For those of you who have been following this story, Blogrush’s CEO, John Reese, looked into my case and found that my Blogrush account was deactivated because of a typo I made in their system. I am now activated again. On what must be an insane day for him, I appreciate the effort John made to take care of this and I will be putting Blogrush back up shortly. When all of this started I thought this would make a great case study on how social media can backfire on a brand. Now, hopefully for John’s sake, this will make a great case study on blogging crisis management.
It also makes a great case study on how a loud mouth blogger can jump the gun and publish stuff before all of the facts are out. Makes me appreciate journalists like Jayson Blair.
