Hmm. The celebrated 100th post slipped right by me. Just noticed I’ve done 102 posts since I started in February 2007. We’ll toot the horns at 200.
I’ve given in. I’m beaten. I’ve taken the sex out of Lonely Girl. I tried an experiment and entitled my July 3rd entry Lonely Girl 15: Sex, Mystery and Web 2.0 just to see what would happen. It’s an accurate title and I did get hits, lots of them. Still does. But a lot of them are coming through searches for subjects I don’t even dare mention. Anyway, I want my readers to be those who share my interest in higher ed marketing. I don’t care how popular I am (well, that’s a lie; I care a lot). So I changed the title to Lonely Girl 15: S**, Mystery and Web 2.0. Is that going to solve the s*x deviant problem? If not, I may have to boot her off my blog, lonely or not. I shudder at the thought of how many testosterone-driven teens are disappointed when they hit my post. And if they are getting off on it, we have some major problems with American teen males.
Radio sales reps, to survive, must live in a constant state of denial. A rep was selling me on her station. I said I was thinking twice about radio in the face of iTunes, etc. She said it had not affected the listenership of her station a bit. I knew she had daughters, ages 12 and 15. “Do they have iPods?” I asked.
“Oh, yes. They listen to them all the time.”
“When do they listen to your station?”
She smiled. “When I drive them to school, I make them leave their iPods home and we listen to my station.”
I couldn’t get out of my mind Karine Joly’s post about the study showing the TV-online activity among kids. This has huge implications for marketers.
Found this dichotomy while surfing Podcasting News. Podcast guru Adam Curry’s company Podshow just laid off 1/3 of its workforce. At the same time podcasting network Wizzard Media announced it’s working on the “first international geo-targeted audio podcast advertising campaign.” Tumultuous times.
But the biggest news? There is a podcast dedicated to The Big Lebowski . Dude, that’s awesome . . . .
Scoble Rocks Out: Came across this from a facebook friend. Robert Scoble as rock star. Hilarioius.
What do you do when the most popular DJ in the region goes off on a half hour rant calling you the “worst PR person in the world?”
That’s the subject of my two-part blog next week.
