This Is a Test

A local (er, I mean, massively global) communications firm has asked to me to give a presentation today on blogging. I'm not an expert, but I'll give it a shot. I'll tell them about some famous blogs, such as The Drudge Report, wonkette, instapundit. I'll mention some European bloggers and where they can be found. And I will eat a sandwich or two.

Craig, I guess that anyone who blogs is pretty much considered gonzo -- may Hunter S. Thompson rest in peace. My bet is that he isn't. He's probably ruffling feathers wherever he is.

I wanted to thank you for coming by to talk to all of us at Weber Shandwick. Your talk, "Blog Bites Man: Weblogging from Lunatic Fringe to Media Mainstream" was good, if not more well behaved than I would have expected. So, THANK YOU.

It's not often that we as consultants get to have someone present to us -- it was nice to be on 'the other side of the table' for once.

And, there was direct effect from your visit. Not only did we find out about the world of blogs (ranging from the pluses, the minuses to the 'who even cares about your fairy...?!'), it may just be that someone from the Brussels office is knighted as office blogger.

I've already set up my own blog which you watched me do before your very eyes. God help those who stumble on it. I guess they can blame you? :)

Best,

Craig, thanks for taking the time to come to our office and explain the mad, bad world of the blogsphere.

Stay funky and keep smiling :)

Et est-ce qu’on peut préciser exactement quel cabinet de conseil vous a invité de parler des blogs? Ou est-ce que c’est un grand secret??

Ahem, Excuse me, Frenchie, but it was clear in the thank you message that it was WEBER SHANDWICK. Or maybe I should say 'Le Weber Shandwick' ?? Do you get it now?

The secret is out! Sorry, was trying to be professional. Now it is only a couple of you who remain un grand secret. Thanks, whoever you all are, for driving up my site traffic...

Thanks for the interesting insight into the world of blogs. Honestly, I had no idea what they were, I'm not sure I know now either :-). It's great to have found out about other sources of information apart from MSM. Blogs are different and I guess in one way or another and at some level or another, we all try to be....different. And you have just given us a hint. Thanks.

Simona (funky hair...thanks g)

Everyone seems to be going with the funky theme, and I like it. Next time I'm bringing more Chic, and possibly some Earth, Wind and Fire...
