join our list - we've got candyArik Hansen put together a terrific list of PR pros who blog and Tweet in the Twin Cities, and it intrigued me. Aren’t many of these folks competitors? Why would they all want to be on the same list?

But then I realized what a cool resource this is. In these uncertain economic times, now more than ever we should be networking and building relationships with other local practitioners and PR bloggers. Remember that list Alvin made a few years ago about how none of the PR agencies in town blogged at the time? Ouch. Think of my list as the exact opposite of that one.

AlvinCherylExperience Columbus and my own agency Fahlgren Mortine have put together great lists of local Twitterers. Dawn has started a wonderful list of Columbus bloggers. Now, with a hat tip to Arik and my aforementioned Tweeps, I’m setting out to create a master list of local PR pros online - and give a little link love to my fellow PR peeps while I’m at it.

To get on the list of blogging and Tweeting PR pros in Columbus, please send me a note on Twitter, email me or leave a comment below with your name, blog (your own, your company/firm’s blog or any other blog you write for), and your Twitter @. I’ll update this post regularly with the entries I receive, and soon we’ll all have a great resource next time we want to throw a party and invite every online PR person in town.

    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own
    a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or
    anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  • 21 // May 8, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to understand a lot about this, such as
    you wrote the e-book in it or something. I believe that you simply
    can do with some p.c. to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is fantastic blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Hi there! I know this iis kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would yoou be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
