My newest gig in B2B

I've been so busy of late that I haven't had the time to share some exciting news about my career.
Access Intelligence has asked me to write the B2B boxscores column for the MIN B2B newsletter. If you're not familiar with the boxscores, you should be. Each week the newsletter analyzes advertising trends at trade publications. And if I do my job correctly, that analysis will be both insightful and fun to read.
I'm thrilled to death by the deal, and I filed my first column last week. However, MIN B2B is a paid-subscription product. So I won't be linking to my column from this blog. If you're interested, you can subscribe to MIN by clicking here.

(NOTE: Fans of Steve Smith have nothing to fear. Steve's new-media boxscores column will continue to appear in MIN B2B. I'll be writing the print boxscores only. And fans of this blog have nothing to worry about either. Although no one pays me to write this thing, I couldn't stop it even if I wanted's too much fun.)

    Why should anyone care, Paul?
    You where a 'train wreck' @, abz and primedia. Frankly, if you fell off the face of your 'flat' journalistic world, like the proverbial tree in the forest. Who would hear it? Right nobody!! You are a simple fool, really.

  2. Anonymous,
    Judging by the angry tone of your comment, I’d guess you’re one of the handful of editors I fired for incompetence at About/ABZ/Primedia.
    And judging by the content of your comment – one misspelled word, three clich├ęs, a mixed metaphor, one punctuation error and an unattributed personal attack, all in just 46 words – I’d say that firing you was the right move.
