New Voices: PR Neophytes in the Blogosphere

Over the past few days, I've been delighted to find new posts in the Campaigns folder of my RSS aggregator-- a few of my former students are still at it, even after their grades are in. (You can't see it, but I'm grinning from ear to ear.) I read about Nikki's job search, Allie's thoughts on the Webby awards, and (another) Nikki's reflections on confidence and her new career.

This inspired me to look for and at PR blogs written by students and new practitioners from around the globe. It seems that, like 90% of my Campaigns class, many start but few continue; once they get a job they've got other work, sometimes even other blogs, to consider (Erin and Flackette come to mind).

My picks for the most interesting PR neophyte blogs:
Observations of Public Relations, Luke Armour
Student PR Blog, Chris Clarke
PR Blogger, Stephen Davies
For Budding Public Relations Professionals, Adam Denison
Indian and Global PR -- Student Blog!, Rajiv Harjai
PR Newbie, Jessica Hoffman
Young PR, Paull Young

Add them--along with PR, It Depends, Spinnan, and Beyond the Press Release -- to your RSS aggregator. They've got things to say!

Thank you for the kind words and the list. There were a few blogs which were not in my feeds.

Glad to hear it -- and please let me know if you find any others!
Glad I made the cut and, as Rajiv said, there were some blogs on there I was unaware of. Great resource.
Well, now you all know what a faculty member does during the summer. :)

I'm enjoying reading you and the other newbies now that I've found you. Keep up the good work!
Just saw you linked to my blog. Thanks! How'd you find me?
Hi, Adam! You commented on my student Nikki's blog (Beyond the Press Release) last spring and I followed your link. I've been enjoying your blog and hope you keep it going!
