Just read on Mack Collier’s blog that, as of yesterday, the Blog Council was formed. It it’s going to involve executives and bloggers at larger companies to talk the talk about best practices re corporate blogging. It’s needed. And it shows that they seriously value blogging.
This is how they describe themselves:
The Blog Council is a community for official corporate blogs and bloggers that represent major global corporations.
Our mission is to address the unique needs of blogging in a corporate environment.
The Blog Council exists as a forum for executives to meet, share tactics and advice, and develop best practices. In its public role, the organization acts as a strong advocate in support of responsible, ethics-based corporate blogging.
Now this group is limited to ‘large’ corporations. That’s something that could end up being elitist. Or it could end up being something that trickles down. Only time will tell.
