A Simple Hello.

[tweetmeme source=”amfunderburk1” http://www.URL.com%5D

This is my very first blog, so why not explain what struck my interest in creating one. I currently attend Western Carolina University where I major in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing. I am involved with Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and this semester I am PR Jobs and Internships Director. I am also involved with Catamount Communications (Cat Comm), which is the student-run public relations firm on campus. This semester I am working on teams with two of our clients: Fundred and Good Samaritan Clinic.

Seeing that I am majoring in what is becoming a very competitive field, I have decided to become hands-on with all social media that I can. With Facebook and Twitter down, blogging is my next endeavor. The purpose of my blog is simple: share with you guys what I learn as I learn it. Along with that I will be posting experience I gain as I work on my very first campaigns. This is my first semester working on a campaign, and I am lucky to have two clients to work with! This is a great opportunity to obtain hands-on experience of writing press releases, helping maintain a newsletter, event planning, working with an organizations social media, and many other things. I will also be posting updates about my research of jobs available in public relations.

    Hi there! I’m curious about the kinds of blog posts you’ll have here. I see you’re well on your way, and I like the most recent one about reception etiquette. Now there is a topic I would have never thought of. Obviously I am very interested in PR & marketing, at least from the perspective of how it relates to brand evangelists, word of mouth buzz, influencers, and social media. Look forward to more posts from you. Melody

    Thanks for your comment! I just added a new blog. I am looking forward to reading your blog as well and maybe you can guest post for me in the future! I am working on keeping it updated, because I have been failing at that lately. The reception was great! I am very glad I was able to attend because I learned so much!
