My friends agree that one thing I do well is wander aimlessly. They also say I could stay in my condo for days on end and never leave. That’s why I seem so well suited for the Internet. . . .
Recently I followed a link from a well-stated comment by a man named Tom O’Leary back to his site, Messaging Times. I knew some folks here would want to know about this blog as soon as I saw it. Still I thought I’d check it out for a few posts. I’ve been reading it now for a while. It’s time I shared my secret.
Great Find: The Messaging Times by Tom O’Leary
Type of Blog: Online Communication and Email Marketing
Target Audience: Bloggers who do business online or by email
Content: I first caught up with Tom O’Leary reading a comment on Tom Peter’s blog. When I followed him home, the post for the 2006 Email Marketing Benchmark Guide was on his front page. I decided to poke around a bit. This blog takes online and email communications seriously. Mr. O’Leary tries and tests things in the tradition of a true marketer, and he encourages his readers to do the same. You can almost hear him saying, “Testing, constantly testing,” into a microphone. You can also tell that this is his passion.
His posts are targeted, well-written, and show that there is experience behind the words. This screenshot of some recent posts shows that he discusses topics that don’t often find their way onto the casual marketing blog. This man knows his business and is glad to share what he knows about it.
If you use email or online to promote yourself or your business, or you ever plan on doing so, bookmark this blog. There’s just so many reasons to do so and no reason not to.
