It’s time for my weekly round-up of the best blog posts I have seen around the web this week! Here’s the top five in no particular order…

Profile of a Twitter User via Marketing Conversation

“Happy Friday all Marketing Conversation readers! I send you off to sunshine and shenanigans with this fun infographic. Thanks WebDoctus. I hope you all strive to be mensch’s and are nice to newbie’s.”

20 of the world’s most clever Twitter bios via {grow} blog

“Last year I started ‘collecting’ great Twitter bios and kind of got hooked.  When I decided to publish ‘The All-Time Best Twitter bios,’ and ‘The 20 Funniest Twitter Bios,’ readers of {grow} seemed to get hooked too!  So here we are with the third edition. These are all real Twitter bios …”


I’ve learned I don’t know anything.  Have also learned that people will pay for what I know.  Life is good.


Living one day at a time, with a fresh baked cookie. Okay.  And with a coffee.  And maybe some chocolate. But I promise to take my vitamins.


Insert pretentious crap about myself here.

Twitter’s 13 All-Time Most Epic Tweets (And The Stories Behind Them) via All Twitter

“In its 5-year history Twitter has accomplished a heck of a lot. Because the platform has been so readily adopted on computers and (especially) mobile handsets around the world, Twitter is so often right there at life’s important moments, which are then quickly documented with a tweet.

And at other times, tweets are used to provide follow-up information, commentary and even apologies. And with the network’s 250+ million users, that news gets shared (and re-shared) at an incredible pace.

10 Ways to promote your Facebook fan page via Marketing Conversation

Social Media Examiner shared some great tips for promoting your Facebook fan page. The first step is creating one.

It’s a valuable tool to have because it targets so many different audiences, is an easy place to share information and is constantly accessible and amenable to updates.”

5 Ways PR is Like Making Beer via PR Breakfast Club

“Enjoy PR and a frosty bev?  They might be more similar than you think.

  1. It takes time – From cracking an ice cold one, you probably know that beer tastes good. But what you probably didn’t know is that it takes time to make the liquidy goodness. Much like a PR campaign, it takes more than just a few quick whisks of a wand to get going.”

And a recap of what happened on Cision Blog

As the Ratings Fall

“This is a guest post from Lisa Manhire, Senior Content Manager of Broadcast Monitoring and Hibo Aden, Supervisor of Media Research at Cision.

As a loyal viewer of a daytime drama, I was disappointed when I heard that All My Children andOne Life to Live were cancelled a few months back. AMC’s final episode will air later this month and OLTL will end in January.  My show is safe (for now), but as networks continue to slash budgets and look for fresh, new programming is it only a matter of time before all soaps become a thing of the past?”

Intro to Google+ Q&A

“Last week we hosted the webinar ‘Intro to Google+.’  We had a lot of great questions and unfortunately couldn’t get to all of them within our allotted time.  So here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that we received.”

Client Story 2: PitchEngine, the tool you didn’t know you needed

“As promised, every Wednesday, over the next several weeks, I am going to share with you the conversations I’ve had recently with PitchEngine customers so you can learn firsthand how PR and Marketing professionals are utilizing this social publishing tool for their full arsenal of branded content.

This week’s interview is with Doyle Albee, COO of Metzger Associates. Metzger is a full-service, PR-driven marketing firm. ‘By PR-driven, we mean that our outreach begins with words — words that customers and prospects search for when making purchasing decisions. Our Account Services team supports our PR pros in making sure that our clients’ keywords are placed strategically, in the right order and density, in every news release, contributed article, blog post, blog comment, web page, tweet, Facebook or LinkedIn page, speech, annual report, etc.’ says Albee.”
