Busted Bad Guys ... How Dumb Can They Be?

[A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Elaine Foxwell.] Part of my job entails searching for news about self-storage for ISS’s "Media Watchdog" department. Some is pretty mundane—zoning changes to allow a facility, charity events and the like. And some are about crime. Not the most auspicious topic, but a nasty reality of life. Well, I came across a few items recently that made me wonder about ...

Things Aren’t Always as They Seem

[A guest blog spot by ISS Editor Drew Whitney.] For those who’ve been following the tales of my debut into chicken-farming, the saga continues. For those who have not, a quick summary: We adopted six fluffy chicks in the spring, like many a good farmer (which I’m not). From lemon-size fluffs, they’ve doubled, tripled, quadrupled (at least) in size, as any good hen should; and now every time I ...

Kudos to the Martians

I'm a shameless eBay junkie, and a hard-core one at that. Whenever I need to purchase anything, I first research it through standard retail outlets to get a sense of prices and features; then I look for it on eBay. Nine times out of 10, I can find it there, and at a much better price than anywhere else. Needless to say, when eBay sales emerged last year as a budding add-on profit center for ...

Reaping Prosperity in the East

[A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Elaine Foxwell.] This is my fifth year working on the Inside Self-Storage U.K./Europe supplement magazine, and I've noticed a change. In the past, many articles originated from the United Kingdom, where the industry is about 16 years old and well-received. This year, though, we take a veritable tour of Europe as more stories come from new areas. The ...

In Different Worlds?

A guest blog spot by Megan Eckert, executive vice president of USstoragesearch.com. Have you ever tried to explain time zones to a 5-year-old? Well, let me tell you, it doesn’t work too well. I recently went back to my hometown and spent some time with friends and family. One of my friends has a young daughter. She's old enough to know I no longer live in the same place as they do and my sun sets ...

Support for Those About to Lose “The Dream”

[A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Elaine Foxwell.] To make a play on the words from Pink Floyd’s “Money,” economists are now saying, “Money goes away.” I’m certainly not reporting anything new when I say the increasing interest pebble dropped in the pond of mortgages is making some pretty disastrous waves. It’s part of my job to cruise the various search engines, crawl along web and delve ...

Velocity Raptor

Sometimes things change so quickly around here, it's like trying to ride a roadrunner ... except much bigger and far more dangerous. I like to call it "the velocity raptor." Hang on tight and pray for your life. This week, we entered production on our November 2007 issue, which is our annual finance edition. Of course, the primary concern expressed by many of our writers regards the changes ...
