A quote from Elizabeth Albrycht this morning, reminded me that I might have missed a few folks that, “should have been in the top 50” but weren't.
“I have been trying for nearly three years to encourage women PRs to blog. Its been lonely out here. I am happy to see some new folks carrying the torch!”
Out of curiosity, I went to check the PubSub PR list (30-day tab), and it seems to be fixed since yesterday. In addition to Elizabeth, who is now rightfully listed in the Top 50, Debbie Weil is now at number 4.
Amy Garhan's blogs dropped out of the top 50, but she has been pretty busy lately with her new PAID gig as editor of Poynter’s group weblog E-Media Tidbits. Be sure to check it out.
For your reading pleasure, I have re-listed the female-authored blogs in PR's Top 50, and I have added a little meat, giving you a preview of their most recents posts. (**Updated**) As you can see, there are still only seven in the top 50, which is 14 percent.
While the names might change, the fact still remains, we are small but mighty.
Top Seven Female-Authored PR Blogs**
(4) BlogWrite for CEOs, Debbie Weil *
Debbie tells us that Google accidentally deleted its blog,earlier this week, oops.
(27) Corporate PR,Elizabeth Albrycht
In her most recent post,Elizabeth asks, “Are participatory tools the missing link for persuasive communications?” She has linked to some interesting research that might support that blogs, wikis, podcasts and other tools may help to build the third dimension of credibility: which she argues is goodwill.
(28)Communications Overtones, Kami Huyse
You are reading it here 🙂
(32) WhatsnextBlog, B.L. Ochman
Today B.L., the grande dame of PR blogging, talks about beer and a PR stunt. She received a single cold bottle of Heineken Premiumn Light Beer and an expensive Heineken bottle opener, no glass, in a very interesting case.
(42) KD Paine’s Measurement Blog, Katie Paine
Katie cites research that shows that over the last year, the overall rate that e-mails from publishers (think newsletters) were opened dropped from 36 to 21 percent. Of the ones that were opened, only 4 percent generated a click thru — just about half the rate of a year ago.
(43) New Communications Blogzine, Jennifer McClure, editor
Jennifer is the editor of this blog, which is the official blog of the Society for New Communications Research, a non-profit, global think tank dedicated to the advanced study of emerging modes of communication and their effect on media, business and society. It doesn't look like a regular blog, but it carries many posts from its members every day, many who are well-known bloggers.
