New-ish, new and student PR faces to watch out for

I have had a bit of a re-shuffle here are 'wages' towers. As you can now see from the right hand side of the page I have re-jigged my links to add more new / student bloggers. I think that reading other PR students and new starters often will provide the freshest look into an issue, as well as providing an insight as to who could be the big hitters of the future. There are some new faces in the link list and in the spirit of all the PR love and blogtipping going around, I'll go through some of them for you now.

All things PR was set up last month by Sam Oakley, who is based in the North of England. He describes his blog as 'forum for UK PR professionals of all stripes to contribute towards a better understanding of how new phenomena like social networking sites etc.. are impacting on PR here in the UK'. Sam has interests in Political PR and Public Affairs and already has a loyal following. Check out his 5 myths of the public sector.

Ashley's Blog is from another of Robert French's students. Double majoring in Spanish and PR would be a lot for most people but Ashley writes a wide range of thoughtful, insightful and sometimes funny posts. His insight into the differences between his Spanish and American experiences are fascinating.

At D-Ring PR the US army, Chipotle Mexican Grill Recipes and Public Relations are all addressed by Steve, a 24-year-old graduate of American University, working in the Office of the Chief of Army Public Affairs. Great inspiration for his Monday fun posts!

Chris Clark at Student PR already has a huge following, and it is well deserved. Although now an ex-student and working at Thornley Fallis Group as an account coordinator Chris has appeared in the FIR podcast and says 'As long as we want to work, we need to be willing to learn.' Recently he has been waging war on fake 'PR' advertisements and providing us with one of the funniest promo videos I have seen in so long.

Jeffrey Treem, of Inside the Cubicle, is an Account Executive with Edelman's Employee Engagement Practice with a 'quasi-obsession with new media'. He has his own podcast and posts about the PR working environment.

Jill Pyle has one of the coolest blog pages I have seen for quite a while. She is a fourth year public relations student at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, NS. Like me she enjoys discovering new social media and often writes insightful posts about her course and what she has recently learned. I particularly like her recent posts about her job in September.

I love Laterstudy! Heather Smith's often hilarious look at being a 'mature' student on a Public Relations course is 'about Flash and semiology and narrative and ucas forms and writing and mise en scene and spaniels and lectures and lecturers and camper vans and photography and finding the right bank account and books and other things' and very definitely doesn't disappoint or hold back! She also has one of the most comprehensive list of links for everything that a sensible UK student could ever need, and much more.

I realise that some of the people on my New / Student list have bigger and better known blogs than I, the term 'New' is for 'New to the industry' or sometimes 'New to me'. So, if you are on the list and are not mentioned I apologise and will endeavour to do you a write up in the future. You are probably just so well known that there is no point in introducing you (Stephen, Paull, Owen, Ed, Marie, Richard, I could go on...) . Like-wise if you have a new blog and want to have some link love leave your address in the comment section and I'll pop you on.

Oh come on.

Me? Well known?

You've not seen my Analytics traffic or my Technorati rating.

Thanks for the mention though. And thanks for finding the new ones. Makes less work for me.

Richard Millington said...

My name links to Ed?

Does this mean me and Ed are the same person?

This is very confusing.

Alex Pullin said...

Oops sorry! I will rectify that now Richard. My mistake!

Owen, you are indeed well known, almost every blog I have been too in the last month or so there has been at least one comment from you! This may not relate to your traffic immediately, but it will.

Steve Field said...

Hey Alex,

Great post. You have pointed me in the direction of a few more blogs from rising PR stars that I will need to add to my feed.

Alex Pullin said...

Heather and Steve - I'm glad I could be of service! Thank you for providing me with your blogs.

Easton Ellsworth said...

Alex, thanks for proving once again that human-powered lists like these trump computer-generated ones any day. My knowledge of PR blogs is a bit limited, although I did know about Chris Clarke's blog and like it very much (and not just because he likes blogtipping). I ought to check these blogs out.

Jill Pyle said...

Hello Alex,
Thank you for including me in your list. I find it very flattering :)
Jill

Flackette said...

Wow, I am definitely jumping onto this post incredibly late, but thank you for the mention, Alex! You are far too kind. I definitely plan on checking out some of the blogs you mentioned.

And congrats on the new job at Lewis! I hope you are having a fantastic second day. ;)

Ed Lee said...
