The more I re-read the piece the more I think it was just written to give some love to Edelman and their new booklet on blogging. Where was Michele Neylon or Tom Raftery, where was Fergus Burns from Nooked or Eirepreneur James Corbett? I’m not bothered they didn’t mention the blog awards but I am bothered that they didn’t even do a little bit of research into business bloggers in Ireland. There are a few you know.
Mark Cahalane from Edelman was quoted extensively. Hi Mark, I’m guessing you’ll see this blog entry soon enough. Do you have your own blog Mark? Did the Business Post approach you guys or did you approach them for this story?
The SBP piece was inspid, mundane and about 2 years too late. In fact it reads like a template. “Insert name of country this is being published in” and bang it out all over the world. It was irrelevant to Ireland and a downright shame when it could have done a lot of the growing business blogging community.
