Top 10 Blog Posts

Today, Relatively Journalizing celebrates one full month of continuous daily posting! If you want the full story on how this blog got started, check out my first post.

The number of subscribers to and viewers of Relatively Journalizing has doubled in the last week, so I thought this would be a good time to celebrate and review our top 10 posts so far in case you've just joined the party. If you've been with us for awhile, thanks. I really appreciate your subscribing to the RSS feed, following me on Twitter, joining the Relatively Journalizing Facebook group and commenting. Please take a minute to review some of the older posts and leave a comment about your favorite ones. Expect the same great content to keep being showcased here with posts about public relations, journalism, techie/geek news, new media, current events, guest bloggers and whatever else seems important. Of course, I'll keep updating on my internships and jobs, chronicling my professional experiences before your very eyes, asking for your comments in the form of support, opinions, advice and any other feedback you care to share with the Relatively Journalizing community.
