For my class we are to comment on peer PR blogs and also professional blogs. Of all the ones I follow, I do have my favorites. It was hard to choose but after much deliberation I have finally come to a conclusion. And the results are:
PR professional blog: nyc PR girls
PR peer blog: PRestigious by Taylor Flumerfelt
These two blogs are completely different. Not only because one is a professional and one is a student blog, but the voice and theme are on different sides of the spectrum. I enjoy the perspectives and tones of each though. Here’s why!
nyc PR girls. I have been following nyc PR girls for about 2 years now. I can always count on this blog to be fun, flashy and filled with quick PR tips. Since the writers are relatively younger, they give great advice for internship hunters and first job timers from a perspective that isn’t condescending but from a “I’ve been there” standpoint. And while it is written professionally, the voice has quite the edge to it. They are not afraid to be blunt. They are city girls writing aren’t they? Here is a great way to navigate their site: nyc PR girl’s guide.
PRestigious. Taylor is one of my great college friends and aspiring successful PR professionals. She has so many responsibilities and what I love about her so much is that she handles all of them so well and gives 110% effort. And it pays off. Her blog is filled with great finds of PR professional articles and the latest tips on what she is currently reading about public relations. Her tone is very professional and reflects her seriousness and passion for the field. It’s encouraging to see a peer so serious about their future career as Taylor; and her blog is an outlet to which she releases that.
Thank you both for teaching me so much through blogging! I truly have learned so much in the time that I have followed each blog. I will continue to follow in the days to come. It’s been a great semester learning all I can about PR. There is truly so much out there.
