It all started when I received an e-mail from Jason at the Manitowoc-Two Rivers Visitor and Convention Bureau asking, “Would you have a room available for a travel writer? Below is his desired information. Let me know. Thanks. Jason” In the past, I have hosted travel writers and was lucky to maybe get mentioned in the last line of the last paragraph.
Brian Clark, a travel writer for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel arrived. At breakfast he had asked me several questions about the history and architecture of the house. Then he was off to see more attractions in the area. One week later, the article was published in the May 29th issue of the Sunday edition featuring the Red Forest.
I was totally surprised to see that the entire article was about the Red Forest.
Interesting things happen when you have an article published. I heard from past guests and innkeepers that I haven’t seen or talked with for a long time. Of course lots of people calling for reservations because they saw the article. (Which is good!) I even had a guy in the military in Afghanistan call for a gift certificate for his parents. He said that his mother sends him interesting articles from the newspaper, and ours was one of them.
In the words of Elvis: “Thank You, Thank You Very Much!”
