I mentioned on my birthday post last week that I wanted to help promote other bloggers in the PR space who are either new to the industry or have recently started a blog, and I have two corkers for you to start with.
The first is the blog of Josie Herbert, a dear friend of mine who has provided guest posts here before. I have worked with Josie at both Whiteoaks and éclat Marketing and learnt and loved every minute of it. She is one of the most honest and hard working individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with and this is reflected by the success she has made of being a freelance gun for hire.
One of the main skills that Josie has is that she loves technology and unlike many PR professionals really likes to dive in and get under the skin of how it works. This is demonstrated in her blog. She writes with a passion and likes to delve into each subject in detail. Her blog is well worth adding to your blog roll and if you ever need any freelance support I can’t recommend her enough.
The second is Rebecca Wheeler, another of my former colleagues but this time she is from the amazing Berkeley PR. Becca has just started her own PR and marketing blog and has already featured in PR Week’s best of the technology PR bloggers which I think tells you a lot about the quality of her writing. Having taken a year away from PR to work for a digital agency her posts bring an intelligent view of both what is required from both skill sets.
I also find it interesting that they have both chosen to use the same blog design.
