PR blogging–what are you reading?

July 2nd, 2013 · 3 Comments · Public Relations, Social Media

I’ve always been a big advocate of the productivity benefits of RSS.  It’s a simple technology – though not always understood – that is an incredible aid for anyone who needs to keep on top of vast swathes of content whether it’s breaking news, updates or online opinions. 

The death of Google Reader has many of us RSS users trolling around for an alternative way to keep our RSS feed consumption synchronized across our various devices.  (Personally I’m still in mourning for the untimely demise of FeedDemon by far my favorite RSS reader.  The good news is that you can still use it – and I will – but the lack of support for updating feeds across my PCs, phone, tablet etc. reduces it’s utility somewhat.)

So in preparation for this change I’ve been reviewing my RSS feeds and specifically the PR blogs I’ve been tracking and reading over the past 10 years.  I’ve built up a list of about 120 PR-related blogs. 

It’s interesting to note how many of those PR blogs, like this one, are dormant or dead. (For the record this one isn’t dead but definitely could be mistaken for dormant).

So that begs the question, what am I missing? What active and useful PR blogs are you reading? What should I by adding to the list?

    If you check out my blog (yes, it’s dormant, I know), you’ll find my (really) old-school blogroll in the right hand margin.

    Hi Tom!

    You can check our blog too – it’s just humble beginnings, I know. I want to focus on providing new angle on still-existing problems in our industry such as PR spamming, churnalism and so on.
    Evoque is not only a blog though. My main product is networking platform for PR & Media, where my mission is to tame PR spamming and help PR to connect and target journalists and bloggers more accurately.

    I would be really grateful if I could have a quick chat with you about where PR industry should head on. Could I email you?
