I eagerly look forward to the Washington Business Journal every Friday. I have been a long time subscriber of the Washington Business Journal and the print version is my way of disconnecting and reconnecting. I usually read the print version over the weekend, starting with the Back Page first, top read Jennifer Nycz-Conner column and see if I know anyone featured in the photo section of the BackPage.
I love the fact that the Washington Business Journal has large photos of the reporters and has divided the paper by topic. I follow Bill Flook through out the week as @TechFlashWBJhttps://twitter.com/techflashwbj and also the newsletter that I get every day, and it is always nice to see if I missed anything in Bill Flook's print column.
Since I joined Bozzuto, I am paying a lot of attention to the coverage of Real Estate by Michael Neibauer and Daniel J. Sernovitz who seem to know everything real estate and your life in the Washington DC Metro.
Rebecca Cooper covers my favorite topic - Restaurants, retail, hospitality and the arts and even though I have not met her in person, I feel like i know her through her tweets and the newsletter. IF you want to know what's opening in the Washington DC area, follow her.
Tina Reed is new covering health care and I have had the privilege of meeting her at a Washington Business Journal event for Minority Business Leader's Award.
Between Dough Fruehling and Rob Terry, they manage to make the viewpoint column very personal and interesting.
I met Alex Orfinger the publisher of the Washington Business Journal at a DC Chamber of Commerce event, many years ago and he does a very good job being social, human and upto date.
I love the fact that most of the reporters at the Washington Business Journal do a great job with social media. It is not a big deal to subscribe to the print edition of the Washington Business Journal and you can keep in touch with the pulse of business in the Washington Dc area and get leads from news about companies in the Washington DC area.
A subscription to the Washington Business Journal is a well worth the investment of $59 for a year. Your monthly coffee is probably more expensive.
The other way to keep in touch is to go to the events organized by the Washington Business Journal organized by my friend Whitney Suntum.
