Blogger McSocialites: McCarthy, McDonald, McEnany, McHale, McLellan

We’ve come a long way profiling the registrants for the upcoming Blogger Social (April 4-6, NYC). And sure, we know that this group is just slightly out of alphabetical order, but the L’s and early M’s are coming soon…promise. This series of profiles was contributed by wonderful blogging colleague C.B. Whittemore.

Caroline McCarthy [not to be confused with Congresswoman McCarthy keeps her ear to the ground and her fingers on the pulse of the world of social media in CNET‘s The Social. There, Caroline manages to keep everyone abreast of the latest and greatest in the Facebooks, MySpaces and Diggs of Web 2.0. Keeping it interesting, she is a downtown Manhattanite who believes that, despite popular opinion, the Web can actually help your social life. Through The Social, you can witness her happy addiction to fun social media tools from Twitter to Yelp to Facebook and text messages…. as she explores all facets of the Web’s gregarious side, as well as the unique tech culture – including its effects on politics – in her home city of New York.

If you’re looking for simple ways to spark new marketing ideas, look no further than Matt J. McDonald’s “A New Marketing” Blog. And, if you’re not sure what to expect, then check out Matt’s “About Me” section… Imagine coming face-to-face – not only with a new marketer – but also a pirate scholar [ahoy, there, matey!], blazer aficionado, bonsai gardener, big picture thinker [yes, definitely goes hand-in-hand with bonsais], and client service ninja! His TED Tuesday series definitely inspires new marketing ideas.

How can you learn more? I’m glad you asked. Matt also has his own Squidoo Lens:

Anyone who names his blog “Hee-Haw Marketing” – after the 70s television show about people wearing over-alls – has to have an irreverent sense of humor! Even more so when you realize that he was awarded the dubious “Greatest advertising human in the world” distinction in 1983 by Bullshit magazine… as a precocious three year-old. Nonetheless, Paul McEnany is a force to be reckoned with from Dallas – as a new media marketing strategist – to Madison Avenue [at The Madison Avenue Journal] and Beyond [at Beyond Madison Avenue].

Paul specializes in participatory media. He has a background in traditional marketing and account planning, and advocates responsible marketing [i.e., in such a way that your brand and company are relevant to your customers!] in his Top 25 marketing blog.

Quick! What comes to mind when you see the online publication “The Madison Avenue Journal”? You’d think that person has to know Madison Avenue. Right? Tim McHale certainly does given his 19-year background in traditional marketing, seven years in interactive marketing and proactive leadership in integrated marketing! To be more specific, Tim was co-founder and Chief Media Officer of Tribal DDB Worldwide, a separate division of DDB Worldwide [Omnicom]. By the way, have you noticed the site’s descriptor? “The AMC-TV Network’s Favorite MAD MEN site in advertising!” No wonder Tim describes himself as a “Media Activist.”

Drew McLellan — co-Blogger Social-conspirator, Age of Conversation co-starter, Mickey Mouse aficionado, Top Dog, Dodgers fan and endlessly creative master marketer — embodies the collision of passion and strategy. From the midst of Iowa, he manages to touch the entire globe as he encourages anyone serious about branding and marketing to conduct authentic love affairs… with customers! He makes it easy, too, with the likes of his 99.3 Random Acts of Marketing book. No wonder that his blog, “Drew’s Marketing Minute”, features prominently on the Top 25!

But that’s not all! In fact, he’s indefatigable! He is already inspiring the blogosphere, with partner Gavin Heaton, to get ready for the 2008 version of The Age of Conversation. And, you can be absolutely sure that he will be fully engaged, along with CK, in making the 2008 Blogger Social a fantastic success! Thanks, Drew!!!
