New Year. New Beginnings.

I love the holidays – the lights, the music, family, the general shared feeling of merriment. The one thing I despise about this time of year, however, is the incessant want to make resolutions for the New Year. Maybe it’s because I’ve never been good at resolutions in general – I always wait until zero hour to choose something to change about myself, the choice is always something vague and hard to gauge, and within a month I have usually given up or at least lost motivation.

Blame Facebook

If you have yet to fall victim to the social phenomena known as Facebook, you're a dying breed. Quite literally everyone I know is logging on these days. My sister's cat even has its own page and I think it might have more "friends" than I do. Seriously.

The Social Media Revolution and Public Relations

In our PR Central and PRSSA meetings tonight we had the privilege to hear recent Central Michigan graduate Rachel Esterline, Social Media Specialist for AGP & Associates, Inc. and founder of the Great Lakes Bay Region Social Media Club, talk about how important of a tool social media is becoming to run a successful campaign for any kind of client. Whether it be starting a Facebook page or opening a Twitter account, clients need to become involved in the conversation.

2010 Jock Rock

This past semester I've been working with a team through the student run public relations firm on campus, PR Central, to help promote the 2010 Jock Rock. We have been involved in every aspect of setting up the promotion of this event, including getting plugs on radio shows, advertisements on the campus television station, placement in the calendar of events that are featured in campus dining halls, and much more.

Photography from last semester

I've uploaded all of the photography from my projects last semester to Photobucket. I figured it would just be easier to have everything stored online instead of trying to keep all of my disks organized. If you get bored, feel free to check them out at my Photobucket account.

New Year, New Adventures!

Alright, it was a winter break full of non-stop, much needed work, but it's back to the educational world with the new semester. I am taking some of my pretty intense senior level courses right now and I have also been hired as a consultant for the student run firm here on campus PR Central. I will be working with a team of four and with our client Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to promote their annual spring event Jock Rock. I'm really excited for this chance to gain some hands-on experience, help out a program on campus, and to add some pieces to my portfolio. I will make sure to keep this blog updated about my work on the project and I will upload any pieces I worked on.
