#FollowFriday: Danny Brown

By: Gini Dietrich | June 18, 2010 | 

Today’s #FollowFriday is Danny Brown. If you’re in PR and/or marketing and don’t already know him, change that immediately! He is the one person that, at least three times a week, I read his blog and think, “Dang! I wish I’d thought of that first!”

I first met Danny nearly 18 months ago when he worked to launch 12for12K, a community that raises $12,000 for a different charity each month.  I started reading his blog voraciously and soon I felt like I’d known him all my life.

Then he wrote about pimping your blog in this comments of his post and an idea was stolen! I shamelessly created the same idea here, but I did give him credit!  A lot of the blogs I now read are because of that blog post that received more than 100 comments. And some of the blog URLs posted there have become #FollowFriday recommendations.

Although Danny (and Mark Schaefer – who I recommended last week) is competing with us for PR Blog of the Year, I recommend him to anyone. And, if you haven’t yet voted in that competition, and don’t want to vote for us, vote for the one of the two of them!

A Canadian (you know I love Canadians) and champion of HAPPO, I know you’ll find valuable and steal-able information every time you read Danny Brown.
