    [2011] Three Ways to Make Media More Personal
    MUD day 20: Back in the late 90s or early aughts, one of the hot topics in the Web 1.0 world was personalization. On the industry portal site I ran for much of that time, we had what seems now like a pretty lame concept of personalization. We wanted to let our registered users select their interests from a predetermined set of categories, then present a customized home page when they logged in. We never implemented our plan, but it hardly mattered. The onset of Web 2.0
    [2011] Fear and Social Media Don’t Mix
    MUD day 19: A friend of mine who works for a large nonprofit institution serves on a panel that’s trying to decide what the institution should think and do about social media. Should it encourage its employees and other stakeholders to use social media? Should it restrict what they say and do there? Or should it stay strictly hands off, neither aiding nor impeding social media activities? Cynics might argue that institutions inherently distrust anything they can’t control.

    [2011] The Best Formats Are Invisible
    MUD day 18: It’s a new dawn and I’ve awakened with my usual optimism and generosity of spirit restored. Today I see things a bit differently. Magazines aren’t dying , they’re simply transmigrating. You see, the soul of a magazine is not to be found in its format. LIke every other kind of communication, a magazine is expression, transported in a vehicle. If you pay undue attention to the vehicle, the format, you’ll miss the important thing being expressed.
    [2011] My Love for Magazines Lies Bleeding
    MUD day 17: There are days, perhaps when my inner curmudgeon breaks through my usual resistance, when I’m convinced that magazines, as a useful format, are truly dead. Yes, it may just be me or my desperation for a topic in this month of mandatory daily blogging. Ask me tomorrow and I may feel more hopeful. But what has me worried is my oddly sour reaction to this Folio article on magazine design. A few years ago I would have been vitally interested. Now it just seems irrelevant.
    [2011] Duplicate Content in a Post-Panda World
    November 16th, 2011 - Posted by Dr. Pete. So, I thought it was a good time to cover the topic of duplicate content, as it stands in 2011, in depth. Since Panda (starting in February 2011), the impact of duplicate content has become much more severe in some cases. Just this year (September 2011), Google gave us a new tool for fighting a particular form of near-duplicate content – paginated search results. November 16th, 2011. November 16th, 2011.

    [2011] More on Destination, Identity, and the Future of Content
    Thanks no doubt to a helpful boost from Alexis Madrigal , my November 8 post, “ The Future of Content Is Not Destination but Identity ,” found a passel of new readers this week. One of them was constructively skeptical of my argument. What does it really mean, he asked , to say the future of content is in its identity? Or that content must be imbued with the brand? However people find content, he argued, they “always wind up back at the brand to read it.”

    [2011] Want to Twitter Better? Diversify Your Pronouns
    One of my favorite Joe Pulizzi sayings is “ it’s not about you.” ” For the most part, he’s talking to marketers, trying to get them to focus on the information their customers need rather than what the marketers most want to talk about: themselves. Journalists generally don’t see this as their own problem. After all, their role is to point towards other people. But as a new study suggests, the story is different on Twitter.

    MUD day 13: In an interview in Foreign Policy , published on its website earlier this month, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales was asked if he’s shocked to hear that people, including journalists, “use Wikipedia all the time.” ” His response is worth repeating to any journalist that either uses Wikipedia unthinkingly or unthinkingly refuses to use Wikipedia: Journalists all use Wikipedia.

In a late-1950s Paris Review interview, he was asked what he did to overcome the blank page and start writing an essay. His answer involved yet another approach from Raymond Chandler, previously cited this month as a model by one of my illustrious commenters : Interviewer : Are there any devices you use to get yourself going on [your essays]?

    [2011] Ethics Must Come from the Heart As Well As the Head
    MUD day 11: For anyone interested in the ethics of new-media journalism, the past 24 hours have been painfully instructive. For me, it’s been a reminder that in any ethical decision, you have to be guided by your heart as well as your head. The episode began when, in response to an inquiry by a Columbia Journalism Review reporter, the Poynter Institute’s director of publications, Julie Moos, wrote a blog post criticizing Poynter’s celebrated columnist Jim Romenesko.
    [2011] Social Media and the Clash of Brands
    MUD day 10: On his new blog today, UK journalist Tony Hallett considered a question raised indirectly by my Tuesday post on destination versus identity. His concern was with personal identity versus publication identity, or, if you prefer, personal versus corporate branding.
    [2011] Three Ways to Turbocharge Your New-Media Career
    MUD day 9: For anyone involved in communications, coming to accept new media is only half the battle. The next, much harder fight, is in leaping into and mastering the ways of new media.

    More and more of today’s consumers are turning to social media platforms, particularly Facebook, to both rave about great products or to address customer services issues. Whether positive or negative, what these consumers post is there for everyone to see. These postings influence other consumers and their buying behaviors in a very impactful way. Consumers trust other consumers, not paid ads or gimmicks or obvious sales tactics.

    MUD day 8: There’s been a lot of excitement in the past week about the new Web publication The Verge. Founded by Joshua Topolsky and several other former Engadget staff, it’s been praised for its dynamic design and for features like StoryStream, which aggregates the site’s content into timelines. But if it succeeds, will it be due to great design, or inherently great stories?

    [2011] 3 Traits of Editorial Success
    MUD day 7: Editors should be pleased by Malcolm Gladwell’s review in the latest New Yorker of Walter Isaccson’s Steve Jobs biography. In it, Gladwell argues that Jobs’s peculiar genius was not so much creative in nature as editorial. His sensibility, Gladwell writes, “was editorial, not inventive. His gift lay in taking what was in front of him. and ruthlessly refining it.”
    [2011] Algorithms and Editors Working together is a winning formula

    [2011] One Way the Web Will Change the Book
    MUD day 6: New-media enthusiasts, myself included, sometimes talk as though print is dying. That’s a strategic exaggeration, of course. No form of media is ever killed off by another. Rather, each new form of media transforms those that came before it, sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically. Consider for instance how painting was changed—even liberated—by photography, turning, in response, to new modes of expression like impressionism and cubism.
    [2011] Embrace Your Errors
    MUD day 5: When I embarked on this month of daily, rapidly written blog posts, I knew my tolerance for typos and other errors would be sorely tested. And indeed, yesterday I committed one of the homophonically confused errors I’ve made since the beginning of my publishing career, writing “died-in-the-wool” rather than “dyed.”

    MUD day 4: If you’re a B2B journalist or a journalistically inclined content marketer, you should be faithfully following Steve Buttry’s blog. Although he’s a died-in-the-wool newspaper guy, he deals frequently and insightfully with issues that also plague trade editors and reporters. A good example is from Buttry’s post on Monday, in which he offers advice on attribution. It’s an age-old issue for trade journalists that has only intensified in the online era.
    [2011] Schadenfreude Is Cheap: Don’t Worry About the Journalists of the Future
    MUD day 3: I recently joined the LinkedIn for Journalists group, which turns out to be more useful and interesting than I had expected.

    [2011] A Month of “Um” Days
    As writers go, I am slow and deliberate. Though I don’t often find it, I can spend hours looking for le mot juste. It’s not the ideal approach for a blogger, needless to say. So this month, as I hoard my psychic energies for a major writing and editing project (more about that later), I’ve had to make what is, for me, a difficult decision about this blog. No, this is not a farewell to blogging, or even an announcement of a hiatus.

Whether you’re on a first date, meeting new people at a dinner party, or making it rain on Twitter, it’s just not a good idea to go on and on about yourself. It’s just awkward. Conventional social media marketing wisdom suggests that brands should avoid being overly self-promotional.
    [2011] Should Journalism Schools Rethink Magazines? (Or Even Journalism Itself?)
    Last week, Susan Currie Sivek wrote about how magazine programs within journalism schools are increasingly giving up on traditional magazines—or as she less cynically puts it, how they are teaching beyond the magazine. It’s the right direction for J schools to take. But does it go far enough? Though I love magazines, I’m not sure any journalism school should have a magazine program. For that matter, I’m not even sure any university should have a journalism school. (By

    I went on vacation last month, a pleasant road trip up the Pacific coast to Washington state. I didn’t intend it to be an experiment in social media deprivation, but because I had only a dumb cell phone and the occasional borrowed computer, it turned into one. What did I learn by taking a three-week break from social networks? Well, first, despite my digital savvy, I’m not a social media native. I can function reasonably well when not tweeting or blogging for several weeks.

    As with other business-to-business content creators these days, there are few trade press editors who don’t have—and at least occasionally use—a Twitter account.

Read one such announcement — “reader-friendly, modern, airy, blah blah blah&# — and you’ve read them all. The old look. So, you might ask, why am I writing this?

Alley herself, after all, stands out among young B2B journalists for being well ahead of her peers in adopting the tools and ethos of social media. If anything, the B2B industry needs to encourage early adopters, not bemoan them.
