Off topic but it needs to be said. The other day I received the following email from a PR genius:
“Is there an e-mail address I can reach you at for PR purposes?”
I know the person who runs the office from which this came. I suggested he takes said genius out the back and thrash them soundly with a cluestick. You know who you are
Today I received another:
“I was wondering whether you already had an editorial calendar or feature list for 2008. If so could you please forward it to me so that I can distribute it”
For this I solicited help from my Twitter network. (All first links are Tweets so the rest of you geniuses know who else not to irritate)
I only want two kinds of email: those from people I know, and those from people who have taken the time to find out what I’m interested in and composed a note meant to appeal to that (I love those emails; indeed, that’s why my email address is public).
Craig at SAP suggested:
2008 I plan to blog
Fellow Irregular and ZDNet contributor Mike Krigsman suggested:
Dear PR Lady: Unlike magazines, bloggers have no editorial calendar. Did you know I write a blog? Maybe take a look.
Ric Hayman from Australia suggested:
Yes…and nowt else
Don’t you just love the blogosphere? Speaking of which, I fully appreciate why Strumpette gets royally ticked off with the PR industry.
I have a feeling this post might get more updates…
