I have been negligent this past week, so here are some highlights among posts I found in PR blog world.
PR Education, blog Birthday,
Meyers-Briggs, Future of PR…
A PR Guru’s Musings – Stuart Bruce
Stuart Bruce has a very funny post – if only for one quote:
One of my channels in FeedDemon is called “So-called A-list Bloggers”. It is dedicated to what I term the blogging mafia.
How refreshing to see someone state – publicly – their feelings on this topic. I have felt it for a long time, and written about it. But, the phrase “blogging mafia” to describe the self-proclaimed gurus and “PR blog” koolaid addicts? Well, that is too funny. And, to sweeten the punch, Stuart links to several ‘true’ PR / Communication blogs in order to educate the masses of linker-oners that seem to be similarly koolaid drunk.

Allan Jenkins: Desirable Roasted Coffee
Allan Jenkins’s blog is now two years old. Congratulations to Allan. He is now participating in Marcomblog.com with our students. Prior to this, his blog was the focus of several exercises devoted to blogging ethics and/or best practices. Many thanks to Allan for his kindness and support, too. Also, for sheer fun – please read Allan’s post entitled “Man Kills Buck With Bare Hands in Bedroom for an interesting chuckle. For southerners, especially, deer stories have a special meaning. I almost hit two the other night on the way back from my sister’s house. It is late Fall and deer are everywhere.
Phil’s Blogservations: www.philgomes.com
Phil Gomes recognized our program of PR student blogging activities and PRblogs.org and elsewhere. Thank you, Phil. I had the pleasure of speaking with him on the phone last week and it was quite enjoyable.
I also enjoyed Phil’s Meyers-Briggs shoutout: Love To The World’s INTJs.
After years of work in Student Affairs at two universities, I am very aware of Meyers-Briggs – and, have taken the test several times myself. For the record, I most often test out as an INFJ, but my scores are often borderline (about 50/50) on each. Other times, I – like Phil – test as an INTJ.
I don’t know how you feel about personality assessment tests, but I’ve seen students and their results. Too often, they are quite revealing. I find it interesting to learn, after that phone conversation, that Phil and I test relatively the same. Hmm? I wonder how other PR practitioners test on Meyers-Briggs? It would be an interesting study.

I will be participating in the event, too.
