I love blogging (hence why you see me posting here so often). Here are my top ten favorite PR blogs (in no particular order) to follow/subscribe to, so that you can keep up on trends, current events, new tools and more.

  1. Josh Linker. He often speaks about trends that are mainstream as well as near and dear to his heart. As a founder and CEO of four tech companies, and a financer of many other companies, this pro has a lot of PR counsel to offer.
  2. Ragan’s PR Daily. I love the pop culture-esque blog posts here. Also, the gifs are to die for.
  3. prTini. Heather Whaling is the founder/president of Geben Communication and someone I consider to be a productivity guru.
  4. Tanner Friedman. This metro Detroit agency is always the first to post about trending topics, as well as current (local and global) events.
  5. 834 Design & Marketing. This blog not only offers the latest on PR trends but also provides insight on the Grand Rapids market. (As some of you may know, I received my degree from Grand Valley State University, my mentor and PRSSA chapter advisor was Adrienne Wallace, 834’s Director of Digital Strategy.)
  6. Spin Sucks. (If you haven’t read the book – do it!) This blog offers a variety of PR topics/knowledge – no matter your area of PR expertise you’ll find an interest here.
  7. Bulldog Reporter’s “Daily Dog”. You won’t miss a thing by getting these alerts.
  8. PRSAY (the PRSA blog). (Because duh!)
  9. PR Week. You won’t miss a beat, particularly this election season, in terms of PR insight here.
  10. PR In Your Pajamas. This blog aims to educate individuals and businesses on increasing awareness in order to change the world – very cool content!

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
