But since they didn't e-mail me that's not really relevant. The interesting thing is that 'blog' has become a buzzword. What they are describing doesn't have anything to do with what characterizes a blog. No permalinks, no comments, no reverse chronological list of last updates (because you only get one blog entry). And in marketing speak: When a blog is good, a video blog must be twice as good. It's a load of crap to be honest, but it wouldn't surprise me if they could actually convince some companies to pay up. If I were in charge of a copmany who is interested in a pitch like this (it's not a blog!) I would most likely prefer to either have my own PR department do it, or hire a real PR company to do it. Possibly with hired help for the video shooting. - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
