Many PR pros are passionate about blogging and social media.
Based on a variety of student questions, it occurred to me that I should write about how to start a blog. When researching, I was surprised at the lack of basic information geared toward launching a blog.
Although there are countless articles on the technical aspects, I didn’t find insight that would help blogging newbies. Here are seven things you should know before launching your first blog:
1. Use your blog to learn.
If you are a PR student, launching your own blog and writing regularly, it will help you structure your ideas and will teach you to look for blog post topics everywhere, as well as how to frame them from a PR perspective.
2. Blogs are great a networking tool.
