You may or may not know that I co-host Inside PR every Wednesday with Martin Waxman and Joe Thornley, two of my favorite Canadians (don’t worry Andy Donovan and Danny Brown, I said “of”). The podcast airs every Wednesday and we’re now on episode 27 so I think we’ve finally gotten the hang of it! We discuss our views on everything from PR and communications to [&hellip... Read More

If you’ve ever used drop.io to create password-protected sites for your proprietary information, last week’s announcement that they’ve been bought won’t come as a surprise to you. By Facebook. And their founder is joining the Facebook team. I think Facebook is going to beat me to Global Domination with the help of the CEO of drop.io, seemingly-crazy (alright, I’d like to heli-ski, too) Richard Branson-like, son [&hellip... Read More

I just finished reading Little Bee, which is not based on a true story, but is about a couple from London who find themselves involved in the oil war in Nigeria when asked to save their own lives or those of two little girls. I won’t spoil the story for you, but it certainly makes you think about how lucky we are to live in countries [&hellip... Read More

Have you ever fit two weeks into one? That’s how this week has felt, but I have to say that, without Patti Knight, I’d still be digging through emails and would have accomplished nothing. But, because she is a saint and filed emails, answered ones that she could, and left me the ones that could only be answered by me, I got through them all of [&hellip... Read More

Social Media In Spanish and English

It’s the Arment Dietrich Facebook question of the week time…and I’m not sure I have an answer! I know. That NEVER happens! I was JUST telling Justin Brackett’s four year old that I know everything, too.  But Beatriz Mena proved me wrong. She asks, “What do I do with my social media for both Spanish and English visitors?” My answer is in the video, as well [&hellip... Read More

As you know, my top 10 blog posts I read on vacation on Monday included Shel Holtz’s blog about moderating comments. Then, as we were recording InsidePR yesterday, we discussed the issue again. You can read Shel’s post here and listen to the discussion with Joe Thornley here. Sneak peak: Joe and I disagree about moderating blog comments. I included Shel’s post because I think it’s [&hellip... Read More

I’m the Smartest Person In the Room!

By: Gini Dietrich | October 26, 2010 |

There is something happening online that really bothers me. People are calling themselves experts, mavens, and gurus. With no real experience or case studies to back up their claims. This is not new – I noticed it was rampant a few years ago when I began participating online. But last night I was reading a list of the top 25 women who both tweet and blog [&hellip... Read More

Ahhh. I’m back from vacation. Nine days (including the weekends) of pretty much doing what I want. I read five books. I rode 200 miles. I went to functional training twice. I cooked every day. I planted fall flowers. I raked the leaves and put away the furniture for winter. I got out my winter clothes. I slept in. I wrote when I wanted, what I [&hellip... Read More
