LinkedIn, Solo PR Blogs, Content Aggregation, & More

During the April 13 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros discussed the importance of a LinkedIn photo, solo PR blogging tips, blog design preferences, and balancing aggregated content, third party content, and original content all in one blog. The following questions were addressed:

1. Is it important to have a photo on LinkedIn?

2. Do you blog to promote your solo practice? If so, what tips can you share?

3. What style of blog design do you prefer? Likes/dislikes as a reader?

4. So many panels at #sxswi addressed aggregating content, 3rd party content and original content. How to balance all in one blog?
