2012 PR33 – Top PR / Communications Blogs

January 16, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Before unveiling the 2012 PR33 list, here are a couple of semi-personalized notes.

- To the bloggers listed below – many thanks for the quality content over the last 12 months. Also, please don’t feel like you need to send me a public thank you. That’s not why this list was created.

- To visitors looking for top PR / communications blogs – this list reflects countless hours of labor, but it is far from an all-inclusive list. Please feel free to comment below and add your favorites.

- To the bloggers who were on last year’s PR33 but not on this year’s list. It’s not you. It’s me. See companion post for more details.

To those of you about to comment that you hate these ‘best of’ lists – why are you still here?

Finally, wanting this list to be about the folks listed below, any and all further commentary, information, disclaimers and even some bonus selections, can be found on a separate post – Now the Rest of the Story – PR33.

In no particular order – the 2012 PR33.

InkHouse Inklings Twitter: @bamonaghan or @InkHousePR  Leading the 2012 class is Inklings, which is a fantastic example of agency blogging done right. Want to know what makes a PR33 blog, look no further. The blog includes a steady flow and perfect balance of industry specific subjects with entertaining human interest type of posts. Beth Monaghan’s writing is what first won over this blogger (Exhibit A – Breaking News: When to Speak Up and When to Shut Up), but she is also joined by a number of talented bloggers. InkHouse and its blog continues to bring the goods week after week.

The Steveology Blog by Steve Farnsworth  
Twitter: @Steveology 
A returning PR33 blog and a favorite of this blogger, Steve has evolved as well as anyone in social media, from humble beginnings as TheRealPRMan, to his Digital Marketing Mercenary blog, Steve never fails to entertain and educate. Currently, he is creating video content as well and as fast as anyone. He always leads the list of must follow on Twitter. New disclaimer, I finally had the opportunity to meet Steve in person and he is just as smart and funny in real life as he appears online.

PR in Pink by Krista Paplau  
Twitter: @PR_in_Pink
Not sure how to best characterize this next comment, but no one on this list makes this reader smile as much as Krista. Practically every new post, comment and tweet brings either a warm smile or a full-on belly laugh, often complete with snort. It’s not all about humor, her posts are smart and insightful like when she is declaring independence from PR stereotypes. Her sense of humor and her writing style are a joy. She also gets extra credit for staying involved in PR blogging even though she is no longer part of the industry’s daily grind. This gives her a unique and valuable perspective. Enough said.

Words Done Write by Amber Avines
Twitter: @wordsdonewrite
Thank you to PR in Pink (listed above) for the nomination and for bringing this gem to this bloggers attention. This blog is proof positive that spending so much time creating this type of list is worth the effort. There are so many reasons to read this blog and here are just a few favorites: Amber’s 9 Tweets You Need to Stop Sending and 12 Reasons I won’t Follow You Back on Twitter,  but to be honest she won over this reader with the line, “…you know who won’t be stopping by my blog today? The Amish.” Also, a must follow on Twitter.

Ishmael’s Corner by Lou Hoffman 
Twitter: @LouHoffman
Another PR33 alum that never disappoints, Lou Hoffman is the PR33’s official storyteller. Seriously, he never fails to surprise with his unique and uncanny ability to pull out information that others (myself always included) easily miss. This reader for one finds his posts to be quite amusing no matter what Google analytics says. Subtle reference material for that last line can be found here.

Waxing Unlyrical 
Twitter: @shonali
While its place on this list is based on the entirety of the work, here is just one example of the posts that really won over this reader On Social Media Bullies. It is Shonali Burke that keeps this blogger reading and coming back, but she has built a full stable of contributing bloggers. Shonali also presents a great example of how to write an proper ‘about’ section.

One Guy’s Journey by Jason Mollica  
Twitter: @JasMollica
Jason has evolved this past year as much as any blogger on this list. He has always been on this bloggers short list of must reads, but in the past few months as Jason’s career has been transforming, he has been incredibly honest, forthcoming and sincere about his journey, making his blogging even more thought-provoking. Readers are treated to a glimpse of Jason’s very human side and the recent inclusion of video posts only adds to the experience. It doesn’t hurt that he seems to be a really good guy.

The PR Coach by Jeff Domansky
Twitter: @ThePRCoach
Jeff Domansky’s site is an all-inclusive one-stop destination for all things PR. While selection on this list is based on his blogging, it must be noted that the PR Coach site contains so much more than ‘just’ great blog post like Ten PR Truths. It is a true destination site for PR professionals. In fact, the Coach also comes through for those looking for a longer list of PR blogs. While, no records were kept, it is a safe guess that many of the blogs on this list were found by reading The Coach.

From A to Z GroupPR by Jules Zunich  
Twitter: @JulesZunichPR
Regular readers of this blog and companion Twitter stream will be very familiar with Jules. Her wit and sense of humor is what first got this reader’s attention, but don’t overlook her knowledge of all things PR. She knows her stuff and always finds way to highlight the human and personal element of our industry. Jules’ posts are all different and unique, but here is a decent sample of what kind of quality posts are being missed by non-followers - Agency or In-House? The Marianne & Ginger of PR.

Soulati – Tude by Jayme Soulati  
Twitter: @Soulati
Lots of good stuff at Jayme Soulati’s blog, but what really brings readers back is how well she weaves in personal experiences and personality into her posts. Sometimes simply reading her Twitter stream about a certain post or the conversations taking place in the comment section of her post, can be more educational and entertaining than some people’s entire blog. She does a better job than most of soliciting reader input. Anyone that wants to learn how to engage readers needs to look no further than Jayme’s blog.

Doug Haslam 
Twitter: @DougH
As well as anybody, Doug provides a balance of smart, actionable advice, personal insights and interesting and entertaining posts. His is one of only a small handful of communications blogs that I’d point young professionals to as a role model / case study example of blogging done right. One of this reader’s favorite post from the past year has to be Personal Brands at Companies Solved; What Everyone Needs is a BJ. He is so inspirational that this reader may sign up for next year’s Pan Mass Challenge.

Public Relations and Managing Reputation by Craig Pearce
Twitter: @commaim
Craig keeps a solid flow of content and has been kind enough to share his rolodex with the world by featuring a number of guest bloggers. He is also on short list of folks I need to have a beer with – next time I find myself on the other side of the globe. While the industry is currently talking about defining PR, Craig was ahead of the curve writing about a full rebranding for PR months ago - The future of public relations: a rebrand? He also keeps his own list of bloggers that is worth checking out.

Convince and Convert by Jay Baer
Twitter: @jaybaer
Like a number of other picks on this list, Jay Bear falls under the ‘uh no duh’ category. Making these selections can be viewed as saying I like coffee, beer, and long walks on the beach – in other words who doesn’t. But sometimes just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Honestly, while this list gravitates more to the people that are really worth reading as opposed to those that are inexplicably popular, sometimes popular people are right too. In other words, Jay is probably already on most people’s radar, but that is because he deserves to be.

Heidi Cohen
Twitter: @heidicohen
Not sure if she’ll appreciate the distinction or not, but she is this lists’ unofficial favorite numbers-based blogger (or PR33 UFNBB for short). Looking for 30 definitions of social media? Need 31 different definitions of public relations? Researching 56 must have mobile marketing facts? No problem. New to blogging, well check out 125 of Heidi’s blog topic suggestions. Make no mistake, it is not Heidi’s counting ability that landed her on this list. Her post are not all lists and tips, in fact her blog is one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking on this list.

A Shel of My Former Self by Shel Holtz
Twitter: @shelholtz
Shel’s inclusion on this list probably should come with an apology – to Shel and readers of this blog –  for not including Shel on last year’s list. While always a favorite of this reader, his inclusion on this year’s list is a reflection of the changing landscape of communications. My take – maybe incorrect – is that Shel is more about the business and technology side of the industry. While he probably hasn’t changed in the past year, his inclusion on this year’s list is a reflection of the growing importance of those issues to a flack like me and hopefully also a reflection of my growth as a reader. (My version of a humble brag).

CommunicationsConversations by Arik Hanson 
Twitter: @arikhanson
This year’s comment regarding Arik’s blog is very similar to last year. Simply put, he is one of those people that never fails to make the rest of us feel like slackers. Seemingly tireless, he is one of the best bloggers, the founder of Help a PR Pro Out (HAPPO), contributor to Ragan.com, PR Daily, PR Breakfast Club and listed on any number of best of lists. His is a top-shelf blog without any doubt.

Spin Sucks by Gini Dietrich
Twitter: @ginidietrich
Although I’m still not convinced that she doesn’t have a large group of content creators locked in her basement, this so called ‘Gini’ person writes (blogs and tweets) and records videos faster than her audience can read. It is to the point that I have a reoccurring calendar entry once a week with an hour set aside to catch up on all things Gini. Well, not really, as that would be creepy, but the point is valid – she is absurdly smart, super entertaining and ridiculously prolific.

PR Communications by John Cass  
Twitter: @johncass
John is yet another perfect example of why this blogger is willing to spend countless hours creating this list of top bloggers. Not sure how his blog didn’t get recognized here earlier, but we’re not here to talk about the past, so let’s just celebrate that John’s blog has risen to become a top favorite. The more time spent reading John’s blog and his Twitter steam the more often two questions come up – one, why did it take so long to discover this quality blog, and how is it he and I have never met. In looking at his blog, LinkedIn profile and Twitter stream, we appear to know many of the same (Boston area) people, yet I’ve never had the pleasure. Maybe in 2012.

The Future Buzz by Adam Singer
Twitter: @AdamSinger
Another PR33 repeat-offender, Adam is a long-time favorite of this blogger. It sounds cheesy to say, but everything he writes is good, so luckily he was kind enough to provide a one click stop for his best of 2011. Note that he is being very modest limiting this list. There were lots of other must reads published by Adam in 2011. Don’t take this blogger’s word for it, poke around a bit.

The Human Side of Media and the Social Side of Marketing by Danny Brown
Twitter: @DannyBrown  
More than anyone on this list, Danny Brown makes me laugh and think. A fantastic wit and perspective. In addition to his Human Side blog, he is also the founder of For Bloggers By Bloggers and can be found at Punk Views on Social Media, where this self-proclaimed former Punk Rocker creates a venue for authors “who aren’t afraid to take chances with their posts and shake things up a little in the social media blogosphere.” In short, Danny can be found everywhere…well, except maybe on Klout.

PR Conversations 
Twitter: @prconversations
With content driven by Judy Gombita and Heather Yaxley, who can also be found at (Note: special bonus blog recommendation) Green Banana. With an interesting history, PR Conversations was originally launched in 2007 by Toni Muzi Falconi, who created it as an international, collaborative PR-blog concept. Apparently it was successful. Over the years it has had more than 370 posts from a variety of contributors. In other words, it has a long history of providing quality content from a wide variety of industry voices.

Exploring the Intersection of Communications, Marketing and Social Media by Dave Fleet  
Twitter: @davefleet
Another long-time favorite of this blogger. Dave Fleet was one of the first bloggers I started reading just prior to starting my own blog. He made it look so easy with thoughtful and insightful blogs on a regular basis. I quickly learned that it isn’t as easy as he makes it look, but I don’t hold this against him. Simply put, he is one of the best. Also, he just posted a list of 12 bloggers to follow list that is worth checking out.

Business Grow by Mark Schaefer
Twitter: @markwschaefer
One of the reasons many of us read industry blogs is to learn and grow (pun intended) and Mark, probably more than anyone on this list, made me question many of my personal beliefs about industry blogs. Generally speaking, blogs with lots of guest bloggers, a large number of different voices, a post-a-day level of activity, a significant amount of video content, and clearly tied to an individual business, are not favorites of this blogger. But that being said, what Mark has built here proves to be the exception to all of these rules. With over 270 posts in 2011 including guest contributions from over 40 contributors and an ever-increasing number of video posts, this blog is one of the best. Good thing he never asked my advice.

Beyond the Hype
Twitter: @LPP_PR
Another returning favorite, LPP’s blog is agency blogging at its best. A good crew of regular authors hitting a variety of topic from media, public relations, to coverage of the local (Boston) sports teams, this blog has caused this blogger to rethink his earlier prejudices of group / agency blogs. As noted above, I’ve often said, that I’m not a fan of blogs with multiple authors, yet with quality contributions from top shelf bloggers Don Jennings, Ted Weismann , Bill McLaughlin, Lois Paul and others, Beyond the Hype is a must read every day. Disclaimer, I worked at LPP many many years ago and still like these people. There, I said it.

Content Institute by Joe Pulizzi
On Twitter: @Junta42
Joe Pulizzi’s inclusion on the list provides me with yet another humble brag’ish type opportunity, as his inclusion on this year’s list marks my growth as a reader. His focus on content marketing is much more in line with my current thinking than it was last year. Of course he outdoes this list with his well-regarded top 42 content marketing blogs.

Flack’s Revenge by Bob Geller  
Twitter: @rgeller
It’s difficult to interact with Bob and come away with any opinion other than he is one of the more thoughtful communications folks. Like most of the people on this list, Bob does an exceptional job of maintaining active on social media, but the impression one gets from reading his post regularly is that he never posts something just to keep a regular schedule or to hit an artificial deadline. Everything he writes has clear purpose, well-articulated key messages and thoughtful conclusions. This blogger’s judgment (which may be way off) is that he is naturally a man of few words and therefore makes every post, tweet and comment count for something.

Sword and the Script by Frank Strong 
Twitter: @Frank_Strong
Frank does more by 9 a.m., than I do in a full day…or something like that. Like many of the folks on this list, Frank is also a must follow on Twitter. He is always quick to join a conversation, share an inspirational story and provide his clear opinion. I give him credit not only for his level of engagement, but also his conviction and professionalism. Like few others, Frank can tell you that your opinion is way off-base and that you are out of your mind in a way that makes you appreciate the feedback.

Socialized by Joel Postman
Twitter: @jpostman
The former Cisco communications guy recently turned Brocade staffer, Joel Postman is a must read because unlike most blogs out there and even on this list, Joel has more of a corporate communications perspective which is often much different than the agency / consultant view point. It has long been the opinion of this blogger that the online communications community would benefit from more internal communication voices. Joel goes a long way to filling that void.

PR at Sunrise by Andrew Worob 
Twitter: @Worob
Andrew as much as anyone is plugged into – for lack of a better term – the PR pop culture. He is always commenting or driving conversations that clearly resonate with a large segment of the industry. He has really built a following and continues to provide his audience with a steady flow of PR specific commentary that is a great resource for everyone, but especially for young professionals still finding their way in the industry. A recent favorite from Andrew was Are You a PR Puppet or a PR Counselor?

PR Warrior by Trevor Young
Twitter: @trevoryoung
Trevor Young is highly regarded as a top blogger in Australia who came to my attention just a bit too late to make last year’s list – my fault. His has been a must read ever since. Not sure if it is just a result of the Internet making the world a smaller place or not, but there seems to be a growing number of quality PR folks from Australia. Trevor just nails it. Solid, on-point, always good topics, strong opinion, educational etc. all in all, another must read. Interested in hearing what he has learned while blogging for four years? There is a post for that. He also keeps a solid list of recommended bloggers that is worth checking out.

The Buzz by Mike Schaffer 
Twitter: @mikeschaffer
Professor Schaffer is one of those bloggers that readers drop everything to read his new posts because he does a good job of being predictably unpredictable. His posts hit on a range of topics not always confined simply to public relations or social media measurement etc. You never know what you are going to get, but you know it will always be entertaining.

HighTalk by George Snell
Twitter: @HighTalk
One of this blogger’s most recent discoveries. Not sure how his blog didn’t find its way to the top of the must read list earlier, but thanks to a local (Boston) industry event (Publicity Club of New England) the introduction was made and George’s writing did the rest. Usual disclaimer, this post isn’t the reason he is on the list, but it is a good sample – How to Spot a Social Media Consultant.

C-Level Strategies by Lisa Petrilli
Twitter: @LisaPetrilli
Probably the most unique selection on the list. Lisa’s blog, as the title suggests, is more about business than it is about day-to-day public relations, social media and marketing activities. That being said her writing is as relevant as any on this list. Admittedly, this blogger was originally drawn to Lisa’s writing based on her Introverts Guide and related blog posts on the subject, but the inclusion on this list is based on the value, insight and total subject matter addressed on her blog.

Thus concludes the 2012 (and probably last edition) of PR33. As a special bonus, here is the 2012 PR33 Twitter list. Yes, this includes more than 33 members as some blogs have multiple contributors and some have blog specific Twitter accounts.

    Thanks so much for including PR at Sunrise in this list! Appreciate the mention, Paul!

  2. January 16, 2012 at 12:58 pm | #3

    Wow, I am very honored to be included on your list, Paul! I look up to so many of the other bloggers in this list, it’s kind of like being with the “cool kids” in high school. Plus, I have found a few more blogs to add to my Google Reader this week. Here’s to another year of blogging and sharing thoughtful content :)

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:41 am | #4

      It is well deserved. Just trying to show some appreciation to the folks that do it right and provide me with lots of good reading. The ‘cool kids’ are lucky to have you hanging out with them. :)

    • January 17, 2012 at 2:14 pm | #5

      Thank you for the nomination, Krista! You just rock big time!

  3. January 16, 2012 at 1:00 pm | #6

    Goodness Paul! Thank YOU for the feedback. Your comments are something I’ll internalize and reflect about. I try to be all about options: developing courses of action and thinking through the pros and cons. There are benefits and drawbacks to (nearly) every clever idea! Cheers! Thanks for listing me along side so many intelligent minds.

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:43 am | #7

      You are very welcome Frank. Don’t internalize or reflect too much. No one wants you to change. Thanks for the comment, the quality blogs and for sharing your thoughts online. It really is appreciated.

  4. January 16, 2012 at 1:07 pm | #8

    Paul, thanks so much for including InkHouse! We are truly honored.

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:45 am | #9

      You are very welcome Beth. Thanks for providing all the great reading over the past year.

  5. January 16, 2012 at 2:57 pm | #10

    Thanks for the call out to Beyond the Hype Paul. Great Job pulling this together. I appreciated your candid, unbiased judgement.

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:47 am | #11

      My pleasure Bill. It’s been good to be able to reconnect with some old friends at LPP via these online forums. I’ll keep reading as long as you guys are writing.

  6. January 16, 2012 at 4:59 pm | #12

    Great list. I’ll try harder next year. @Culpwrit

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:49 am | #13

      Ha ha. No slight was intended. I’ll be sure to keep reading. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.

  7. January 16, 2012 at 8:36 pm | #14

    My heart is filled with gratitude, Paul. Your snark-support means that you’re a true Twitter friend. Thanks for putting this list together. Now I don’t have to think this year.

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:51 am | #15

      Jules, as always, I appreciate your support. I’m glad I’m able to save you all that thinking time. Hopefully you’ll put it to good use and provide us all with even more blog posts.

  8. January 16, 2012 at 9:17 pm | #16

    Paul–Thank you for including HeidiCohen.com on your list. You can always count (pun intended) on us! Congrats to the others on this list–what great company. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:52 am | #17

      Heidi, your comment actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks for all the great content and for having a sense of humor.

  9. January 16, 2012 at 11:10 pm | #18

    Nice work Paul – amazing amount of work to put this together. Big kisses for you xxxxx

    • January 17, 2012 at 12:56 am | #19

      Thanks Andrea. It was way more time consuming than I expected, but gave me an opportunity to really catch up on my blog reading. And make no mistake, yours is one of my favorite blogs for reading pleasure. Maybe I need to expand my categories next year to include best all around blog without the bollocks. Seriously, love reading your updates and seeing how well you are doing.

  10. January 17, 2012 at 8:07 am | #20

    You are hilarious! I do, in fact, have content creators locked in the basement. I can’t let them out because they’re afraid of the sunshine, but if fed well, they do nice work. And, it’s OK to say you have to set aside an hour to catch up. I do too and I don’t think it’s creepy at all.

    In all seriousness, thanks for including Spin Sucks with some people I consider friends as well as some I haven’t yet met but respect the heck out of.

  11. January 17, 2012 at 8:39 am | #21

    Paul – I see Bill beat me to the punch, but I’ll say that this is an excellent effort on your part – once again. Thanks for the shout out. The best part of this is the straight up opinion about each blog. Thanks also for not including ONLY ones that I already know about.

  12. January 17, 2012 at 12:47 pm | #22

    Paul–

    THANK YOU for including The Buzz on this list!

    I can assure you that my upcoming course at American University will adhere to the same guidelines as my blog – you may not see the correlation at first, but by the end, it all makes sense, and hopefully you smiled/laughed/cried/otherwise emoted.

    It’s an honor to be grouped in with such an esteemed list!

  13. January 17, 2012 at 1:33 pm | #23

    Not only a great list … a lot of WORK went into this! Thank you for looking past the guest posts, video and other blogging “sins” as I try to shake it up. Many thanks for the honor.

  14. January 17, 2012 at 2:08 pm | #24

    Paul,

    This list has some of my favorite bloggers on it and I’m honored to be included among them. Thank you to Krista Paplau for nominating me and to YOU for including me.

    There are some great sounding blogs here that I’ll have to check out. I’m always looking for new content to add to my Google reader and many of these will undoubtedly become must-reads for me!

    Thanks for taking the time to sort through cyberspace to share some great finds with us!

  15. January 17, 2012 at 2:49 pm | #25

    Wow, thanks for including me- and let me know if you sign up for the PMC. It’s a great event!

  16. January 17, 2012 at 5:59 pm | #26

    Doug, Amber, Mark, Gini and Ted, thanks for the kind words. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. I did worry about being scene as the guy that references a bunch of popular bloggers as a way to beg for attention, but thought calling out all of you as the most valuable bloggers was worth the risk.

    • January 17, 2012 at 7:04 pm | #27

      Ha ha! I’m not popular enough for anyone to try to curry favor with me, Paul. That’s why being on your list is that much sweeter ;-) Thanks again!

  17. January 18, 2012 at 2:01 am | #28

    Hi Paul, thank you so much for adding the PR Warrior to this list, not to mention the kind words :) I follow a few of the blogs mentioned above but looks I’ve got a lot more to add to my list! Thanks again for the compilation and inclusion.

  18. January 18, 2012 at 5:12 pm | #29

    Paul,

    I am genuinely honored to be included in this post with such an esteemed list of colleagues – particularly as a bit of a unique contributor. It means the world to me that you found my writing to be valuable and insightful – I will do my best to continue to live up to the honor. All the best to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart,

    Lisa Petrilli

  19. January 18, 2012 at 6:07 pm | #30

    This was very kind of you, Paul, and a complete surprise to me that Waxing UnLyrical was included. Some of the others I expected, but you have also given me many new blogs to read, and that is a great gift. Thank you so much.

  20. January 19, 2012 at 11:02 am | #31

    To say I’m blown away by this would be an understatement. All of the bloggers you mention here are leaders in our industry and an inspiration to me. People like Shonali Burke, Gini Dietrich, et al. are folks who drive all to be better. Your opinion is absolutely appreciated and I’m humbled. Thanks, Paul.
    Congrats to all of the others included. You are awesome.

  21. January 19, 2012 at 11:49 am | #32

    Congratulations, Jason!

  22. January 19, 2012 at 5:44 pm | #33

    Paul, it takes a ton of work to read in detail and provide thoughtful reasons for a “best of” list instead of just slicing and dicing metrics. I’m honored to be included with these really smart PR colleagues but most of all, thanks for adding your energy and insight. Regards.

  23. January 19, 2012 at 9:48 pm | #34

    Paul thanks so much for this. It’s an outstanding list, and the number of amazing PR blogs seems to grow every day. I’m honored to be among so many terrific thinkers and content creators, many of whom I’m delighted to call friends and colleagues. My best to you and everyone on the list – this year and in the future. Remember that every blogger started with the exact same audience…..zero readers. It wasn’t so very long ago that only my wife and mom read my blog, and given how many options there are out there, I’m grateful for every reader, every day. Thanks for taking the considerable time to put a post like this together!

  24. January 20, 2012 at 12:42 pm | #35

    Paul???!!! I am blown away and honored, humbled. Thank you so very much for your descriptor above and for including me. Wow. What I always preach to newbie bloggers — give it a year and things begin to happen. You’ve proven my point; thanks for the gift.

  25. January 23, 2012 at 12:28 pm | #36

    I read many of these all the time, need to revisit a few others.. but the best thing about this list – a few ‘new to me anyway’ blogs and tweeps. Thanks for putting this together Paul.

  26. January 23, 2012 at 10:27 pm | #37

    Great list, Paul. I know that must have taken quite a while to assemble. I only know a few of the bloggers mentioned, Amber, Jayme, Gini and Mark, but those are A+ bloggers. I look forward to exploring the others you have chosen. Thanks for sharing this with us and if you ever discover who is hiding in Gini’s basement, please post on that too!

    • January 24, 2012 at 8:27 am | #38

      #RockHot for saying so, Carolyn. Thank you! Happy Birthday to the Wonder of Tech, too!

    • January 24, 2012 at 8:30 am | #39

      They’re clones! I’m trying to figure out how to sell them. Don’t you think I could make a mint that way?

    Hi Paul, sorry I’m a little late to the game with this comment but I just found this list today. Full disclosure, I’m a grad student in PR (NYU) and for a Social Media class I have to post comments on social media/PR blogs. The semester is winding down and I wish I found this list sooner! It has been incredibly helpful and I’ve found (and commented on) some truly thought-provoking posts. Here’s a question for you though – you claim that most of these blogs are “must-reads.” Not only am I a part-time grad student, but I also work full time at an agency = busy. I want to stay current with everything PR, but between actually practicing PR and studying it, there is little time for blog reading. Any advice? Thanks again for this list. (Last thought – I can’t imagine how busy these folks are who Write the blogs….I really don’t know how they/you do it.)
