UK’s top 10 PR blogs

Cision has updated its list of the UK’s top 10 public relations blogs with this little old blog coming in at fourth place:

1. NevilleHobson.com

2. Drew B’s take on tech PR

3. Wadds’ PR and Media blog

4. A PR Guy’s Musings – Stuart Bruce

5. PR STUDIES

6. PR Media Blog

7. The Red Rocket

8. Mediations

9. SimonWakeman

10. iangreen.com

What’s most striking to me about the list is the personal and/or echo chamber effect. I know nine out of the ten people behind the blogs. And all bar one I know via social media, but have also met in ‘real life’.

Another interesting fact is that three of the top ten are very old hands in social media and were all speakers at the UK’s very first public relations social media conference back in November 2005. The conference was the brain child of Philip Young, author of Mediations and both myself and Neville Hobson were speakers.
