Public relation practitioners and industry gurus Trevor Young of parkyoung and Kylie Lewis of Slice Media created a list of Australian and New Zealand PR blogs. We often hear about top marketing blogs but not PR ones. Now more than ever, is a time for PR to shine and what better way to stay abreast of industry knowledge than to read what your peers are writing. 

I have included a note from Kylie below:

Big shoutout to all the fab tweeters who responded to our calls for
assistance with this post – you guys give good tweet!

Weve tried to make sure these are blogs specifically about PR
issues/campaigns written by flacks.

If youre not on the list and think you should be, leave a comment and well add you in
. If you are on the list and would prefer not to be, or
would like your listing updated/corrected, ditto.

While we did find more blogs than listed, if they hadnt been updated for more than six months, we didnt include them. Even so, we were a tad
surprised that we didnt find more PR comms blogs. Are comms people too
busy helping their clients with blogs of their own? Is blogging seen
as to time consuming for the perceived return? Hmm… interested to hear
thoughts from the frontline. Regardless, theres lots of great stuff listed, so dig in and enjoy!
