Blogger Resources

2 02 2010

As a newbie to the blogosphere, I’m thirsty for new ideas, trends and hopefully helpful tips on how to make this a success and meet others doing the same.

The Blogger Black Book looks like a great site for getting into the Blog realm. My company is hosting its annual domestic trade show in September and we are trying to incorporate a ‘blogger track’ to our educational seminars. We are finding this EXTREMELY difficult, as weeding through the blogs that are simply Joe Shmoe in his kitchen talking about his recent trip to Paris vs. blogs that are geared toward giving others travel tips, guides and write about destinations from a more outside perspective.  This Black Book not only has the option of purchasing blogger lists for PR professionals but allows bloggers to add themselves to their lists to start getting press releases and other ideas.

The other question is in pitching ideas to bloggers. Most bloggers don’t want to start receiving a ton of e-mails from companies and organizations they don’t care about begging to be in their blog — but how else are we (the PR side) supposed to get blogged about?

What do you think? Have you heard of them? How do you find bloggers?

Laura–thanks for the post. I hope you don’t mind if I leave a comment here, but I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about the service. Your company is on the right track, and it is tough to stay in touch with these bloggers.

Even if there weren’t hundreds more coming online each day, finding the *right* one would be a challenge.

Megan, thanks! Unfortunately we are a small (and getting smaller) association with an ever-shrinking budget. Our communications team is just my boss and I! Our CEO has just started a blog (well, I started it for him…) — is this something that would work to go on your list?
