One thought on “Global PR Blog Week 2.0 starts today

  1. My professor, Robert French, is one of the supporters and participators of Global PR Blog Week. Since I just started blogging in his class, all of this is so new my head is constantly spinning. (I’m not even really sure what a wiki is!) This is really a great chance for me to figure out what’s going on without having to bug Robert all the time. I’m fresh off a trip to my first PR conference, where I went to a lot of sessions dealing with these topics, so I’m eager to find out more! It’s convenient that this is right after my trip…it’s a good follow-up for me. I look forward to reading your contributions!
