    Look forward to watching your videos on PR.

    Two other video formats you might like to look at are (1) Al and Laura Ries over at – they use a slide show as their background and (2) Perry Belcher at who uses a white board as his background.

    Back 3-4 years ago when I was thinking of how the Net was changing public relations – that people/organizations didn’t need to go through us ink-stained journalism types to communicate with the public, they could do so directly – I did some Google searches for information just like what you’re providing – and found darn little. (Also searched Amazon, etc.)
    If I had found you and your efforts back then, who knows – at the least I would have become a fan;-)
    It’s funny that, about 2 weeks after creating a Facebook page and Twitter feed for our TV station, a friend’s link on front of my personal Facebook page led me here. I’ll have to get this book!
    And weigh in here a bunch, if you don’t mind. Great minds think alike – and so do ours, it would appear;-)
    Best regards,

    Hi Barney & Alan,

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.

    Alan – I really appreciate the tips on the videos. I’ll have to check out the other formats. I’m a pretty big fan of Al and Laura Ries 🙂 I really enjoy video blogging and hope to do a lot more. As a matter of fact, I just finished another vlog that I’m editing and will post soon. It’s on my “10 must click PR 2.0 websites.” Thanks again for commenting!

    Barney – I’m glad you found me and I would love for you to weigh in and share frequently. I, too, believe that great minds think alike!! PR 2.0 and social media communication has been years in the making. My co-author, Brian Solis started about 10 years ago. I got my first foray into new PR in 2004. In any case, there’s lots of interesting discussion going on about Putting the Public Back in Public Relations and it’s such an exciting time for communications professionals. For the first time, through social media, I feel that we are truly able to communicate to the public one-on-one through direct conversations. The broadcast messaging of the past is gone and brands will be building stronger relationships with stakeholders. I look forward to many discussions with you!!
