This week on Inside PR, Martin, Gini and Joe discuss PR, bloggers and blogola.

0:25 Martin opens the show.

1:48 Martin thanks Mary from Buzz4biz.ca for commenting on episode 2.28 and sharing what she would have changed in her career and Katie Stambeck, a PR student, weighs in on what made sense to her in terms of engagement on her blog.

3:32 Joe feels that when people comment on Inside PR topics of discussion and continue the conversation on their blogs, it validates what they do every week.

5:28 Gini announces this week’s topic, inspired by a blog post by Danny Brown. An anonymous blogger, “Sarah”, shares why she thinks PR people get paid and bloggers don’t. Gini disagrees with “Sarah” and tells us why.

8:55 Martin is surprised by Sarah’s comments and thinks she’s missing some of the main points of the social media landscape and networking.

10:05 Joe thinks Sarah’s post is actually tongue-in-cheek.

13:30 Gini asks Joe how he determined that Sarah’s post was supposed to be humourous and Joe explains.

14:00 Joe doesn’t understand why Sarah is writing anonymously.

15:30 Martin agrees and notes that your opinion doesn’t have much value if you don’t have the guts to stand behind it.

16:20 Joe brings up some good points on the topic of social media “A-Listers”.

18:25 Gini agrees and points out it makes more sense to pitch someone who is an influencer in their niche community than an “A-Lister”.

20:02 Joe mentions that Terry Fallis’ book, The Best Laid Plans, has been selected as one of the final five short-list candidates for the Canada Reads Most Essential Canadian Novel of the Decade. Congratulations, Terry!

21:32 Joe recommends that everyone check out Mitch Joel’s interview with Neville Hobson on Mitch’s Six Pixels podcast.

22:40 Martin closes the show.

Our theme music was created by Damon de SzegheoRoger Dey is our announcer.

This week’s episode was produced by Yasmine Kashefi.
