I get a one or two requests like that every week. I have never accepted. Why would anyone?

My kids used to cry when I sang to them too. But for quite a different reason, I think. #dontgiveupmydayjob

Gini, traditional mainstream news media is on its knees because it can't figure out a paid-for model that works, so don't beat yourself up over a couple of flops. :-)

I'm just catching up with Mad Men now. I'm in the 4th season. The lesson for me is to not to be afraid to take bold steps. Don's 'Why I'm giving up tobacco' open letter is and excellent example. Think big. Take risks.

I love Audible too. It fills my insomniac nights and makes my bus commute bearable. I'm currently reading hard back version of Lean In at your suggestion. Thanks!

@lauraclick @sherrilynne @belllindsay Yes, but I was wrong side of 40 when this happened. Certainly not a girl. More of a hardened business professional, I'd say.

At the risk of repeating myself I hate, hate, hate, hate that gender in the work place is still an issue for discussion in 2013...my mother said it would be different for me. I thought it could be. And it was a bit...I found I could 'have it all'. All the bills, all the work, all the responsibility.
Maybe this lean in movement will make the difference for our daughters and granddaughters. I was shocked a couple a months ago when I arrived at a client event and the head of a government department, a woman with a very responsible job, announced 'Here are the PR Girls'. Me, a mere girl, who according to Bridget Jones, spends the day fannying about with a press release. Who knew?!
Come on people, men and women alike..let's all lean in!
Great minds think alike. I wrote a very similar post the other day about TV news in Canada. http://thornleyfallis.ca/is-the-crtcs-sun-news-decision-good-news/

Everything you say in this post makes perfect sense. I agree with it all. But I do despair that we are still having these conversations in 2013. Back in the 70s they told us things were going to be different for women from now on...how wrong they were. I do hope things will be different for my Granddaughter.

@ginidietrich @sherrilynne Chuffed is good. :-)

Bob was one of the first PR bloggers I ever 'met' online way back in 2006 when I was first living in the Isle of Man. I was chuffed to find such a smart blogger from my own home town. I actually met him two years later at the United Way Ottawa Schmoozefest and we got on like a house on fire. Since I moved back to Ottawa almost two years ago, Bob and I see each other often at industry events and meet ups. He never fails to make me LOL with his rapier wit and I learn something new from every conversation with Bob. Good pick Gini!
Good advice here. Thanks for compiling this list.

Sound like AirPR is to communications professionals what Freelancer.com is to writers. It totally commoditizes talent, skills and experience and drives rates down. Looking forward to your review of this site.
