Now I trust you are going to have that catchy dance tune circa 1990 stuck in your head after this.
I’ve been tagged by fellow social media blog aficianado Michael Brito for the Blogs That Make You Go Hmmmm meme. An honor!
OK, here’s my 5. If YOU’RE on this list, consider yourself TAGGED. (If you’re in Korea, you’re tagged upon arrival back home, he he.)
Jordan Behan’s marketing blog does a great job of blending fun commentary on social media and Web 2.0 with stories of his family and friends, bringing a human face to his Vancouver based company’s feed.
I first came across Kate when I discovered her amazingly successful Squidoo lens on laptop bags. When I found out she was a fellow VanCity loc I dropped her a line. After discovering her blog on Jordan’s blogroll, and then her name in the Barcamp Vancouver Facebook Group, I am now planning to tap her on the shoulder at this August’s Barcamp 🙂
Kate blogs about branding, e-marketing, reading, blogging, user experience design, ritual theory, information design, information architecture, new technology.
Now since we’re on the theme of retro hits, I can’t help but confess I’m humming “My Name Is Kate, and I am Funky” (well her laptop case lens sure is).
3. Blogging Me, Blogging You (Are these all going to sound like songs?)
British import Ed Lee blogs about Social Media and PR. And my favourite thing about his blog is it’s visual. From social media bingo to Great White North beer commercials, Ed’s got the blog when you need some educational entertainment.
Well, with a name like Craphammer, it’s gotta be good. But seriously, Sean the Ultimate Frisbee warrior, much like Ed Lee, highlights his social media insight with video, photos and humour. Think, LOL, Think, LOL, Repeat.
BuzzCanuck is pretty much THE Canadian marketing blog. Sean Moffitt publishes beefy pieces on how the big brands are using social media. Always a good read.
DISCLAIMER: The fact that these blogs are all Canadian is purely coincidental.
