Ardynn Media Group Introduces New International Food And Lifestyle Brand, Simply Ardynn


For Immediate Release

Metro Orlando, FL – August 2, 2018 – Ardynn Media Group and Ardynn Publishing introduces their new National Food and Lifestyle Brand, Simply Ardynn and broadens it’s industry scope beyond the Real Estate and News spheres.  For the past 10 years, Ardynn Media Grouop has focused on the consulting side of business and worked with some of Real Estates biggest brands to strengthen their position within the industry.  They have also been a leader in social media and online branding.  Michael D. Harris-Arzon, President and Publisher of the Ardynn Media Group and Ardynn Publishing, has been an industry leader and influencer that has garnered him the distinction of being named Top 25 Online Branding Experts for 2018 by the WSJ.

As this is the 10th anniversary of the Ardynn Media Group, a decision was made to celebrate such a milestone with the creation of a suite of products that were completely developed in house, instead of recommending other companies products and services, as had been the companies previous business model.  “Having a background in publishing, design and content management gives us a chance to create products that we have complete control over.  This also means that we control the revenue streams and forecast a significant increase to the companies bottom line.”  says Michael Harris-Arzon, President of the Ardynn Media Group.  “Moving into a new consumer sphere, the Food and Lifestyle space, just made sense.  Combining our passion with product development and brand management is the golden ticket”

Simply Ardynn aims to target professionals as they strive to balance their professional and family lives.  We started last year with the creation of The Simplistic Professional, our personal, in-depth advice column that covers everything from business, to being a father and everything in between.  Last week we launched our new online magazine, “Exquisitely Rustic, Interactive Food Experiences For Professionals.”  Besides delivering original recipes and cooking advice from The Simplistic Professional, Simply Ardynn offers Cooking Tips, Kitchen Basics, The Pantry, Simply Kids (where kids teach kids to cook), Celebratory Menus (27 Specially Designed Menus for every holiday and life event), Kitchen Basics, Simply Entertaining and more.

The Simply Ardynn brand is so much more than on online magazine.  In the coming months you will see a suite of cookbooks published via Apple’s iBooks, Amazon and Ardynn Publishing, an Interactive Cooking App that will be available via iTunes, an online store called the House of Ardynn that will sell all of our cookbooks, a custom line of linens for the kitchen and dining room, a line of Table Jewelry, a full range of kitchen tools and utensils, grocery delivery straight to your front door (in every major market) and a host of product lines to meet your dining and entertaining needs.  The House of Ardynn will be a complete online mall to meet every kitchen, dining and entertaining need.

In the spring of 2019 Simply Ardynn launches a complete cooking and entertaining video streaming service via our partnership with YouTube, and a subscription magazine service that will offer specialized content, weekly live, video conferences with audience participation, online chat and more.  We also intend to capitalize on social media branding and ad revenue streams to balance out the bottom line.

Simply Ardynn has been years in the making. Coming from the most humble of beginnings where food meant comfort… through the rise of our professional and social lives, Michael’s passion for cooking and food has long been a huge part of our lives.”  says Walter Arzon, SVP of Sale for Ardynn Media Group.  “But this is so much more than a Food and Lifestyle Brand, it is a family business where every member of the family is involved.  Our three kids are each involved in some way, whether it is hosting the Simply Kids Video series or designing a line of Table Jewelry, it is a family affair.” says Michael Harris-Arzon.

Ardynn Publishing, a wholly owned division of the Ardynn Media Group, is the digital content distribution arm of the real estate industry’s premier social relations firm.  All media requests, general inquiries and press release submissions may be directed to Michael D.

My All American Kids And The Language Of The LAUGH

By Michael Harris-Arzon, Dadologist

As a professional, Dadologist and all around good guy…… I would say that if I have learned anything over the past decade, it is that the most important lesson a father could ever learn is to simply PAY ATTENTION, at all times ( which is easier than you think) to YOUR KIDS!

This is particularly so for the times you aren’t actually engaging the kids throughout the day. Paying strictly, focused attention will eventually help you develop that eye in the back of your head. Or your kids will think so anyway. It all comes down to the sounds they make. In particular the laugh. While we all like to hear our kids laugh, because let’s face it, it means they are happy and hopefully well adjusted kids. But as you pay attention, you will notice that kids have different laughs and you can tell quite a bit from the differences in those laughs.

I know, you think I must be nuts, there isn’t any hidden meaning behind a kid’s laugh. Do a quick run down in your head of the differing styles of laughter in your household. You will realize that each has its own meaning, that isn’t necessarily universal and pertains to your unique children. Below is a simple list of the laughs my three kids make and what each typically means. By being able to distinguish between them has saved me a lot of trips across the house to see what is going on.

  1. The giggle means they are being sneaky and I had better go see what is up.
  2. The hysterical, nonstop laughter usually means they are watching a movie or TV and all is good.
  3. The high pitched, long laugh means they are jumping on the bed and intervention is needed.
  4. The super loud, almost a scream laugh means they are playing by hand and it’s punishment time around our house.
  5. The normal toned, yet slightly subdued laugh means they are playing a game or something innocent.
  6. The nonstop, begging laugh more often than not means that Other Daddy is playing in tickle mode.
  7. The short, snorting laugh probably means that kids just read something amusing.

Now, I imagine there are a few others I haven’t mentioned, but you get the idea. A laugh an speak volumes when it comes to your kids and their behavior. It may take a few months to figure them all out but once you have……your life becomes a lot easier.

Dadologist and Simply Ardynn Offer Great Ideas for Decorating Holiday Gingerbread Houses

By Michael Harris-Arzon, Dadologist

Over the years, we have developed many holiday traditions here in the Arzon household. And even though the kids are getting older (this will be the last year I think for Santa) I want them to have specific memories when they are older with families of their own. In the beginning many people thought we were nuts for going through so much effort for a specific idea or event. We have actually put a lot of thought and planning into creating the settings for different aspects of the holiday season.

Whether it is setting the table at Thanksgiving and cooking dinner together, the kids decorating the outside of the house with Danny while I make cookies and Mexican Hot Chocolate as a reward for their help and hard work or my building a gingerbread house with the kids to start the decorating of the interior rooms of the house. Each one is done the same way, just different look each year and is usually on the same day each year as our way of ensuring our family traditions will be remembered and hopefully carried on.

Normally this proud father and Dadologist has no trouble coming up with unique, creative ideas. But,with things being so hectic this year as I work long hours, plan my schedule to ensure all of our family traditions are done, take Anthony to his multitude of doctors appointments (the doctors think he may have another tumor) I decided to just peruse some photos online for ideas. I normally only do this when totally blocked, but as a time saving measure I decided it couldn’t hurt to see what others have done in years past and incorporate some of those ideas this year.

Here are some great examples of Gingerbread Houses that can, and should, be done with the kids to you build your own Holiday Traditions.
