South Florida Biodiesel & Texas Cattle

Chuck Zimmerman

What do they have in common?

I’m at the NCBA/CBB convention in San Antonio and just sent a Talking News Release out for the National Biodiesel Board simultaneously with their live press conference going on at their annual convention in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. It’s amazing what you can do with computers and the internet today!

So, here I am covering the convention in Texas as a way to demonstrate how you can use a blog for your company and/or client. At the same time we have clients like the National Biodiesel Board who are having us do release projects for them. We’re about as mobile as you can get.

I think we’re also going to create a new blog just focusing on farm news and directed to farmers. What do you think of that? It just makes sense to have a couple of reporters who are running their own public relations company create a source for news and information which we’re helping produce. Of course it has to be transparent and we’ll be up front about what they will read.

Beef Demand Is Sizzling!

Chuck Zimmerman

The first interview is with Cattlemen’s Beef Board CEO Monte Reese. He’s the better looking one talking into the mic. Beef demand increased more last year than any year recently and Monte talks about what that means in our next podcast available here: ZimmBlog Podcast.

All the usual press conferences are going on and the trade show’s about to start so while you listen, I’ll go wander around.

The convention is underway. Posted by Hello

Just Got In To San Antonio

Chuck Zimmerman

Hello from San Antonio. 2nd hotel. The first one didn’t have working high speed access. Can’t have that. I promise not to make you look at pictures of me. I’m just happy to be in my room and ready to go. It’s off to the convention center next and see what’s going on. I’ll start out in the media room and post more later. Let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see me cover while I’m here. Post a comment or email me.Posted by Hello

Off To San Antonio

Chuck Zimmerman

I just couldn’t leave a wimpy little post from a cell phone on my blog while I’m travelling. I just sent that last post to show you that if you’re really desparate, you can even use a pretty standard Sprint phone to post a message on your blog.

I’ll be getting in to the Cattle Industry Convention tomorrow afternoon and will begin posting information as soon as I find it.
