How I use Social Media By: Ryan Shea

Ryan Shae


It is crazy how big twitter has become in the past couple years. I first got a twitter in 2007, but I went through a time that I didn’t use it very often. Now I am an avid twitter user as well. It is a great way to find out what is going on in the world, and quickly! I love pinterest as well, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a guys… its definitely more girly.

Mid Day Coffee Break


Oh the new year. I always sit down and write my new years resolutions as well and some of ours were the same! I also am trying to always have a book that I am reading for pleasure. During the semester I often put aside anything that I am reading for pleasure and wait until summer or spring break to pick it up. But this semester, I am determined for that to not be the case! My personal motto is less facebook, more books!


Why images are important in blog posts By: Adrian Garza

My Thoughts on PR + Social Media


I think that you are right, though videos are impactful, images are quick and shocking. I think it is important to implement pictures within blog posts because it helps break up the writing within your posts. It makes it easier to read and more interesting to look at. I personally enjoy putting pictures within my blog posts because it is fun to pick out pretty ones, but that’s just me!!


My Favorite 2012 Superbowl Commercial: M&M By: Emily Meade

PRetty in Pink


I actually never saw this commercial during the Superbowl, but I really like it! I have little sisters that were watching the Superbowl with us, and I personally was really disappointed in the number of commercials that were seductive and inappropriate. This is the first year that I ever remember being overly offended by the commercials, but I think that they are going to get a lot of complaints from US families.


My Very Rustic Wedding By: Elizabeth Telg

Merry Lovely


I love that you admitted to having your wedding almost completely planned, because I am the exact same way! Every time me and my mom go to a wedding, we can hardly wait to get back in the car and tear it apart. We seriously dissect almost every piece of the wedding, and we keep filed in the back of our minds the things we loved!! Though I have yet to find my knight in shining armor as well, I have realized that it is okay to dream, as long as it doesn’t get too out of hand. God created women this way for a reason, and I think that it is a gift that we appreciate beauty in such a special way!


A treasured [love] By: Jordyn Roe

Relating my life to the Public


You are a really great writer. The way that you arrange your words in such a delicate manner is beautiful and I hope you continue to write and inspire others! I think that it is really cool to look at other peoples lives and see different experiences that have formed who they are today because of their experiences. Today, I learned just a little more about you because of a certain love that you have within!


Scrape your Knee… Not my Blog By: Liz Colburn

Randomly Ravishing


This was a really great post and so true! What really is the point of having a blog if it isn’t your original thought and work? That is the beauty of having the freedom to blog, you can have your values, beliefs, and opinions published! So why would you steal from someone else? What’s the use in blogging if it isn’t your own? Take the opportunity to let your voice be heard and write away!


What it Takes to Make it in PR By: Taylor Flumerfelt



This was a very useful post for me as well. I especially liked the part in the article that talked about teamwork. I think that this is something that can be overlooked in college because we are all focused on individually reaching our goal of graduation, and essentially we are all on different time restraints and have different mindsets regarding work ethic. However, when you are on a team within an organization, it is vital that you are able to work well with one another and are not easily frustrated. This was a very beneficial post! Thanks, Taylor!


Wedding Planners and PR (wait, what?) By: Adrian Garza

My Thoughts on PR + Social Media


Oh I would have loved to be in this class! I love wedding planning and would love to be a wedding planner some day! I think it would be such a fun job! I think that all of your points were good. Guest posting is definitely a great way to get more traffic to your blog, and it doesn’t even take too much work! Good post!


Is Podcasting Dead? By: Rachel Laflam

Mid Day Coffee Break


I definitely agree with you. I think for companies, there are a lot other ways that are more beneficial to get through to your audience. I know for me personally, I do not take the time to sit and listen to something for an hour or even a half hour… unless I am in my car. So I would say, companies should focus in on the networking things that will really make an impact.


Pinterest: What’s in it for Businesses? By: Taylor Flumerfelt



I LOVE pinterest, and I have to admit, for a short period this past summer I think that I was some what addicted! But I have found that Pinterest is the perfect thing for events planning. You can quickly find ideas for almost any kind of even that you would want to put on. I would have to agree with #5. The ‘pin it’ button has been clicked so many times on my computer, and it makes it so easy to compile information quickly. LOVE IT!

12. is up and at ‘em. By: Jordyn Roe

“The Sea Calls to Me” she said


I love reading about your passion for missions and adoption. It is definitely my heart as well! Your blog has been such a joy for me to read this semester, and I appreciate your commitment to blogging. It is really cool to see what God is doing in your life! I also blogged when I travelled to China to adopt my little sister! If you want to check it out, it’s I haven’t written on it in awhile, but I traced our entire journey to China and back!! My God bless you as He guides you onto His mission field, Jordyn!
