Blogging Policy and Pitching Me Pitching You

This is my blog. My employer, DDB Canada, and by extension Tribal DDB or Radar DDB, does not have an official blogging policy so I’ll continue to try my best to “blog smart”; to add value to anyone reading my content.

“Everything posted on this blog is my personal opinion and does not necessarily represent the views of my employer or its clients.”

This is where I write about what interests me and the people I speak to. If I talk about a client, past or present, I’ll disclose it, just as I will any other conflicts of interest; perceived or otherwise. I won’t disclose confidential information or information my firm considers proprietary.

No one tells me what to write about. I manage this blog’s content from start to finish – this includes comments. By posting a comment to this blog, you are granting its author (me) full and irrevocable license to your comment and acknowledge that the authors do not have a duty to modify or withdraw posts, but that we may do so if we choose, for any reason.

For example, I may edit your comment for rogue html tags but not usually for content – without the poster’s consent – although it is within my rights. I’ve never deleted a comment and if you, the commenter, keep your comments clean, on topic and free from personal attacks, I’ll never delete a comment either. Unless it’s spam. We hate spam.

Comments are pre-set to accept up to two embedded links before viewing it as spam and putting your comment into moderation. I can’t guarantee your comment will be accepted any time soon unless I’m on a mad kick of checking my stats – but you can always email me to let me know there’s a problem.

Flaming. We’re all adults. Discussions work better than shouting matches. So don’t flame anyone.

If, at anytime, you have a problem with anything I write, just email me and we’ll chat.

Pitching Me Pitching You

This is a PR friendly blog. If you have something that may be of interest to junior and mid-level PRs, please use the contact form below. If you’re pitching a book, be ready to send a copy. If you’re pitching a conference, be ready to offer a free place (for me or for a reader). If you’re pitching a cool new product or service, please be willing to let me try it out before I tell anyone else about it.
