Writing and Syndicating a Blog Press Release

Have you ever thought about writing a press release to announce the launch of your new blog?

It’s a great way to “get your blog out there” and helps to officially launch your blog.

Take a look at a few of the latest news releases I found about launching a blog:

Notice there is sort of a common theme here? These press releases are all highlighting the benefits that these new blogs will bring to their readers:

  • Connect with patients
  • Share more tips
  • Helps Employers Maximize Top Asset– Their Employees
  • tracks ‘best practices in digital journalism’
  • a new resource for those looking to improve their odds while dating
  • Moms Who Wine (http://momswhowine.wordpress.com/), is not only quenching the thirst of stressed-out moms, but is also offering a respite from hectic family and work life with humorous stories and words of encouragement.

To help get started on your press release I rounded up a few press release templates for you:

  1. Social Media News Release Template
  2. Instant Press Release
  3. Press Release 101 for Mompreneurs: Free Template Included!
  4. Google Docs Press Release Template

I also complied a list of sites where you can syndicate your press release.

So what would be the headline of your blog’s press release? How will your blog benefit your readers?
