Murphy's Law

Speaking and Ranking…

I’m in full time parenting mode this weekend, so with my heir in bed, I’ve been doing a lot of blog catch up and it’s very very busy out there.

I’m looking forward to next week and the third and last planned event in the University of Sunderland’s “New PR” series. It’s taking place in London on May 12th and it’ll be great to catch up with Elizabeth, Stuart, Neville, Philip, Chris and of course Nicky and her team. You can find out more about the event here.

Another thing that’s been on my mind: the PubSub PR list.

It’s a little confusing, I don’t understand how the ranking works. [Now given that there is as much ego as altruism involved in this blogging lark, I imagine a lot of people take a sneaky peak from time to time]. Sometimes when I haven’t blogged in ages I move up, sometimes when I do blog I move down. I always knew I moved in mysterious ways but with the PubSub list….. I thought it would be interesting to look at the latest stories from the PubSub Top Ten on May 5th:

#1 – Kami Huyse: Discussion on PubSub’s Rankings!

#2 – Alan Weinkrantz: Discussion on PubSub Rankings!

#3 – San Antonio Byline Blog: The Rewards and Risks of Blogging [Collaborative Blog: Gregory Frieden, Christie Goodman, Kami Watson Huyse, Paige Ramsey-Palmer]

#4 – Steve Rubel: Blogger Spared from Lawsuit

#5 – Brian Oberkirch: BrainJams New Orleans

#6 – Richard Bailey: The rise of PR and Sponsorship

#7 – Andy Lark: Bloggers not rushing to blogs

#8 – New PR Wiki

#9 – Eric Eggertson: Damn Spammer Only Has to Pay $4 Million

#10 – B.L. Ochman: Benny Goes To Broadway and Beyond [Don’t ask :)]

So what does this detailed scientific analysis tell us? Absolutely nothing, but I’m sure we’ll keep peaking at it.
