Blog: Share Your Link Love

By: Gini Dietrich | March 8, 2010 | 

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!

    The Marketing Mark is my evolving blog of observations about marketing, social media, advertising and things like that.

    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.”

  • PR Nonsense ( is the corporate blog of March Communications, and, at times, as the name indicates, is full of nonsense! And while all the posts make for a good read, the majority discuss the latest technologies, PR tactics, and social media fads that have the industry buzzing! So check it out and find us on Twitter @MarchPR 🙂

  • New Media Martini

    It is a new blog, a personal blog, and definitely, an acquired taste. Among other things I use it to support and annotate the many fun new media publishing projects that my company is involved in, like Social Media #Soiree, Women Are Not Funny Radio, and Kay Kay’s Divorce. I love to write and do a lot of writing, however my blog is a place where I enjoy playing with words and thoughts and writing in more of a whacked out style than is appropriate in much of my work.

    My name is Kay Ballard, so given that, it is not surprising that my twitter name is @KayBallard.
