Bravo for all the terrific work you've done.

Media Kitty has been a great resource for us at FamilyTravel.com. I've been able to connect with some great PR professionals who were able to provide the information I needed in a timely and most helpful fashion. Also, I've learned of some great trips and off the beaten path destinations that we were happy to include on our site or in my on-air travel features. Many thanks!

Media Kitty is one e-stop I make every single day - I've found some great contacts (and contracts!) on Media Kitty's pages!
Dee Van Dyk, freelance journalist

As a freelance writer I click on your site perhaps once every ten days as I have done for the past three years. My discretionary use is in addition to a review of the newsletters you send frequently. I think it is excellent site and the best professional media site out there. Even your comments are continually upbeat which gives me a positive outlook when freelance is slow! Keep up the good work!

Whether I'm looking for spa information, soft adventure ideas, updates for the meetings and incentive market I always seem to find something I can use courtesy of Media Kitty's industry members. In addition to it being a effective and efficient resource tool, it also helps fill my ideas file with fresh story suggestions.

A posting that I read on your website led to a trip to Belize in the summer and so far I have sold four stories from that trip alone. Thank you, Media Kitty, for providing such a great service for travel writers around the world.

I just took my first "Media Kitty press trip" this past week and it was great. Thanks for making it so easy for travel writers and PR agencies to come together and form a community.

I would like to thank you for the outstanding services you provide through Media Kitty. Using Media Kitty has been by far the most beneficial experience I've had with any Internet-based resource for travel journalists.
Lucas Aykroyd, freelance journalist - Vancouver British Columbia

I have affiliated with Media Kitty early in its existence and I am so happy that I did. They are on top of what's happening in the travel world that I need to know:

  • media and press trip information;
  • referrals;
  • destination information;
  • associate members' news and announcements;
  • the opportunity to post my own special needs, and so much more

Information is presented in a concise, accurate manner. Media Kitty is ALWAYS very responsive and on top of what they do -- what every busy travelwriter needs. Thanks, Media Kitty.

Naomi K. Shapiro, Travel/Outdoor/Fishing writer

Since subscribing to Media Kitty I've given up the need to cat around looking for good travel industry info. It's all here in one tidy, trippy package, warm and fuzzy. [It] roars with all the relevant intelligence needed, and is a fun frolic to read as well. Can't keep my paws off it.

Media Kitty is the cat's meow for a dogged journalist looking for great story ideas. I average at least two leads a week from it and have made great contacts with some of the best PR names in the business.

More than a year ago, we posted a news release on Media Kitty, received a solid response and got some good national press. Because news releases are archived on your site, they continue to provide a great benefit. Last month, a freelance writer for the Boston Globe travel section contacted me about the release she had seen on your site. Last Sunday, a story about our contest ran in the Arrivals & Departures section of the Globe. The Sunday Globe has a circulation of more than 700,000. That's a fantastic media hit considering the news was more than a year old! Thanks for a great service!

Your site is really just getting better and better. A great idea and a great job, so thank you for that.

My Media Kitty posting for PR help with a story on destination weddings brought me several good sources. These publicists will be duly rewarded with the residual publicity and I hope they receive praise from their clients as well. Thanks for the service.

Media Kitty has been a great addition to our travel practice as it provides numerous opportunities at an incredible value.
Heather Haus MacCuspie

In the world of PR there are two types: the ones who get it, and the ones who don't and never will. As a full-time freelancer I run from the latter. Media Kitty allows me to choose who I want to talk to in an efficient, timely manner. Not only that, the staff at Media Kitty completely understands the needs of a journalist and goes out of its way to help.
Bill Kerig, freelance journalist - Salt Lake City Utah

Excellent! We’ve seen a lot of media emails in response to our postings on Media Kitty. I would recommend it.

We’ve seen several journalists visit Amelia Island, Florida because of a posting on mediakitty.com. These writers were top-shelf pros and the placements that resulted were in respected, mainstream publications.

Media Kitty is unique in that you are aware of the public relations and marketing side of travel promotion and understand travel writers' needs as well.
L. Peat O'Neil, author of Travel Writing - See the World-Sell the Story - Washington, DC

It's an excellent service for writers ... PR types will use it heavily if they'll just try it and see how many hits they get in return. It's a great idea. I hope all of us can help you keep it going.
