Recently I found out that Kylie Borgen stalks my blog posts. It's flattering, really.
Today in Media Programming we talked to Sandy Ordinez via Skype conference call. Sandy works for OurBlook.com which is a philanthropic site that takes a topic, has experts blog on it, then combines all the blogs into one online book. Blook.
I was the first in the class to ask Sandy a question in which she told me that I asked a great question! Thanks Sandy, I love confidence boosters! After a few more questions were asked, I realized that Kylie, Ashley, Kelsey and everyone else also had a "great question!" Darn. So maybe mine wasn't so great after all, but here is what I asked:
What would you say OurBlook.com's key mission is?
Answer: To provide the journalism world with authoritative information and to give journalism and communication students access to tools and skills they need because STUDENTS ARE THE FUTURE; therefore, the more educated the student, the better the industry.
I am the future. My classmates are the future. Isn't that scary?
Anyway, our class is creating a PR campaign for OurBlook.com to implement at the end of the semester. We are doing everything from press releases to social media to competitions. This is a big project, but I am excited to see what our group can come up with. Watch out Sandy, you're going to get blown away!
