The latest list of Vuelio’s top ten PR blogs in the UK published on April 13 has a few changes, notably in the top spot.
The number 1 slot is now occupied by Stephen Waddington, displacing yours truly (that’s me) from that position after four consecutive years. I’m now in the number 2 position that had been held by Wadds for much of that period.
Wadds deserves the top ranking as he consistently and frequently writes and publishes great content on his blog that addresses and discusses issues, events and more focused on the business and practice of public relations. If you want keen and actionable insights into PR, Wadds’ blog is the place to get it (subscribe).
For my part, PR is a strong interest area but no longer the prominent one that I write about. Especially since I joined IBM at the beginning of the year, my interests have become stronger in areas I’ve always been keen on – such as artificial intelligence (IBM Watson in particular), machine learning and related topics – but now mostly to do with trends, impacts and effects on organizations, people and behaviours rather than purely on communication and communicators.
Plus, the volume and frequency of what I post to this blog has decreased markedly over the past three months, which undoubtedly has an impact on things like a blog ranking.
Here’s the list:
