Klahr releases e-book on creating content

GUILDERLAND — This week, local writer, small business owner, and Guilderland High School alumna Danielle Klahr, released her new e-book, designed to help other business owners.

Klahr’s book, Connect and Grow: Build Your Business With Content Creation, is available on Amazon for $2.99, but, during a special promotion from May 1 to May 5, can be downloaded to an e-reader for free.

Klahr has been writing and editing content for businesses since 2007, and started her own business, Klahr Writing, in November.

“I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, and the one constant in my jobs was always content creation,” said Klahr, who edits and writes content for local and national businesses.

“Small businesses often struggle with the fairly new concept of content writing,” said Klahr. “I was getting a lot of questions about it.”

She said she taught several courses about it and decided writing an instructional book would be a better way to reach more people.

The book, which she self-published, is the first one in a planned series.

It walks business owners through identifying their target audience, discusses what online platform works best for each audience, identifies valuable topics, and details how to make a plan and stick to it.

“It’s a book for small-business owners looking to improve their online presence,” Klahr said.

“This is all very disturbing,” said Donald Reeb. “It was all being handled as if it was a big secret.”

In a release, the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute argued the area of McKownville has already been infiltrated by non-residential uses, but its authors did not respond to calls or emails.

GUILDERLAND — Forty years ago, Harold “Bud” Kenyon said, he caught a student — “a peeping tom,” he called him — looking into the girls’ locker room. A popular and successful varsity football coach, Kenyon took the boy to the high school principal’s office.

“The first two times did no good,” Kenyon told The Enterprise. The third time, when he found the boy hiding in the bleachers, he recalled, “I told him, ‘Get down’ and he said, ‘Get lost.’ I got him by the nape of the neck and the seat of the pants and took him to the office.”

That incident came back to haunt Kenyon this week as the Guilderland School Board decided, once and for all, not to name the high school football field for Kenyon as originally planned.
