Cue a considerable number of the UK and US PR community (Antony, Stuart, Simon, Stephen, Constantin, Niall...) who responded by pointing out that there are actually many UK PR blogs. The editor of PR Week then replied and said 'ok, maybe you're right'. In terms of how many UK blogs there are, a definitive(ish) list is here.
I'm not taking sides, but I sometimes wonder if there are enough good PR blogs in the UK. What do you think? Maybe, in a roundabout way, PR Week's editor is right. I'm not saying there aren't many, just there could be more. I'm thinking there could be more good PR agency blogs for a start - there's a lot of agencies that aren't blogging. And maybe there could be more discussion blogs, like Linkbunnies for PR people? I think maybe UK Press should be a blog, so the emails could still come to you through RSSFwd, or you could surf the blog, or use something like bloglines. And I think more of my friends could blog. They'd be great at it. And did you know RocketBoom, the tech videoblog, is making $85,000 in ads a week and has 300,000 daily viewers? I know the PR industry isn't as big at the geek industry but why isn't there a PR industry videoblog? (hmm! :-) I think we've got so much potential, but maybe the problem is that PR agencies are always so busy that there's just no time.
So here's to many more home grown blogs, podcasts and videoblogs for the PR industry.
