We recently had three movers in the FG Blogroll. Given that this might affect their positions in the Power150 and PowerPR index (yes, I’m still working on it), here are the changes:
- IndiaPRBlog has moved from http://indiapr.blogspot.com/ to http://www.indiaprblog.com/. This blog consistently comes up with good, useful information and comment, proving that PR lessons can be learnt from any source regardless of geography.
- Barbara Rozgonyi has fled the WordPress platform to www.barbararozgonyi-wiredprworks.com. I wonder if this is anything to do with the little contretemps she had with them a while back? If so then I’m sure she’s made the right decision – update your blogrolls please.
- Finally – and I’m not the first to report on this – TWL has not only moved but had a distinct facelift, from http://theworldsleading.blogspot.com/ to http://www.theworldsleading.net/. It’s an extremely original look and I’m sure it hasn’t just come about as a ‘nice to have’ – to me, this signals some real statement of intent about TWL’s plans to become a reference blog, not least with the mini-ads for jobs and services and the fact that TWL employed a design agency for the new look. It’s a welcome change and proof that PR blogs are becoming more sophisticated.
It’s interesting to note that all the moves are away from blog platforms to unique URLs. Could this be a trend? If so it implies to me a greater permanence and independence in the PR blogosphere. This could be an interesting tie-in with the recent indication that PR blogging is declining in quantity – which could almost imply an increase in quality.
If/when I finally get the latest PowerPR table out I shall be basically adding up all the metrics to give an overall ‘PowerPR index’, from when it will be interesting to see, like the FTSE, how the blogosphere is doing – is it expanding or contracting and if so, at what rate?
