Blog Review: PRos in Training

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 7, 2008 by mjung18

The second blog that I chose to review for my Corporate PR class is a blog entitled PRos in Training.

The banner under the title of this blog reads “ Tips, tools, resources and random thought for students (and veterans) of public relations” and I feel that is totally what this sight has to offer.

As a senior PR student myself I found many different posts that not only provided interesting information, but also provided some creative insight into topic and issues that I had never really thought about before.

I have to admit that I feel that this blog definitely offers more in the “random thoughts” area than any of the others, but even those random thoughts still provide quality and well thought out information.

Personally the pictures, videos and other graphics associated with this blog definitely help with making it as pleasing to look at as it is. The clean design makes it easy for any reader to locate and read a posting on basically any topic that you can think of.

The only change that I would make is a purely personal preference and that would be to make the actual columns that the text is in wider. Like I said it is a simple personal preference but still one that I think would make the blog look better as a whole.

Beyond the look and feel of this blog, I have to admit that nearly all of the posts that I read or saw definitely had great and very useful information, which is what we are all really look for in the long run anyways. I would definitely recommend this blog and as a soon to be newbie in the PR working world I could definitely see myself using this blog as a useful tool to help me transition from student to professional
