By blogging standards and the pace of the social wed after five weeks I consider my five Friday blog suggestions to be a well established tradition. Here are five unequivocally excellent blogs to kick off your Friday with.
1. Media Monkey Must read musings from media insider(s) at the Guardian. Amusing anecdote coupled with scurrilous suggestion. Who is the monkey?
2.Ear I Am Well written and frequently self deprecating stuff from PR man par excellence Nigel Hughes. If you want to read about Newton-le-willows, Tranmere Rovers, some PR stuff, having kids, good music, knowing where your food comes and injustice it’s all here.
3. The Marple Leaf The work of ‘insider’ editor (and former Broadcast magazine journalist) Michael Taylor. Regularly updated with music, media, politics and Blackburn Rovers, since 2006.
4. PR Squared The personal blog from the PR and social media guru, Boston and San Francisco based Todd Defren. Good humour and words of wisdom throughout.
5. Slugger O’Toole From Belfast, Slugger O’Toole has a reputation for intelligent dialogue on a range controversial and important issues in the Republic of Ireland, Britain and the wider world. Penned in English and sometimes in Irish by Mick Fealty and co.
