After listening and watching the podcast, I was presently surprised at how comfortable Kneale Mann made me feel about blogging and public relations/ communications in general. I learned that communications is changing and a lot depends on how you define media. These days it’s a lot harder to get a managerial position since everyone is self-published. Much of what I learned where things that surprised me as well. He talked about writing a blog about things that interest you and/or things that you like i.e. Professor Nixon likes NASCAR so she could blog about that. Mr. Mann also said to keep writing. I thought everything you wrote had to serve a specific purpose, but I learned that you need to just keep writing ; write stuff. Another thing that also stuck out to me was that Mr. Mann said to take time and to comment on other people’s blogs. After hearing this I would really like to learn how to become a better blogger and learn to get comfortable with just writing online. It seems very foreign to me so I need to learn to accept it and try. I would also like to learn more about some of the authors that were talked about. They seemed like they would be good and helpful books to read to help me with this profession and get me more educated.
