Exactly one year ago today I started this blog. At the time I had no idea if people would actually read any post I wrote or even how to promote it. Needless to say, I quickly discovered that Twitter is a powerful, and helpful, source to getting the word out about your blog. While my first couple of posts may not have been PR related at all, it was one way for me to start writing more and discover where exactly I wanted to go with my blog. Writing is something I am very passionate about. Growing up I used to keep journals to write about my day and of course I had a LiveJournal account at one point (which I forgot the password to or deleted… not really sure what happened to it).
Blogging, to me and I am sure a lot of other people, is a lot different than a personal journal. Over the past year I have grown my blog to be focused on different aspects of public relations that I love. I will be the first to admit that I am definitely growing and learning more and more about blogging all of the time. I feel like social media is something that everyone always has room to grow and improve on. For me, it is a new project I am going to start at some point this year (hopefully sooner than later!) with my blog. I did not have this idea until I was chatting with Kerry this past Friday when I decided to finally buy my domain name: fortheloveofpr.com. Be on the lookout in the next couple of weeks for the new project I am starting! I would give you a hint, but I am still in the planning process of where I would like to take this.
So here we are, 3,441 views on my blog later: another year of my blog. My promise to you for this coming year is that I will post at least once a week. I always have a lot to say and I like to share with everyone that follows my blog, but I slacked off this past year. I am also full of goals and new aspects of things I would like to blog about. Hope you are ready for this! I know I am. I am ready to bring it on this year, full force!
Thanks to all of you who take the time to read my blog! You guys inspire me to keep writing. You are all great!
