Really good post, and points we have made to clients and prospects time and time again. What we have encountered fairly recently is clients who expect a PR program to generate traffic and buzz immediately without any effort or additional expenditures on their part.

Great post!  A related point: Be resourceful: We're in a sometimes unpredictable business, so always have a plan B, and even C for every project. Also -- invest in the best PR tools, including databases and apps, that enable you to do the busywork more efficiently, so you can concentrate on creative work.

You're only required to link to a post or article if you mention it or quote from it. If you were INSPIRED by it, it would be pretty ridiculous to have to attribute inspiration. Likewise, we'd require network TV shows that are "ripped from the headlines" to attribute their inspiration, too. Won't happen. BTW, just covered the topic on my PR Chicago blog today (no, I hadn't read this post, but I did link to some of the articles).
