HINTS: "Often writers will tend to focus on one bowling center, but our audience is interested in trends. And one center does not make for a great trend. Also, bowling centers in general are older facilities, so a story on how a center is celebrating a 40th anniversary or has been family owned for 20+ years is really not uncommon for this industry. Thus, we don't run those types of articles."
