2012 Favorite Blog Posts
Every year I do a review of my favorite blog posts ... no scientific analysis, just my pick of my favorite topics of the year ... those that put a smile on my face. Here we go, hope you enjoy my list for 2013!
10 - When Marketing & PR Collide: I hosted a really fun roundtable discussion about careers in PR which became a top 10 read for The Holmes Report.
9 - New NFL Uniforms: even professional football players can have body issues!
8 - Middle Age: IMHO, the best piece of advertising of the year.
7 - Ten Things That Make Me Happy: the show from Bravo is a true take on personal branding, just as I write my third book on the topic.
6 - Anti-Aging Jeans: pull your jeans down, take ten years off!
5 - More "Reality" in Advertising: new legislation ensures proper brand communications, and it totally fascinates me.
4 - 9/11, Pay It Backward: a real moment of moments, that put some new meaning behind the day.
3 - Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: they finally "got it right," with the inclusion of Donna Summer.
2 - Should A Brand Have An Opinion?: when a brand makes a political statement, isn't it just targeting?
(drum roll please)
Now for my favorite blog post of the year ... it just might surprise you!
1 - Drugs Over Timeline: one of the most effective uses of Facebook timeline and an example that I constantly reference as the most creative piece of marketing of the year. In fact, my team is probably sick and tired of hearing me talk about it!
