Perhaps Not as Historic as The Beatles’ 50th Anniversary …

By Edward M. Bury, APR (aka The PRDude)

appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” The PRDude is proud to announce that this marks the 200th post of this blog devoted to “The Lighter Side of Public Relations, Marketing & Communications (And Other Stuff).

Two hundredWhere to begin with some thoughts on this (seemingly) momentous occasion?

With Attributions. Many thanks to those who have taken the time to view my blog, which has acc0unted for 10,190 views as of today and 254 comments.  And, of course, a big shout out to the nice people at WordPress (whom I’ve never met) but provide this way cool open source platform.

On to Highlights. As a world-famous — at least in my own mind — Cutthroat twoblogger, I think every post is special.  But some are “more special” than others, most notably these two from 2013:  The July 13 post announcing my awesome new job (most single day visits at 115), and this one where I bashed the forthcoming “Cutthroat Kitchen” TV show, (585 views and counting.)

And, Some Favorites.  This blog was started way back in 2009, but I’ll share some recent posts that still catch my fancy.

In 2013,  I continued with an ongoing series of Q and A posts from friends and leaders from public relations and the communications industry:  Thoughts from a friend and colleague who transitioned from PR to real estate sales, insight from a leading expert on communicating to the Hispanic market, and the career and business perspectives of a successful independent PR pro.

And, I am fond of this February 2013 post on how PR can be employed to address falling space rocks, a June post on life values I learned by watching the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup, and a December blog inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang.

Clearly, I don’t always blog about public relations, marketing or communications.  “Other stuff” can certainly be intriguing.

Nice round numbers — like 50 and 200 — offer natural reasons to reflect and analyze.  And, I could go further, but I’ll wait until the next milestone.

Lots of analysis preceded The Beatles’ half-century anniversary appearance on American television, and deservedly so.  One could say the lads from Liverpool most assuredly got “some good PR.”
