the Queen City’s history, heritage, architecture, development, and sense of place, the question remains: How does the rest of the world see us?

Online Dating/Stalking – What’s up with Gotham?

January 18th, 2011 — 12:14pm

Did you know EHarmony is responsible for 2% of all US marriages? Did you also know that Plenty of Fish has mustered up 100,000 marriages from its site? It’s okay if you didn’t, it probably means you can find love “the old-fashioned way.” In other words, you can start a conversation without a keyboard.

NewsBeast: The Merger

November 12th, 2010 — 4:05pm

It seems print publications are finally learning how to evolve: go digital or go home. Covet Garden found a way out of the print Dark Ages. And now, a new joint venture with The Daily Beast seems to be Newsweek’s method for adapting. Whether the publication will thrive or die is yet to be seen, but I can’t help but believe this is a step in the right direction.

It’s almost comical how companies who have spent countless hours trying to discredit the legitimacy of online publications (foremost blogs) are now embracing it. They are realizing this is where the public gets their news. Credibility of blogs is always increasing. Even the news corporations are getting their news from Twitter. “Head in the sand” must have run its course for traditional publications, and it’s about time.

A Farewell to Kanye West

October 20th, 2010 — 2:33pm


It’s not us, it’s only you. That’s the problem; you love the limelight too much. With your diamond and gold teeth (we would have accepted a grill, but legitimate teeth made of gem and metal isn’t cool) it affirms that you’ve taken it too far. Holding the ultimate conversation piece, it seems like you’d turn your vocal chords platinum if someone would talk about you.
