I am not 100 percent sure when I first came across Jennifer Mattern's blog Naked PR, but I know that it immediately caught my attention.
Let's just say that she says things in ways that I wouldn't. She is very direct and you immediately know where you stand with her.
Some recent titles on her blog:
- Do You Really Know a Rat's Ass About PR?
- The ‘Why Memes Show I’m Better Than You’ Blog Meme
- My Beef With Twitter
She also says things like:
See what’s been buzzing in the PR blog party recently. You’ll find some interesting Public Relations reads. Then again, you’ll also find some total crap. Judge for yourself.
I don't always agree with her, but I like that she says what she thinks, and in doing so, she helps to reframe the discussion a bit.
There are others who have tried to be this “voice of dissent,” but Jennifer does it considerably better than any other that I know of in the public relations blogging world. Though I must admit, Bill Sledzik comes a close second.
All the rest are just imitators, Jennifer is the real deal.
