Those who work with and know me understand just how much I love my job in public relations. It’s also exciting that our firm – McNeil Wilson Communications – is embracing social media and allowing us to explore ways to incorporate it into our daily work flow. PR and social media are two things I’m really into right now. So you can imagine how excited I was when I received this e-mail today from Alltop.com:

Nathan,

Spoke to Guy and he helped make it happen! PR.Alltop.com is now open thanks to you! Additionally, I added your company’s website to the Acknowledgments.

It would be awesome if you could tell everyone locally, but also PR Newswire 🙂 Because of you, there is a PR category. We appreciate you very much.

Aloha,
NEENZ.

UNREAL! I had pitched the idea of creating a PR Alltop category via Twitter to Guy Kawasaki (@guykawasaki) and Neenz (@infinitypro) and they said, “show me the feeds and we’ll consider.” I guess I did good by sending more than 40 of my favorite PR websites and blogs that I follow on a regular basis to get the ball rolling. Now the category has come to fruition which is a good thing for our industry. I’ll call this my contribution to advancing the public relations profession. Part of the mission being a member of PRSA.

BTW, did I mention Alltop received more than 1.2 million page views last month? This site is big time. If anyone has a PR focused blog or website they’d like to add, send your feeds to info@alltop.com.

Big mahalo to Guy and Neenz! You guys rock!

Do you Twitter?

Those familiar with Twitter can probably relate to the video below. If not used carefully, “tweeting” can get out of hand and possibly make you lose your mind. Hopefully I’ll never be this bad. But hey, while I’m on the subject “follow me” on Twitter…if you dare!

I confess I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to figure out the whole  Web 2.0/social media thing lately and I suspect Ensen may have been watching me. Between blogging here and fussing around on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, and you name it (check out our Contact Us/Social Networking page for all the places you can find us online), I’m amazed at what the little guy is picking up. Ensen’s already obsessed with my laptop and banging on the keyboard. I guess it’s safe to say he’s daddy’s boy and what I’m calling the face of Web 8.0.
