ginidietrich Yes! So tired of being asked for these--useless! Thanks for a great post and a fantastic year of quality blogging, Gini.
Bless you for saying this: "Gone are the days of media impressions and advertising equivalencies."
ginidietrich That's one reason I don't blog everyday (rationalization alert!): I don't want to wear people out, so to speak. So far so good--site visits continue to grow at a reasonable pace and business is good. Have a great week!

I try to do on e-newsletter a month, but seem to have more luck with getting people to sign up to Feedburner--those people hear from me at least 3 times a week, every time I do a new blog post. Coincidentally, i just did a blog post about getting signed up for my e-newsletter. Go figure.
I learned a new word today!

Agreed. Wrote about something similar on my PR blog last year--if you crave the spotlight then you're in the wrong line of work. http://www.alexgpr.com/2010/03/its-not-about-you/

Good post. As I tell my clients: use the tools, don't let the tools use you. http://www.alexgpr.com/2011/04/social-media-tools/
As for the royal wedding: I'll say nothing. People get mad when I give my opinion about that one!

I see sweeping generalizations like that and just say (in my usual verbose fashion) "What-ev."

Thanks for sparing us the horrendous experience of seeing you unshowered. :-) Good post--I have to admit I have never heard the term "overservicing" though I have certainly done it with several clients. (Okay. That sounded odd. Anyway.)

Nice distinctions. Client education is so important--I call it managing expectations. I take pains to explain what our strategy and tactics will do for them--though I'm not always successful at explaining it in a way that sticks. I'm a work in progress on that.
Happy St. Patty's Day!
