MY TOP 10

Posted in Uncategorized on May 3, 2009 by icetrey

It si the end of the year, and that means it is time to wrap everything up!  Here is a list of the TOP 10 things I learned in my Intro To Public Relations course:

  1. The first thing I really learned about in this class was the importance of  social media in today’s society.  Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace are all very influential in today’s world, and it is in our best interest to use them to our benefit.
  2. I learned the importance of research within public relations.  It is vital to find out as much as you can about your target market, as well as your competition when putting together a PR campaign.
  3. Another thing I learned about was news releases and how to use them.  News releases are very popular and much needed when putting together a successful PR campaign.  I also learned the anatomy of a news release.
  4. I also learned how to use WordPress, and blogs in general, to communicate with the world.  I experimented with blogs a few years ago, but did not truly understand how to effectively use them until taking this course.
  5. Another thing I learned was that I don’t want to solely dedicate myself to the PR fields of study.  I found this out after interviewing a PR professional and finding out what it is really like.
  6. I learned the many factors that go into job interviewing and the best way to go about it.
  7. Although I already had a resume put together before taking this class, I learned the importance of a good resume and how to take mine to the next level.
  8.   At the end of the course, I learned about AP style writing and ow important it is to write in AP style as a PR professional.
  9. I also learned how important it is to be ethical in everything you do…especially in the PR field.
  10. Last but definitely not least… I learned the definition of Public Relations and what it really encompasses. THERE IS NO ONE DEFINITION OF PUBLIC RELATIONS… but it basically combines marketing, advertisement, and journalism into one .

A Terrible Crime at UGA

Posted in Uncategorized on April 30, 2009 by icetrey

arch1-lookingdowntownf240x295I just wanted to take this time to say how shocked and disgusted I was to hear about the incidents that took place at the University of Georgia some days ago.  When I heard that there was a triple murder, I couldn’t believe it… but when I got word that the main suspect was a teacher at the institute, I didn’t know what to think.  I very well could have been in Athens going to school right now, and it took me a while to accept GA Southern as my academic home.  But after hearing this, my whole mindset has changed about the school.  Now don’t get me wrong, I am still a big UGA fan and always will be.  But just thinking about the crimes that took place in Athens, along with the fact that the suspect is still on the run, is crazy.  I hope the authorities find this teacher, and I hope the school does everything in its powers to further ensure the safety of its students.

STUDY BREAK!!!!

Posted in Uncategorized on April 30, 2009 by icetrey

Yes…I waited until the last minute to post all of my chapter notes!  They key word there is POST!  I already had several chapter notes prepared before ariving at the library tonight, but I will admint that I had to put together a few tonight. The moral of the story is to gradually take care of business, rather than putting it off and accepting a few all-nighters in the library!

Whats up world!?  IceTrey checkin in…

Before I get to this assignment (Im about to post it right after this!), I just wanted to let everone know what’s going on in my world.  Between my schoolwork, the three companies I work for, and the 2 artists I manage…I am really starting to wish I had more than 24 hours in a day!  I’ve got 6 exams, 3 projects, 2 presentations, and this blog all due BEFORE April 30!  I’m putting together the 2009 Promoter’s Ball on the campus of GA Southern, which is taking place on April 24, 2009 at Club Zone in Statesboro, GA.  The next day, April 25, 2009, I am hosting The ATL Invasion in Chatanooga, TN. 

As you can see…I am a busy man! So I guess I should go ahead and do this assignment!
