#FollowFriday: Scott Hepburn

Media EmergingIt’s time for #FollowFriday, which (in my book) means it’s time for the recommended blog of the week!

About a year ago, I received a direct message on Twitter from Scott Hepburn. He mentioned that our mutual friend, Amber Naslund, suggested he connect with me. We talked on the phone and immediately hit it off. He is, without a doubt, one of the smartest communication minds around.

This becomes pretty evident when you read his blog, Media Emerging.A little bit personal, a little bit B2B and franchise marketing, and a little bit new media, the thinking that Scott puts into his content is very different than what you read on most communication professional’s blogs.

He doesn’t write what everyone else writes. He collects case studies (and shares them), he opens comments for debates on topics such as the ethics of ghost writing, and he downright challenges the way you think.

Subscribe to Media Emerging and read it voraciously. You won’t be disappointed.

  • I completely agree. I especially love the human touches he masterfully blends with the meaningful information (like getting his son to take his medicine). The Amber-Scott relationship comes as no surprise … she’s fantastic too. Thanks Gini!!
