Some PR posts and a mini rant…

February 15th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Public Relations

So I’ve been trawling through my PR RSS feeds and I’m including some interesting posts below, but before I get to that indulge me for a moment…  Mini rant: What was interesting in reviewing these posts is the fact that the ‘PR 2.0’ moniker continues to live.  What is PR 2.0?  Should my business card […]

PR Blogging old timers

March 25th, 2010 · No Comments · Public Relations

Earlier today I learned from Jeremy Pepper via Twitter that Phil Gomes has temporarily suspended his blogging activities. Phil was one of the first PR folks (along with Jim Horton and Richard Bailey) that I came across when I started blogging many years ago. In a trip of pure nostalgia I searched my old blog […]

A post containing some interesting PR-related content that I’ve stumbled upon… Do you have your PR skills? Dave Fleets offers 14 key skills for “new” PR professionals (via Neville Hobson) and thankfully he does point out that just because there are some new skills required doesn’t mean we should neglect the traditional skills.  I’m a […]

Social media and PR?

February 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments · Social Media

Browsing through many neglected RSS feeds today, there wasn’t a lot that tickled my fancy (so to speak). Once again, I did see a couple of posts that probably should have been held in a “drafts” folder overnight – and then deleted.  I don’t wish to pour salt on the wounds, but there are a […]

It’s a question of trust

December 10th, 2008 · 3 Comments · Public Relations, Social Media

Forrester’s Josh Bernoff has published some interesting findings from a survey they undertook in the second quarter (April-June) of 2008 to find out the most trustworthy information sources. Interesting, good old e-mail comes in a #1, traditional media is holding up nicely and the poor blog (particularly the company flavour) limps in last. See the […]

Interesting PR-related stuff

November 11th, 2008 · 5 Comments · Social Media

There has been a drought of interesting things in my RSS feeds recently, the majority of content seems to tirelessly (and boringly) focus on “blah blah is dying or dead” or “blah blah is going to change the world”.

Devices of mass disruption… what is PR?.. Blog rankings… Web 2.0 fatigue…

July 23rd, 2008 · 1 Comment · Public Relations

Device of mass disruption or eh is it a phone? Guys seriously I have stayed silent on this subject long enough.  It’s a phone. It’s not a six inch device of mass disruption. Apple has done a good design job but I am bored to my back teeth with the ridiculous posts and tweets. I […]

6 years blogging… no parole yet..

March 25th, 2008 · 4 Comments · Social Media

The last couple of years may have been a struggle, but I am delighted that today my meagre blogging efforts on the world of Public Relations have been polluting the Internet for exactly 6 years. [To put that in context statistically, if you were a "wife" convicted of killing your spouse in a large urban […]
