So….I’ve finally decided to start a blog. I’ve been debating starting one for a while, but the whole idea of sharing my thoughts, feelings, and life with the entire world seemed a little too much. However, I want a career in the PR industry, and blogging is something that will (hopefully!) help my chances of getting there, whilst allowing to do so in a way which means that I can write about what interests me.
Though, this whole ‘blogging scene’ is still pretty new to me so you will have to bear with me for the first few posts!
So I guess I should probably introduce myself then? My name is Lucy and I am an 18 year old undergraduate PR student from Wiltshire. I’ll do a post later on about why I chose PR, but for now it’ll be enough just to say that the media has always fascinated me. The reliance that we have on social media nowadays and the power that it has to influence the people who interact with it. Studying this subject at uni has opened my eyes to the bigger picture and see for myself the influence and ‘ins and outs’ of the industry, and what it truly aims to do. Public Relations links in with all of this and highlights how organisations themselves can craft a campaign to attempt to create their specific desired outcomes.
My plan for this blog is to update you all on my life (and my random thoughts), university life, and my journey into my dream job in the PR industry. Through this blog I hope to be able to express my opinions, write about what interests me, and to be able to discover myself a little more.
I’m planning my first ‘proper’ post now, so will see you all soon 🙂
