AIRtime will be on hiatus while we reprioritize and revamp. You might say we’re getting some R&R! We’ll still be tweeting and chirping (or at least posting ideas, updates and information on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter); please follow us there.

PR colleagues, clients and friends: Take a meme-o!

The latest version of “What My Friends Think I Do …” has us laughing – at ourselves.

Sharing inspiration

It’s been busy here at Ritz Communications Worldwide HQ … exciting announcements, new business pitches and the culmination of months of pro bono work today as TEDxMidwest kicks off in Chicago.

While there are lots of fascinating things to blog about, time has been a precious commodity. So today, I thought I would share some of the bloggers who inspire me. … and I’d love to hear from you about some of your favorite bloggers.

If you haven’t had a chance to check them out, my very favorites include:

  • For great ideas on … great ideas, check out bestselling author and entrepreneur Seth Godin’s straightforward, insightful, entertaining blog; you can read it at http://sethgodin.typepad.com/.
  • Peter Bregman writes about leadership, talent and lots of other interesting topics in a personal way and an accessible voice. He – and a lot of other great writers and thought leaders – blog for Harvard Business Review at http://blogs.hbr.org/.
  • Okay, I’m not quite sure if a daily email counts, but I always stop to read updates from http://www.techlicious.com. It makes me feel a little savvier about what gadgets I just have to have and how to use them!
  • Andy Crestodina, co-founder of Orbit Media, blogs for The Orbiter at http://www.orbitmedia.com/blog/. He offers a lot of useful information – and inspiration – on web marketing strategy.
  • “Yes & Know” by Nilofer Merchant focuses on culture, innovation, and strategy in the Social Era. You can read it at http://nilofermerchant.com/blog/.
  • Last, but definitely not least, the PR professional in me is a big fan of 6 a.m. (http://www.edelman.com/conversations/6-a-m/) by Richard Edelman, president & CEO of Edelman. Full of great insights and lessons, it’s inspiring and informative. His most recent blog in particular, http://www.edelman.com/p/6-a-m/the-new-look-of-public-relations-a-dissenting-view/, is a great discussion of the future of PR.
