5 Tips That’ll Make You an Amazing Blogger; Nina Harden

Nina, I love your tips for blogging. The tips that I suggest are a lot similar to yours. I agree that bloggers need to be theirselves and original. That is very crucial to blogging because no one wants to read blogs that are not unique to the writer. Readers want to hear about the writers life. Going off defining your ideal readers, it is important to know who you want to read your blog. Once you define your ideal audience, you will be in great hands. Love the blog!

Cashmer, I like how this blog post was different than most that I have read! I like how you start the reader out with different platforms to use. The second thing that I liked was how you told readers to use visuals. These are key things to blogging that people may forget about. This shows that the “extras” are just as important as the writing! Great work!

10 things I learned from my 6 months blogging; Jenny

Jenny, going off of what you said with your voice, I couldn’t agree more with you on that. That shows me that it may be difficult at times to stay true to what your feeling virtually. We say it is easy to portray your true version of yourself, but sometimes that is difficult while facing difficult topics that hit home with different people. Your advice to stay consistent is something that I have not thought about. I think that that will greatly benefit your readers and they will know when you will post. Another key point you highlighted was about social media. You say that social media is key to blogging. I agree that it is the way that allows readers to access your work and makes your branding consistent on different platforms.

Cheerios Media Relations Crisis Communication; Ra’Leshia

I remember hearing about this crisis situation when Prince passed away. I believe that since the public viewed this ad as not respectful, Cheerios did the correct thing. They received the negative backlash and right when they heard about the complaints they went ahead and removed it. You make a good point, since the statement was made quickly and appropriately, it showed Cheerios general concern for the public. Nice blog post about a crisis communication situation!

Pepsi & Kendall Jenner Stir Up Controversary with New Jump in Ad; Alexis Chateau PR

Hello Alexis! I am currently studying crisis communication in my PR course at Indiana State University. We have talked about Pepsi’s ad quite a bit and some things that you wrote about stuck out to me. You discussed how Pepsi got themselves into something that a lot of other companies have as well. A lot of brands are attempting to make ads that show diversity but the public reacts in a way that it is hard to do it in the “right” way. tUnfortunately, Pepsi’s blunder is one of many in the media, by brands that aim to capitalize on diversity issues. I believe that Pepsi should have tested this ad more throughly before they released it. If it left the idea room, well many different people were involved with that? You make a good point that we never will know what Pepsi’s process was but in the end, they will be known for this ad for awhile. Nice blog post!

“Did Charlie Sheen Do the Right Thing?: Allanee Quick

I remember reading all about the mess that Charlie Sheen got himself into. He admitted he caught HIV because he was ‘irresponsible’. He admitted to the public that he should have been more responsible and concerned for his well-bring. I know that I read a article a while back about how he didn’t mind going to the public because he considered it a huge weight off his shoulders’. You are right with what you stated about Charlie Sheen, he didn’t lie to the public and he was honest with the issues he had!

We Need Change, 2008.: Javonte Williams

Javonte, I agree with what you had to share regarding Obama’s campaign strategy. Obama is such a great public speaker, he really makes people feel like he was more than just the President of the United States. His speeches were motivating and made us feel as if he was have a conversation with everyone watching him. It is quite a change to go from Obama to Trump. Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed reading what you had to share.

Post Truth and People: Mahesh Mali

Hello Mahesh! I am a student at Indiana State and just recently studied political campaign strategies in my public relations course. I just wrote a blog about how President Trump used a unique campaign strategy to gain supporters and become our president. What Trump is doing is what successful politicians are doing and you are so right on that. You provided so many examples that ensure that this is happening and not going away. Politicians use their techniques with political strategies to influence those who may not support them. What you wrote about regarding to distinguishing what is real and what is someones opinion is very important. There is so much out there on the internet that is someones opinion, it is crucial to fact-check your information. Thanks for sharing your insight on this topic!
