Publicity Queen Blog Nominated for Australia’s Best Blog

Best Australian Blogs 2011 
It is with great pride that I share with you, the faithful readers of the Publicity Queen blog, that we have been nominated for the Sydney Writers’ Centre’s Best Australian Blogs for 2011.

The competition is the brainchild of that digital dynamo, Valerie Khoo, whom many of you I am sure have already heard of, and who was interviewed in the Meet the Media segment of our e-newsletter, Queentessentials, back in March.  In case you missed it (shock, horror!) you can still read our chat with Valerie, who has built an enviable reputation as a blogger, writer, columnist and business mentor, here.

This is not the first time that Publicity Queen’s blog has been recognised – we were also listed in the Top 50 Australian Marketing Pioneer Blogs back in 2008.  Perhaps now we have evolved from a pioneering blog into a veteran blog?  Before I get distracted by thinking about about how old that makes me feel, can I tell you that I find this blogging medium to be such an immediate and powerful tool to communicate with the blogosphere, sharing my thoughts and insights with you all, and learning so much at the same time. 

I would like to congratulate Valerie on this stellar initiative which seeks to reward and draw attention to best-practice in blogging in Australia, and in doing so, hopefully encourage those who are in business who are not yet blogging to take the plunge.

Just in case you are not yet sold on the power and importance of blogging, let me borrow a few words from our friends at Bloomberg BusinessWeek, who wrote on this very subject recently, and from their blog entry entitled Social Media Will Change Your Business, I quote: ” It doesn’t matter whether you’re shipping paper clips, pork bellies, or videos of Britney in a bikini, blogs are a phenomenon that you cannot ignore, postpone, or delegate…blogs are not a business elective. They’re a prerequisite.”

When you log on to the competition website, there is all kinds of helpful and supportive content there on how to get started, how to embed exciting content, and how to grow your readership.

Entries for the competition close on 15 April 2011, so it is not too late to get your entries in.  Best of luck!
