Other people’s blogs 

In the last week and a bit, while tidying up the layout of this , I had a chance to revisit my blogroll. I’m still hesitant to put personal links there (there are many, like Jack’s Lounge and The Queer Chef), so that could be something for a separate page. However, of the ones directly related to my work, there are some new blogs that deserve attention.
   Neill Archer Roan was kind enough to write some very nice things about me today at his blog, and that does mean he occupies a bit more share of mind this afternoon. I discovered Neill’s blog not too long ago, around the same time I discovered Citizen of the Month, run by a Neil with one l. I got the two gentlemen confused and even bugged Neill about a post I made on the latter blog. (It was about Jacqueline Bisset, and that is worth bugging someone about.)
   It wasn’t Neill’s patience with me that marks him out, or the flattering post, but that his blog is one of the clearest and most well thought out and sites out there. Too many of these sites are full of wank, and Neill’s isn’t. He manages to get into pretty deep issues without labouring them with jargon.
   I had no hesitation in “Favoriting” his site at .
   One Plus One Equals Three, Tom Peters and BrandTarot Blog are the other additions. The first is an site discussing , which gives me greater perspective about that market. I still cover the scene for Desktop magazine, specifically on typography, and these guys always seem to find the latest gems.
   ’ site needs no introduction, but I had no idea the guy had turned it into a blog. Shows how long since I last visited it. And Tom does blog on there, which is just as well—if he’s good enough to turn out some great books, he should be sharing some of his wisdom on a regular basis. Most of the posts are on strategy and on some larger national issues, in which our work takes place.
   Finally, John Grant’s BrandTarot Blog has a bit more of a bent, which I enjoy. No one can predict the , though it doesn’t stop us from trying. And I love reading about someone else’s insight into new and the future of . The reality is always somewhere been the most whacky and the conservative. A bit like the weather.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
