First off, the only reason Kent himself isn't on my list is that I suspect some sort of double jeopardy rule applies to internet memes. In other words, ye may not tag the one that tagged ye.
That said, here are five bloggers that make me think:
Robert French, PR Professor at Auburn University. He writes infOpinions for his students, and has a number of other blogs, including Marcom Blog, written by practitioners for the students. Robert understands that you actually have to prove your point. Saying it three times, and louder each time, doesn't cut it. You need proof. One of my favorite posts this year: Blogs, Press Releases and Farmers in Appalachian Valleys.
Mary Schmidt gets customer service issues like no other marketer I read. Currently, I have 15 of her posts saved in Bloglines because I want to do something with them. She's also a fellow SciFi fan with whom I can dish Battlestar Galactica spoilers.
For some international flavor, PR blogger Tom Murphy. Tom was one of the first PR bloggers, and his no-nonsense approach to the practice of the profession is refreshing. Perhaps because he's all the way over there in Ireland, he's not as deafened by the echo chamber (echo chamber).
And since my life isn't just about my professional persona, my final blogger is Mom-101. Liz is frank, honest and smart. Her writing is exquisite and her ability to balance blogging about her personal life on Mom-101 with her professional life has inspired me to start a new blog (coming soon) in which I am going to explore digital photography with my 7 year old son.
The participation rules are simple:
- If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
- Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
- Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
