Recently I had the opportunity to present a workshop at the Social Media Bootcamp presented by the Indiana chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. I was asked to give a session called “Blogging 101” targeted at public relations professionals who are transitioning from sending out media releases to generating blog posts for their clients.
Other speakers were: Kristofer Karol, National Sports Journalism Center; Eric Deckers, Pro Blog Services; and Chad Richards, Firebelly Marketing. My particular session was attended by about 40 public relations and communications folks, most of whom were new to the blogging world. It was a bit of a whirlwind session, packing a lot of information into 90 minutes including a hands-on blogging exercise.
If you are a marketing, communications, or PR professional in Indiana and you’re not already a member, I highly suggest looking into it. The Hoosier chapter of the PRSA are smart folks, real movers and shakers.
If your organization is interested in having me out to speak about blogging or other social media topics at your brown-bag luncheon, conference or event, get in touch and we’ll talk about it.
