Snack On This

Jeremiah Owyang started the latest meme making its way through many of my favorite PR blogs, and Geoff Livingston has tagged me to participate.

The question: How do you respect the media snacker? (Simply stated, a “snacker” is someone who consumes their media in small, digestible portions.)

My answer: By being a media glutton, of course!

A part of my role at CustomScoop involves staying involved in social media, the online PR community in particular, as many of our services may appeal to the PR industry. I devour dozens of PR and marketing blogs each day, and try to boil down the major issues into something rather snack-like.

The result of this gluttony is our daily PR Blog Jots, a sampler of a few posts a day from the PR and marketing blogosphere. I try to choose from a wide variety of blogs and topics, zeroing in on the issues that seem to be either vitally important, thought provoking, or occasionally downright entertaining. Admittedly, I also occasionally cater to what I find most important on a given day, like my frequent drum beating over proper grammar and better writing in PR. Each Friday, we also produce PodJots, a rundown and guide to the PR and marketing podosphere.

For my regular blogs, both here and at the company’s space, I also try to keep my posts concise. Trust me, I could ramble on at great length about just about any topic from transparency in public relations to Britney’s latest crappy weave, but do lengthy blog posts eventually devolve into bloviating? I think so (with some exceptions).

As such, consider your snack served!

I tag Constantin Basturea, because I want him to post. (grin)

  3. It is a fun meme to write about, easy to forget there are some people who just want to nibble on this stuff instead of absorbing every drop of info they can get….Thanks for stopping by!
