In this question, What Are Some Interesting Questions That Could Be Used in a Blog Article To Help Promote The Site?, we're compiling a list of interesting questions that could be potential blog topics to help promote the site.

I am a blogger, but I'll be completely honest with you. I am a terrible blogger! For years, mine has gone virtually unnoticed. However, there are many people in the community who manage very active, productive blogs. These individuals have a lot of referral power.

If you're a blogger, or if you know a blogger, who may be interested in picking one of our most interesting questions, blogging about the topic, and then referring the readers to our site, please list them below.

A few ideas:

  1. Invite notable bloggers to weigh in on 'best of' interesting PM questions. "We're not sure how to answer {question link}, do you have any advice?"

  2. Ask PM questions on their behalf. If they write a blog entry or ask something (on their blog, twitter, or facebook) that contains a question -- actual or implied -- post it as a question here. Wait and see what kind of response it gets, then bring it to their attention. "I thought you brought up a really interesting question, and it got some interesting answers here {question link}."

I think it's important to only ping notable folks when you have something of direct interest to them.

  • +1 - Great advice on pinging notable people only with something very interesting. Thank you! – jmort253 Mar 29 '11 at 3:47

I'm no expert, and I'm not a project manager either, but one PM blog I do read (and enjoy) is randsinrepose (Michael Lopp).

(That aside, Google sent me here, but I can't vouch for any of them)

  • @Bengol - Awesome! I'll check these out and see if we can elicit some good questions. – jmort253 Apr 29 '11 at 6:13

One that I read from time to time is Bruce Webster's blog.
