Other Countries Threats to Bush made in other countries are obviously not germane to this essay, since the Secret Service has no jurisdiction outside the United States. You may want to turn off your computer volume before clicking on the first three links below, as the pages have annoying embedded music. Michelle Malkin has a roundup of a few uninvestigated threatening images about Bush.
This is not a post about parenting. I put on my professional hat for this one. I did however, do a recap of all the recaps that my fellow dad bloggers published regarding the recent Dad 2. So if you want dad content, scroll all the way down!
Some of you know that I also work in the PR industry as a digital strategist. This dual citizenship on both sides of the influencer marketing equation has served me quite well in my career. I can provide clients with the "real deal" on how to work with bloggers, and the blogging community knows that they have an advocate on the inside.
Kind of like insider trading without the orange jumpsuit. But with great access comes great responsibility. I'm privy to the frustrations that my industry peers have toward bloggers, but I am just as attuned to the pet peeves that bloggers have against agency and brand folks.
I cringe a lot in my day to day, is what I'm saying. I was recently afforded the opportunity to do something to alleviate this cringing when the organizers of the Dad 2.
The Secrets of PR I wanted to bring this panel together to help bloggers and brands better understand the inner workings of both sides. I want to share with you one of the main takeaways that I hoped everyone in the room walked away with, because I have seen the lightbulbs of sudden understanding go off whenever I have explained this to PR peers and blogger brethren alike.
Yes, this has happened and you cannot prove that it hasn't. To do this, I'm going to kick it dad-style. I'm going to sit you agency and brand folks on one side of me, and you blogger influencer types on the other. And I'm going to be doing a lot of finger wagging.
I understand that both sides may get their feelings hurt a little bit as I do this, but believe me it is for your own good. For our own good.
And I wish I could say this hurts me more than it hurts you, but it doesn't. I actually take much pleasure in doing this because it's been a long time coming.
I know you feel like you are the center of the world, but you aren't. You are a small piece of the marketing equation. But more important than that, you exist in an ecosystem we call media.
You may not like that, and it may not be fair nor accurate, but that's the reality in which you exist. I know that as a blogger, you aren't the same thing as a news outlet, because you are a storyteller, you are driven by passion and your job is not to cover the news.
You don't even have to be objective. You are allowed and even expected to have opinions and passions and biases. The "media" does not have this luxury. Before I get to my main point, I'm going to turn now to the other side. Bloggers are not just waiting in the wings for content inspiration from you.
They are not seeking breaking news like your traditional media contacts might be. Bloggers don't "need" news to thrive. They are not reporting on anything. It is not in fact their job at all.
They are regular folks who have somehow managed to parlay their talent for storytelling or content creation to attract an audience that is highly valuable to you, and they owe you nothing. They put a lot of work into developing compelling content and cultivating an audience that trusts and likes them.
Everything you value about them is something they have invested time, energy and money in. Whenever they work with you, in other words, they are doing you a favor.GIVEAWAY: Will is generously giving away a Kindle copy of his latest ebook, Writing for the Web, to the person who leaves his favourite grupobittia.com points if you make him laugh!
