Mailing Lists. I’m On a Few Odd Ones

So, I get press invites to quite a few media events and I thought for a hot second that I need to start whittling down my contact list because there are a few events which I have no intention of going to. Frankly speaking, I’d have nothing positive to say about this particular event. On the other hand, if you do this writing stuff long enough, you learn that some contacts rep a few projects you don’t care for, but having those contacts will often get you some clients they rep that are more in tune with what you focus on.

Edited a bit to chop out contact info and links, I’ve gotten a few of these in the past week or so:

Reminder Miss America 2020 Press Credential Applications Due

Did I mention I dislike pageants somewhat intensely?

This may have arrived because I covered some fashion stuff in the past, but wow, thanks, but no thanks. I really dislike the whole pageant thing and have for ages. I’m gathering there’s a slight touch of desperation, thus the reaching out to anyone who can cover this, but nope, I’m not interested. Best of luck to the winners and all that, but this sort of thing irks me even if it’s be reworked into something else.

Still, even the “2.0” designation and a new focus on some areas can’t make me believe this pageant (and others like it) deserves to still be a thing in this century. Besides, as a planet, we have bigger fish to fry when all is said and done and even if you see a contestant who may call attention to certain things, my bet is there’s a muzzle out on others, free speech aside. Anyway, I’m sure that event will be some sort of success among those who want it to be a big deal, but me? I’ll be sitting this one out while overthinking about the honeybees dying off or something.
