Link/Comment Baiting

Something I don’t do a good job of on this blog is letting the reader into the inner workings of the iStudio office. Partly because I’m a pretty shocking blogger right now and partly because I think that’s more for the iStudio blog. Which I’m equally delinquent on.

So perhaps that should stop and for my first trick, some blatant link/comment baiting which adds no real value apart from to direct you, the reader to some super smart people and to thank them for providing great, thought provoking content.

I was recently asked to provide a list of my favourite PR/marketing blogs for an internal elearning course. As I’ve got everything in an easy-to-cut-and-paste format, here they are, in no particular order.

Thanks guys!

    Hey, Ed ..

    Thanks for the pointers to MNIK and One Degree! It’s great to have this kind of list handy; I get asked in a lot of presentations for collections like “what are the top 3 marketing blogs” or “what should I read to get caught up on Web 2.0”. I forget how overwhelming it can be to people just starting out. Heck, my blogroll is out of control – so much content.

    Cheers … Kate

  2. Thanks Ed – you’re always tops in my books (err… Blogs) as well ūüôā

  3. Thanks mate.

    BMBY is at the top of my list also.

    Aw shucks, thanks for the link, Ed. I couldn’t be more pleas…er, wait. No link huh?

    I guess if I can turn all this downtime into uptime, I’ll earn my link. Cheers man!

    what Bob said… although I’m going to make a massive stretch and claim that your linking to Davey Jones’ blog is a secret nod of admiration to all of Hill & Knowlton’s more prolific bloggers, but you can’t really say so given the competitive situation… am I right, am I right???

  6. Thanks, man. I just need to start blogging more again. Stupid moves!
