Bloggers with little or no access to PR folks — here’s your chance. Chris Anderson, EIC of Wired, is pissed off at a bunch of marketing folks who keep bombarding him with emails that have little if anything to do with his day-to-day job as “guy who thinks up overwrought memes.” As payback, he trapped a bunch of releases and banned their senders and posted their email addresses on his blog. How can you use this to your advantage? Mass email these folks and tell them about your blog. You’ll either get silence or they’ll stick you on their PR list just to be done with you. One man’s trash is another man’s comfortably full inbox.
