Weekly Roundup 9.12


Are you constantly scanning news aggregators, refreshing your social media feeds and skimming blogs you’ve bookmarked? I will admit – I am one of those people who is insatiably trying to soak up information. It may look like I’m playing Candy Crush all day on my phone; however, I am actually relentlessly reading and posting. I am more drawn to public relations, social media and writing related articles than I am to, say, articles about geocaching because of my chosen field of study (though there is no doubt that I am intrigued by geocachers and their quest for hidden treasure).

So, I am starting this series to share articles that catch my eye each week with you. Most will be geared towards the public relations industry, but you never know what interesting finds I will come across!
