Kind readers and subscribers, day after day it irks me I’m not spending enough time on my most favorite blog, NanceSense. However, I want to share a little secret with you. I’m a contributing writer for six other blogs! This is a universal problem for writers everywhere I’m sure. I just want to reveal this little nugget and share these other blog sites in case you want to go by and visit them.
Forest Home Media is the integrated marketing company started in 2012 in partnership with long-time advertising exec Dana Tucker. Dana had loved our slice of heaven neighborhood, Forest Home Farms, and moved near us awhile back. It was her brainchild to partner with me, busy in my own world of McNulty Communications. So merge we did and formed this company which has now ushered clients through a HGTV photo shoot, the launching of the nation’s only Southern Living Idea House and just this week, a ground breaking for Operation FINALLY HOME for a decorated veteran in beautiful Kings’ Chapel community in Arrington, TN where I also chronicled a visit from the crew of TLC’s “Say Yes To The Dress” filming a bride in the historic onsite chapel. Check out my most recent blog on PR partnering on Southern Living project & our Facebook for links on editorials coordinated for today’s Tennessean. Busy, fun times for Forest Home Media.
Benchmark Realty is growing by leaps and bounds due to the innovative leadership of its founder/CEO Phillip Cantrell. This blog highlights the progressive commission structure and freedom to do business as you desire as long as it is done so morally, ethically and legal. We love working with this company positioned to be the number one real estate company in 2014. Check it out here.
Castle Homes is one of the top builders in the Nashville market. I began working on special projects for them post 2006 Parade of Homes when they became standout builders in my eye. In 2011, I worked with founder/president Alan Looney helping him launch the Southern Living Showcase Home in Brentwood which earned him Southern Living’s 2012 Custom Home Builder of the Year. Visit their blog to find out their latest work on the nation’s only Southern Living Idea House at Fontanel in Nashville.
Kings’ Chapel is a beautiful gated community in Arrington, TN. Hosts of the 2012 Parade of Homes, the community developers have committed to being land sponsors for the Operation FINALLY HOME build by Carbine & Associates for a decorated war veteran. I’ve been privileged to promote a variety of home tours for some very worthy causes. This one is particularly special to me because a mortgage-free home is being built for an Iraq/Afghanistan veteran. Check out the video of the groundbreaking here.
Students Taking A Right Stand (STARS) is nationally recognized and evidenced-based resource for student assistance, training and professional consultation. STARS assists students, families and schools with prevention, intervention and treatment services addressing bullying, substance abuse, violence, and social and emotional barriers to success. From helping them promote the upcoming Chair-ish The Night With Vince Gill & Friends to editorials in this Sunday’s Tennessean on Bullying Prevention Month, this organization is helping Middle Tennessee youth on a daily basis.
Hughes-Edwards Builders is another top Nashville area business. FHM partner Dana Tucker spearheads their marketing. Recently earning the Tennessean’s Toast of Music City Top Builder honors, Dana has worked to re-launch their website here. FHM has actually just helped relaunch Benchmark, Kings’ Chapel and Hughes-Edwards websites – a daunting and rewarding task.
I’ve listed these in no particular order and love working with all of these companies and my Forest Home Media partner. The one thing they have in common is excellence in what they do on a very principled foundation. Feeling pretty blessed getting to write for these folks but I could use a little more NanceSense in my life so stay tuned!
