Remember the Bimbo Princess blogger I introduced in my last post? I asked her why she blogs. Her simple reply speaks volumes about not only blogging, but communication/PR/IMC (whatever we call our jobs), education, and life in general.
She said she blogs “to learn to tell the truth.”
The Princess is a senior Mass Comm. major in Towson’s PR Track. After writing for professors, or rather, regurgitating information for some profs, I understand what she means. After reading about, and experiencing, some of the phoniness that passes for “relationships” today, I see her point.
Her blog is her truth.
To me, her reason for blogging is a powerful lesson, whether we are educators, corporate bloggers, recreational bloggers, or communication/PR/IMC professionals.
To me, a huge part of the lesson is the responsibility it implies.
