Great blogs

Here are a list of blogs, (in no particular order), which I really enjoy.

Nile Rodgers:  Nile is someone I know today and work with, though I have been an admirer of his work for decades.  As you probably already know, Nile Rodgers co founded  one of the best known funk bands of all time, Chic and he’s worked with many of the biggest names in music, from Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger and David Bowie to Duran Duran, Sister Sledge and Diana Ross!  Now recovering from cancer, Nile is journalling his progress and his story is as inspirational as his music.

Jane C Woods writes the popular Changing People blog. She has appeared in numerous publications, as well as on BBC Radio 4’s flagship women’s programme, Women’s Hour. Jane’s passion is helping women to be the best they can be. She is working toward a target of helping one million women to improve their lives. With a global network of specialist trainers, Jane’s message is now reaching women on 4 continents. Disclosure: I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jane on various projects for 8 years.

Danny Brown: If I had a question regarding PR, I would call Danny.  Danny Brown has 2 attributes that make his blog a great resource.  Firstly, he really knows his subject and shares what he knows very generously.  Secondly, he cares passionately about being open and honest.  He’s also a really nice guy.

Spin Sucks: Gini Dietrich is known to most people, because of her work at Arment Dietrich, using online technology in communication, marketing, and HR.  I know Gini as someone who invests a stack of her time trying to help other people, via social media and her work as the primary author of Spin Sucks.  Gini is also one of the best exponents of using video within blogs to inform and engage people.

Seth Godin’s Blog: I love the way Seth writes. This is not a blog to read if you want tactics or how-to’s, but it’s a useful source of creative ideas.
