In 2010, we took a new approach to PR Conversations – as we saw it, creating a Redux version. Five long years, and after nearly 600 PR Conversation posts, we’ve refreshed the look and feel, but continue to offer a platform for informed discussion, where a wide variety of voices can converse about public relations in a global-local context.
You will find the same editorial team approach which we believe offers a cohesive approach to the content, without losing the spontaneity of responding to new ideas and emerging issues.
When PR Conversations originally launched in the spring of 2007, it broke new ground by envisioning and introducing an international, collaborative PR-blog concept. Three years on, the redux version sought to build on that strong base and continue to offer something different to other blogs. That included bringing a sense of fun and excitement into online debate about public relations. We continue to do this with a number of features – including the PRoust Questionnaire, a focus on innovative programmes and case studies, and profiles of lesser-known people and new experiences.
We set out our Vision and welcome anyone who shares our belief that PR Conversations provides a great place to stop by for thought-provoking and exciting ideas that offer interesting perspectives on the many complex challenges facing public relations practitioners.
Don’t just take our word for it – PR Conversations is tops the inkybee list for relevance in its best Public Relations blog in the world.
Naturally, we are only as good as our loyal readers and contributors – so please feel free to join the dialogue and exchange considered ideas (see our Talking Points ). We also invite you to support our crowdsourcing ethos by suggesting posts or participating in our regular features.
When we launched the Redux version in 2010, we said: “As with all social media endeavours PR Conversations is a work in progress”. Well it took us five years, to update the look and feel of the site – like most people the editorial and technical administration team are busy people but we remain committed to this blog. Over the years, we have developed the format and content with the help of everyone who has contributed a post, left a comment or contacted us outside the blog forum.
That’s the main difference since we launched PR Conversations Redux – the expansion of other places to start and continue our discussions.
