In a surprising public admission, a top executive at the world's largest independent PR agency, Edelman, yesterday totally dismissed the idea of blogging. Comments by SVP Mike Krempasky have PR industry insiders totally dumbfounded. Blogging is the cornerstone of the firm's highly promoted Me2Revolution.
Eighteen... That’s how many posts have ended up in my “draft” queue for this blog. Eighteen aborted attempts to keep up with blogging since my last, throw-away post about the return of a television show. Not terribly impressive at all. Downright sorry, even.
Almost every post has the same formula. Open with an apology for not writing more often, odd since people long ago stopped reading this blog. Follow up with a brief observation about either 1) a piece of news or 2) a recent personal experience. Rinse. Repeat.
Honestly - five years after I started blogging, the amount of respect if not slap-the-forehead disbelief I have for people that have stayed at this exercise is astounding.
Honestly... from Edelman that's refreshing.
In the spirit of full disclosure, we are wondering if Krempasky's remarks will be included in the Me2Revolution sales presentation PowerPoint.

On Thursday, March 8, 2007 at 7:41 AM, Ronn Torossian, President and CEO of 5WPR, emphatically promised that he was going to sue us. No real reason, he was just irritated by our teasing him about getting in bed with pornographer Joe Francis. Anyway, Ronn gave his obscenity-laced word that we'd see the complaint in 72 hours. It's now late by
