With Washington Post paywall, links on Twitter don’t count against the meter

June 7, 2013


The Washington Post this week announced details on their new paywall, a “metered subscription model,” according to a letter from Post publisher Katharine Weymouth, that will be phased in beginning June 12. Through this new system, anyone accessing The Post’s website “will initially be able to view 20 pieces of content per month before being […]

#hiremikeholden on

March 22, 2012


The #hiremikeholden hashtag made it onto, thanks to my fantastic wife! The Post wished good luck on Twitter too, after I tweeted the image below.  Thanks to them and everyone else who has been spreading the word about my job search and solo PR and marketing work. I appreciate it!

It’s not like you threw a D-Cell, Steinberg, right?

May 30, 2011


Washington Post writer Dan Steinberg says that seeing all the Phillies fans invade Nats park today made him “want to be a Nats fan.” He then notes he’s “supposed to be neutral and all that.” Sure, it’s generally the rule that a journalist should not show they are rooting for one team or another in […]

Will Jiffy Lube Live’s new tailgate policy make the roads safer or just shift the problems?

May 17, 2011


Thinking out loud here…the comments are open if you want to weigh in… Northern Virginia concert venue Jiffy Lube Live (formerly Nissan Pavilion) has banned tailgating in their parking lot, in “an effort to stem drunken driving, which, in the past two years, has taken four lives after concerts,” according to an article by Chris […]

Looking beyond a playoff W-L record

May 12, 2011


Mike Wise began his May 6 Washington Post column by referencing three legendary hockey coaches and their playoff winning percentages early in their careers, as he defended Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau following the team’s second round exit from the playoffs. Wise wrote: “Bruce Boudreau’s below-average playoff record of 17-20 (.459) keeps being used as […]

Flexible work environments

May 9, 2011


I was happy to see the subject of flexible work environments getting front page exposure in Sunday’s Washington Post. I’m glad to work at a company that is already on the cutting edge with this concept—all WAKA employees are virtual workers; there is no office.  I’d like to see even more of this in business […]

William Steinway was a 19th century blogger

December 17, 2010


Check out the article in today’s Washington Post by Jacqueline Trescott on William Steinway, the son of the founder of Steinway pianos. It sounds as if he was a 19th century blogger. The article is about a new exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History that displays parts of Steinway’s diary. As Trescott […]

The Washington Post and “writing in the Internet age”

November 12, 2010


Check out page D2 of today’s Washington Post and Dave Sheinin’s story “Putting a number on a theory” for a nice example of how media in print form can reference/recognize a blogger not on their staff. The article even has a sub-head of “Blogger argues that assertion regarding Dunn, Zimmerman is a bit off”. The […]

D.C.’s new West End Cinema “a compliment, not a competitor”

October 22, 2010


Continuing what is unexpectedly a series on competition and collaboration… There must be something in the water in D.C. or Jamie Shor, co-founder of the new West End Cinema, has been hanging out with Steve Buttry, Tom Meyer and Seth Hurwitz. In an article in today’s Washington Post, “D.C.’s West End Cinema to provide outlet […]

Healthy views on competition and collaboration

October 13, 2010


Steve Buttry, Director of Community Engagement for TBD, offers up some great “thoughts on competition and collaboration” in a recent post about Patch, the AOL series of local news sites that some bloggers are worried will cost them web traffic. Buttry writes: “I don’t know that Patch being in your community is necessarily a bad […]

The Mike Wise Issue in One Tweet

September 1, 2010


Regarding Washington Post columnist Mike Wise and his experiment on Twitter—where he sent out tweets containing made-up information to basically test a theory and see if people would pass it on without verifying its accuracy—this tweet by John Ourand with Sports Business Journal says it all: “@MikeWiseguy You aen’t right about “nobody checking facts” on […]

Washington Post: I’d Like a Saturday/Sunday Subscription Option

November 23, 2009


If I have any time to sit down and read the print edition of the newspaper, it’s on the weekend. Those are the days I’m in less of a hurry to get out the door and I can sometimes sit there with my coffee and enjoy the paper, which for me is The Washington Post. […]

Nats ad could have been even better with direction to social media & web

November 1, 2009


The Nats had a nice full page ad in today’s Washington Post. It thanks the fans, runs down all the highlights of the 2009 season and ends by saying “We’ll see you in 2010!” I think this ad was a great idea. Baseball fans are following the World Series right now. Sports fans in D.C. […]


October 7, 2009


John Feinstein of The Washington Post wrote Tuesday that “The Capitals made a mistake Saturday night” by choosing to only unfurl last season’s Southeast Division championship banner from the rafters before the home opener, rather than “slowly raising” it. I don’t think it matters too much which way the banner was unveiled but, in this […]

What’s in a Headline?

August 1, 2009


Something in today’s Washington Post has me puzzled. The Post reprinted a Baltimore Sun article about last night’s Orioles game, a game Baltimore lost 6-5 to the Boston Red Sox. The headline in The Post reads, “Guthrie, Orioles Blasted by Boston.” In the game, the Red Sox scored six runs and hit three home runs […]
