Blog: Share Your Link Love

I would love to say that I was riding my bike (still stuck inside on the trainer and put in 200 miles last week…so I have A LOT of thinking time) and I came up with this brilliant idea to let you pimp your blog here, but I cannot take credit.

A couple of weeks ago, Toronto HAPPO champion, Danny Brown, invited his blog readers to pimp their blogs in the comments of his blog. You should go check it out – An Invite to Pimp Your Blog – because there are a myriad of blogs on there, which surprised me. I thought it would be all PR, social media, or marketing blogs. When, in fact, those are in the minority.

So, I invite you to do the same in the comments here. Let’s see what kinds of blogs you have and let’s see if we can find you some new readers.

Please include the following:

1. The blog’s name and link

2. A one sentence description about why someone should read your blog.

3. Your full name

4. Your Twitter handle (if you have one)

As an alternative, if you don’t have a blog, give us one blog you love to read in the comments.

Go ahead! Pimp your blog!

Gini,

thanks for the opportunity to pimp my blog, it’s really nice of you.

The Marketing Mark is my evolving blog of observations about marketing, social media, advertising and things like that. I say its evolving, because it’s becoming a little more personal rather than just informational – I’m starting to put a little bit more of myself and my opinions and observations into the articles.

Thanks again!!!

Much like good ‘ol MC Hammer broke it down with his “Hammer Time” nearly two decades ago, our version – HMA Time – will break it down, too. As PR practitioners of varying ages and experience levels, each of our personal blogs on the profession of PR gives us the chance to sound off about the good, bad and ugly in our industry and those related to our field. We welcome participation from other PR people, media folks and anyone else who stops by.

To quote Mr. Hammer once more, this blog is “Too legit. Too legit to quit.”

THIS IS A WARNING.

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES, WHATSOEVER, should any of you read my blog.

http://occamsrazr.com has been known to cause cancer in juvenile laboratory mice. Some say it’s about communications, some say it’s about explaining things, but to be honest, I have no idea what it is about and I WRITE THE DAMNED THING.

I also tweet at http://ike4.me/tweet (@ikepigott), and after more than 25,000 little bursts of narcissism, I don’t know what I’m talking about there, either.

In fact, you probably ought to block me, and report me to Google.

We talk about document assembly, MS Word issues and share contract-related ideas. We tweet as @Exari. Thanks for the platform,
