If you were listening solely to the Association of National Advertisers’ (ANA) blogs you’d think nothing of interest had happened since mid-September. One was last updated Sept. 14, the other Sept. 22. The blogs, penned by ANA head Bob Liodice and government relations guru Dan Jaffe, launched to great public fanfare (subscription) last year, as part of PR firm CooperKatz’ blog practice (which is headed by super-blogger Steve Rubel). When I surfed over there yesterday, to get the organization’s take on the FCC regulations that will affect the Web sites of children’s broadcasters, all was silent. C’mon guys… let’s keep that conversation going.
To be fair, I should mention the ANA also launched a blog specific to its annual conference that was updated more recently… on October 9.
UPDATE: Well, that was fast. Let no one say CooperKatz and the ANA aren’t listening to blogs.
