I am currently working on an assignment for my social media class that entails finding three blogs that are related to my career field and are written by actual professionals in the field. The portion of the assignment I am working on now is to post my own entry about the material posted on one of these blogs; however, so that I don’t forget these awesome sites, I wanted to write about all three of the blogs.
The first of the three is a blog by Altimeter Group analyst, Brian Solis. As one of the leaders in the PR industry, Solis blogs about all of the latest trends in social media, marketing, business and public relations, as well as social issues. His posts are inspiring and serve as professional motivation. Get inspired! http://www.briansolis.com/
The second blog I found and loved is by PR guru, Dave Fleet, who works as the Vice President of Digital in Edelman’s office in Toronto. He blogs about everything to do with the field of communication, specifically PR and social media. He offers great tips for how to utilize social media, as well as tips for pitching ideas to prospective clients. Check it out! http://davefleet.com/
And last, but certainly not least, is my newest PR buddy, Lauren Gray. A senior public relations and marketing student here at WCU, Gray serves as a leader in the communication department and an example to us all. The name of her blog, Social PR Lifestyle, says it all because this girl is truly a social media expert! Go to Lauren’s blog at http://laurenkgray.com/my-blog/
