Press Release Weekl

Number 01 (04/12/2011)

Creating a publication made out of information that I regulary get from PR managers is something quite fascinating to me. Since I was child I've always found a way to grab and use information, such as blogs and websites, social networking or even personal critiques. Last month I started a project that involved interviewing hundreds of bands and asking them for online interview with no professional purposes whatsoever. This publication comes the same way. It's part of the evolution steps I've been taking. It's part of a learning process that I am willing to take, just so in the future I can show and tell that I had the iniciative to actually do something. And just for that, I don't expect this publication to reach hundreds of people, but whoever reads this, knows that effort has been put into it. This week we start small and I don't even know if there's a next week. If there is, I'll make another one of these. If not, then I'll make one when there's enough. Ricardo Raymond Du Toit
