Originally, when I asked last week’s poll question asking all of you to vote for your favorite outlet to gather PR news and information, I thought it would be fun to find out which were the most popular. But I then realized that the poll was about a whole lot more than just what our favorite and least favorite outlets are. It should have been more of celebration of these great resources.
When I took a step back after releasing the poll, I realized just how many valuable news outlets and opinion pages exist and we should all embrace every single one of them. We are all going to have our favorite site,s and certainly some outlets provide more regular content than others, but I can’t say that I’ve ever read an article on a blog/outlet that didn’t make me think about something … that I didn’t learn from.
So what’s my point? My point is that we should soak up as much information as humanly possible. There are so many outlets that are providing unbelievably helpful information, FOR FREE, and they are designed to help us learn more and continually educate us on the happenings within our industry.
The poll should not have been written as a popularity contest. In this poll everyone was a winner. So I’d like to apologize on the way it was presented and instead say “THANK YOU” to every blog, outlet, site, etc. that provides information for PR pros and students alike. I will keep reading each and every one of them because they all help feed my hunger for knowledge and prepare me to do my job better.
