Lip-Sticking has a good interview with ProBlogger Tris Hussey from Larix Consulting. In it he speaks a little about the Professional Bloggers Association which I’d been wondering about as it’s been very quiet of late after it’s initial burst of publicity. Is it just another one of those good ideas that bloggers have that goes no where or will something come of it? Tris writes:
‘The PBA went on a bit of hiatus. We all had great ideas, great plans, and then realized—wait, we’re really, really busy people spread out all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe! So, Paul (our most illustrious leader) has committed to getting it going again. I think the summer will be a great time to do this. Hopefully the lazy, hazy days of summer will bring it out of hiatus.
What to expect? Expect that we’re really going to hit the blogosphere with cool stuff. We’ve got some of the sharpest minds going in the core group. Unfortunately, we’re also some of the busiest minds. I want to promote professional blogging as a career, work on the value proposition for businesses, and serve as a group that can give fair and unbiased reviews of new tools and technologies. Not to mention have the coolest blog in town. Come on, with our talent pool, one post a week from the likes of Steve Rubel, Amy Garhan, Toby Bloomberg, you Jane, and many, many others. That’s draw enough!’
Looking forward to see what emerges.
