Former PR blogger admits: I can’t quit you

September 28, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Okay, okay, for all of you that looked at my retirement as a temporary situation, you were right. I just can’t quit you.

Truth be told, actually, it isn’t about you…it was time to pay for my domain (hey, we are talking about almost $20 here) so I had to decide if I was going to keep up a blog or let it die. While I’m happy that I stopped forcing myself to blog regularly, I just wasn’t ready to let this site die.

After almost 10 full minutes of soul searching, I decided that what I’ve really missed over the last few months (since I stopped blogging) was interaction with other PR professionals, so I’m going to move to the next phase in my personal development and embrace being a has been / never was and relaunch the site as a Q&A site about public relations / communication / social media / whatever I want.

Many of the people I’ve been fortunate enough to create relationships with over the last couple of years are people that I find very interesting, but have had little opportunity to actually spend any real time with, so over the course of the next few, insert random time frame here, I’m going to unleash my inner Arsenio Hall and interview some of the more interesting people I know in the industry.

These interviews will be focused on PR, marketing, communications, social media etc., but will also (best I can) include some insight into what makes these people unique.

I’ve already started contacting people to be included in this ongoing series, but please do let me know if you would be interested in sharing your story and participating. You can comment below or email me directly at Paulrobertspar@gmail.com.

    OK, was I one of those guys who said you’d be back? Do I get to say I told you so? Nah; won’t do it…just gonna say welcome home! This is #RockHot news for a Friday! #FF and all that jazz!

    P.S. Are you in a tribe? I want to form a PR’ish tribe with Frank Strong, too; and you! Let me know.

      You may actually be one of the few that can remember Arsenio. That doesn’t make us old, it makes us…who am I kidding, man, we are old. Talk to you soon.

    Welcome back.

    I always liked the way your personality came through your writing.

    Gave your a blog a distinctive voice.

    Look forward to dusting off the bookmark.

      That is very kind of you Lou. I appreciate you saying that because from time to time (early on) I did try to be more professional – for lack of a better word – and kept my personality out of my writing, but it quickly started to feel like work.

    Welcome back! Great to see you back and good to know $20 can get you something worthwhile every so often!

    • September 29, 2012 at 10:28 am

      ha, ha. Truth be told, it is actually only $18, but that made me sound cheap.

    You crack me up! It’s like a disease. And I’m in for whatever help you need.
