Press Release Blogging

We can thank Nancy from Vorticom, Inc. for making my job this morning very easy. Here’s her press release on a Green Roof in Illinois.

Kankakee, Illinois-based Riverside Medical Center,, named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals four years in a row by Thomson Reuters, unveils the installation of a large eco-friendly Vegetative Living Green Roof System in celebration of the hospital’s commitment to environmental stewardship and the launch of the hospital’s East Tower. The planting system and vegetation on the living roofs act as insulation and will reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%. The installation of this green roof at Riverside Medical Center provides patients, visitors and employees with an ever changing landscape canvas atop a rooftop space that was previously barren.

Here’s the photo.

Well, it looks good, but I should say one thing to Nancy – if you want bloggers to post your press releases and photos, and want to make it so easy for us that we don’t have to do anything at all, then you should pre-shrink the images to fit on the blog. I had to actually open up photoshop and resize the image all by myself! And then I had to write this here whole paragraph about it too! This kind of snark doesn’t write itself you know.
