Here are five blogs that you might want to start following this Friday. With four consecutive posts I can safely claim this as a regular feature. The idea is borrowed from the twitter concept of Follow Friday with a faint whiff of Ian Dale’s Daley Dozen but with a lower blog count.
Here are the latest five that you might want to dip into or add to your RSS reader …on a Friday. As ever it is a spectrum that covers PR, a bit of politics, some media and other stuff to. Here’s the smorgasbord for this Friday…
1. Alastair Campbell.org Love him or loathe him, and for me it’s neither, you can not deny his iconic status. He’s a journalist, he know’s a great deal and this blog is a great read. He’s a spin doctor who has reinvented himself as a social web aficionado. Log on and have a look.
2. Stephen Newton’s diary of sorts… One of the first ever Manchester bloggers and the voice or reason. Stephen tackles big subjects and always has a great angle. I liked the Cadburys eyebrow ad…he didn’t. One of my top picks since way back when.
3. MAD or Media Arts and Disruption. (Disclosure: it’s from TBWA\ and I work for the group but I’m not involved with the blog) If you work in advertising or marketing, MAD is a must add to your RSS. Great work.
4. PR nowandthen The work of Katie Moffatt or Katie Rocket as she is known in some social media circles. She is self effacing but really gets it all, far more than most. How many people do you know from the North of England that are currently at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin Texas?
5. Sarah Hartley – The Hartley 2.0 blog, not as essential as H2O the personal blog of journalist Sarah Hartley who is the head digital honcho at the Manchester Evening News. She blogs for them and also on food hence her social media moniker ‘Foodie Sarah’.
Enjoy. It’s all good.
