8 Blogs About PR You Must Read
People have been blogging since the ’90s, creating their own platforms in order to share their ideas, views and talk about, well… whatever they want!
You can find a blog on just about anything: fashion, food, travel, fitness, sports, there are even blogs which have the sole intent of pointing you towards other blogs…
While working amidst the forever evolving PR industry, it can be challenging to stay on top of the many dynamics and tools that make up the media environment.
Whether you are a PR professional or an entrepreneur looking to grasp communications for your start-up business, reading expert blogs is a nifty way of staying up to date on the latest news and issues in the industry, as well as expanding on your skills and gaining inspiration.
It can be time-consuming to find specialist blogs that you can rely on to always deliver beneficial articles that will help contribute to your successes; which is why I have researched and compiled some of the best blogs about public relations, that every PR professional, entrepreneur and expert in the industry needs to read.
