How Blogging Can Be Used as a Great PR Tool!

Being a public relations professional, I decided to start a blog, www.michellestephenson.blogspot.com, to give PR tips as well as to inform readers about upcoming events, what's going on in our community, post my press releases and whatever else I feel like discussing. It's just another outlet to have my opinion heard as well as the opinion of my readers.So, feel free to make comments! I look forward to hearing from you!

"Why Blog?" you ask....
1. Easy and FREE way to market yourself and/or your product.
Blogging is a great tool to promote your products and services or just to let people know who you are.

2. It's a way to connect with people.
Blogging helps you to stay in touch with friends, family, business associates, etc., and to meet new people who have like-interests.

3. To establish yourself as an expert.
Blogs are wonderful tools to help bloggers establish themselves as experts in a field or topic. For example, if you're trying to get a job in a specific field or hoping to publish a book on a specific topic, blogging can help legitimize your expertise and expand your online presence and platform.

4. It's a way to express yourself and have your voice heard.
Got an opinion on the presidential debate? Want to complain about high gas prices? Speak your mind!

5. To Stay Active or Knowledgeable in a Field or Topic.
Since successful blogging is partially dependent on posting frequency and providing updated, fresh information, it's a perfect way to help a blogger stay abreast of the events in a specific field or topic.

6. To Make Money
It's important to point out that most bloggers don't make a lot of money blogging, but the potential does exist to generate revenue from your blog with hard work and commitment. There are many bloggers who bring in big bucks. With patience and practice, you can make money through advertising and other income-generating activities on your blog. (I'mn not there yet...but I'll get there soon!)

I enjoyed your writings on blogging. As soon as I master the editing of videos I will make some good money with my online news services.

Hello Michele,
I am very interested in "Paying forward" and I see blogging as a golden opportunity to do that. I have submitted a post on InHouston offering to field any home construction questions from this great group as the first step towards that end.
I would love to communicate with you to assist my "start up" blog enthusiasm!!
Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards, (and Happy New Year!!)
Patrick Harrington
