When I started writing BMBY, just over a year ago, it was intended to be a sandbox for me to practice what I was trying to preach to my clients.
Fast forward twelve months and BMBY is an integral part of my life, from both a personal and professional standpoint. I have a great new job, exciting new career path and some great friends.
BMBY by the numbers:
- 12 months
- 3 jobs – thanks Strategic Objectives, Fleishman-Hillard and iStudio
- 269 posts
- 727 comments
- 400 (or so) subscribers
- 847 Technorati links
- 14,434th in the blogosphere (out of about 70m…nice)
- 34,391 page views
- 27,252 spam comments
- 1 speaking appearance…but open to more
- Countless new friends
I’m away for two weeks and definitely won’t be writing anything next week, but there are some draft posts saved that should pop-up intermittently throughout the week.
Finally, a huge thanks to all and sundry who take the time to read, comment, subscribe, criticise and link to the posts on this blog.
It’s been a great year, and, I hope, many more to come.

Check out this UK tech PR copywriter, “The Friendly Ghost”, for yet another list of PR/marketing blogs.
The Flak-o-sphere is definitely mimicking real life – no-one can agree what to measure, what tools to use and how to use analyse the results.
A stunning indictment, if one is needed, of the need for standardised metrics both on a national or international basis for the PR industry.
Otherwise we’ll just be running around applying ridiculous multiples like 5.8 to all our impressions numbers to “wow” the client.
