During my time as a PR student, I have found that being “in the know” is really important. Since I’m really not one of those people who watches the news, I always make sure I check online for current events. As important as it is for us to know what’s going on in the world, it is also important for us to be knowledgeable about what’s going on in the PR world and how current events effect our profession. I have found that the best way to stay informed is by reading PR blogs. Here are a few of my favorite PR blogs.

1. prdaily.com

PRDaily is an extremely diverse blog. They post articles about social media issues, marketing, traditional media relations, and so much more. Their blog provides career advice and it’s a great way to stay up-to-date on PR happenings.

2. prinyourpajamas.com

This blog is a great resource when you’re in a rut or just don’t know how to do something. PR In Your Pajamas always has great tips and tricks for whatever project you’re working on. There are posts about graphic design, marketing, social media relevance, creating content and so many other important topics. The blog has advice and lots of infographics.

3. bulldogreporter.com

Bulldog Reporter is another great source for current events and PR issues. They also have an interesting section called the “PR PROfile,” which features a PR professional in the area. I think reading about the featured professional always gives me an idea of what I could be doing and what I should be doing to get there.

4. Flack Me

The blog has a mixture of posts that range from current events to discussion topics. Their discussion posts are always really interesting and if you join the discussion, you may learn a few things. Flack Me is actually the blog for a job search engine that specializes in advertising and marketing jobs, so there are always job postings on their blog.

5. millenialmarketing.com

Millennial Marketing focuses on how companies and PR professionals are adapting to this new group of consumers. As a Millennial, it is always interesting to read about what companies are doing to appeal to me. Their posts are always worth a read.
