Introducing PR Bloggers – for people who blog about PR

PR Bloggers is a new Twitter account created for people in the public relations industry to share and discover PR blog posts, news and events.

You can find it @PR_Bloggers. I asked its creator Rebecca Henderson to share the thinking behind the account and how you can get involved.

She’s a PR Account Exec at Lee Peck Media and a PR MA Graduate from Solent University here in the UK.

I’ve been blogging since March 2009 and have written 1032 articles over the past eight years.

If you’re thinking about writing a blog, see the advice in my 1000th post: What writing 1000 blog posts has taught me.

Good luck to everyone up for gongs at the National Blog Awards tonight, especially Helen Reynolds @helreynolds.

I’ll hand you over to Rebecca…

Introducing PR Bloggers for people who blog about PR

The PR Bloggers Twitter account, @PR_Bloggers, was created when I was looking at other blogging niches and how to further promote my own PR and lifestyle blog, Bright Lights Big City.

I realised that other fields have promotional Twitter accounts that retweet them and support them with mentions.

Beauty, travel and lifestyle bloggers have lots of accounts that offer them support in promoting their posts.

But, there weren’t any Twitter accounts that I could find specifically for public relations bloggers, so I decided to set one up.

Everyone needs a bit of support and I thought it’s about time that PR bloggers have the same opportunity to boost their posts.

My aim is to provide PR bloggers with a place to promote their posts to a wider audience and allow people to discover new bloggers that are writing on similar topics.

Discovering new blogs to read and follow is part of continually learning and growing.

There’s something really exciting about finding out about news, trends and opinions, and I want to nurture that feeling in other PR professionals and give them a platform to share.

It’s very early days, but the account has attracted a lot of influential followers in the PR community.

I’m excited to see the account grow, it’s almost reached 100 followers in its first week of being live. I hope the account keeps growing to create a strong network for public relations bloggers.

If you are looking to promote your PR post and blog, then please tag us using #PRBloggers or @PR_Bloggers for a mention and a retweet.
