On the ball

23 May

I see that Tony Bradley, this year’s CIPR president, now has an official blog.

But I’m most interested to note which of my colleagues has been quickest off the mark to respond. There’s David Phillips (he’s not just quick, he’s usually a week ahead); and comments from Stephen Davies; Antony Mayfield; Stuart Bruce; and a spammer.

I trust Tony will soon find his voice and his niche in this space. I’d advise him to read widely (there are plenty of recommendations to the right). As well as the usual suspects, he’ll learn some lessons in blog writing from people outside the CIPR fold. Heather Smith is a mature student studying Writing for the Media at the College of St Mark and St John in Plymouth. Her blog is a refreshing read that touches on public relations. Chloe Chaplin doesn’t write much, but she’s thoughtful and would like to become more involved in the CIPR. Paull Young is for me consistently the funniest writer in the PR blogosphere. Welcome to another PR voice.

    Yes, I came across this blog today after an email from the CIPR alerting me to it. I immediately wanted to post him about your excellent PR blog, something for him to aspire to, but I assume he knows about it.
    Only should one assume, I never do normally.

    I fear I probably delete CIPR messages too hastily (see today’s entry for context).

    I’d wanted to comment heaping praise on your blog, but you only allow those with Blogger accounts to do so. Do you mean to be so exclusive?

    Richard,
    Thanks for letting me know – I didn’t realise I’d stopped people from commenting.
    Oh dear, I have so much to learn about blogging…..I’m trying to pick it up as I go along – mostly from you guys!
    I’ll see if I can change my settings…..
