One thing I (Alison, that is) love about the impending New Year is the litany of lists I get on various topics. Since you all know me, you know my favorites revolve around “Biggest Celebrity Scandals,” “Top Craziest Housewives,” and “Best Celebrity Slim Downs” of 2010.

But, I do like my public relations-related lists too! I came across this one from PR Breakfast Club listing the Top 10 PR Resolutions for 2011. It caught my eye for resolution number one – “Keep it Clean.” The desk, that is. I had to laugh because I recently cleaned my desk for the first time in two years, and it took me a couple of hours! It is amazing the things we keep, even with computer storage at our disposal.

I also loved their resolution to cut out “Canned Meat.” This one made me think of Fox 10’s Keith Yaskin, whose favorite social media activity seems to be Tweeting about PR people sending him silly, automated pitches.

I also came across the Facebook Blog’s “Top Status Trends of the Year” and realized that I am getting old.

Why, you ask?

Because status trend number one was “HMU.” Being egotistical and vain, I assumed they meant HMA and simply spelled it wrong. But turns out, this means “Hit Me Up,” a phrase I don’t think I have ever used, abbreviated or not. Reminded my of when I had to tell my mother what LOL meant, laughing at her age.

So, since I have such a love for lists, what are your favorites so far? Post links below for everyone to check out. Thanks!

    OK, so I like PRGN’s survey (listed below), but my pal Michael Fineman (Fineman PR in San Francisco) also did a great list of top PR blunders for 2010. Check it out below:
