    The thing that’s most interesting to me is that the larger companies are typically the companies that do a terrible job of blogging. They lack transparency, authenticity and even traffic on their blogs.
    Seems like a really dumb move if you ask me. “Let’s get everyone in the room that does a terrible job at something, so that we can ‘council’ the world on how to do it right?”

    Douglas –
    Some big companies have good bloggers, some are awful.
    Before you judge, take a closer look at who’s involved and what they write. There are some really great blogs here … and some of the best bloggers.
    Blog Council members are pioneering corporate blogging and they are fantastic at it. Sometimes they have to do it against strong internal opposition in a company that doesn’t get it.
    We should support their efforts to promote openness and transparency, and help them teach other companies to do the same.
