Lunchtime Blogging Presentation by Charlene Li

    March 10, 2005

Forrester analyst and blogger Charlene Li spoke to a packed room of marketing, PR, and other interested folks today at Yahoo.

Her hour-long talk covered many aspects of blogging, corporate marketing, PR, and what she believes Yahoo can do.

Luckily, she was able to skip most of the intro material since blogs really aren’t new to Yahoo at this point. Instead she focused on what works, what doesn’t, and how blogging is a mindset–not a technology. Amen to that!

I was glad to hear that she likes what we’re doing with the Yahoo! Search blog and the new YSDN blog. Once of her recommendations to us was… get this: more blogs!

I don’t think that surprised anybody. But it’s always good to hear it from the outside.

Of course, she used me as an example a few times. I kind of expected that. :-)
