Born to blog: Introducing several new bloggers for PMQ.com

Bruce Irving of Smart Pizza Marketing and Milvian Prieto of NJ Pizza Girls have joined the PMQ ranks of expert bloggers.



 

I’ve never been a blogger. Blogging calls for brevity, and I’m a long-winded son of a gun. I struggle every month to keep this column under 400 words, because I’m certain everything I write is brilliant and not to be whittled down or trifled with. Fortunately, I’ve managed to round up some folks who were born to blog about pizza marketing and the pizza world in general. If you haven’t read our current crop of bloggers at PMQ.com, including two brand-new ones, you’re missing out:

1. Andy Knef—PMQ’s associate editor writes the Pizza Perspective blog, and his perspective is, admittedly, a little skewed. Andy keeps things light and funny, commenting on everything from his travels with the U.S. Pizza Team to Kristen Stewart’s Totino’s-inspired makeout session with Vanessa Bayer on Saturday Night Live. Get a peek inside Andy’s mind at pizzaperspective.pmq.com.

2. Bruce Irving—The man behind the Smart Pizza Marketing podcast now produces a blog by the same name for us. Bruce has been knocking it out of the park on topics such as social media trends, handling negative reviews and email vs. direct mail marketing. When space allows, we’ll run some of Bruce’s content here in these very pages—it’s really good stuff. Start reading and learning at smartpizzamarketing.pmq.com.

3. Missy Green—Our international correspondent travels the globe in search of good pizza and even better pizza stories on the Pizza Without Borders blog. She recently judged a Swedish pizza competition in Stockholm and does a terrific job of reporting on overseas trends from Shanghai to Paris, all with her trademark wit and insider’s knowledge. Read her insights at pizzawithoutborders.pmq.com.

4. Milvian Prieto—Milvian is one of the sharp, young minds behind the popular NJ Pizza Girls Instagram account. These pizza-savvy young ladies have become a familiar sight at pizzerias around the Garden State, snapping pics of their favorite pies and spreading goodwill everywhere they go. As of press time, Milvian has written only two blogs for us—including a mini-profile of Anthony Saporito, co-owner of Urban Fire in Madison, New Jersey—but that just means we’ve got a lot to look forward to! Start following her adventures at njpizzagirls.pmq.com.

In fact, I hope you’ll start following all of our talented bloggers. They’re working hard so I don’t have to, and God bless ‘em for that!
