My Credentials in a Nutshell

April 14, 2008

Beth Evans at PRSSA National Assembly 2007This begins a series of posts that I’ll write as assignments for my Advanced Public Relations Writing course, taught by Tiffany Derville, Ph.D.; her blog is The PR Post. My first post is supposed to introduce my blog topic and public relations experience. Currently, I’ve been blogging about marketing communications, arts management, and internationalism, and how these all intersect. I may add leadership to these, in which I have formal training. However, all my posts for class will directly relate to public relations.

The name of my blog developed out of an inside joke with a good friend, who uses the word “ninja” interchangeably with “master.” (For example, “You’re a ninja at gardening.”) I hope to one day be a PR Ninja. PR ninjas are not necessarily secretive in how they perform PR.

I wrote a lengthy narrative on my experiences related my blog’s topics but decided to scrap it altogether for two reasons: I’m trying to not write 1,700-word blog posts, and almost nobody wants to read that many words about me. If you want the full version, just ask me through one medium or another, but here’s a summary of my qualifications:

* In order to be transparent with my readers, I’d like to make it very clear that I’m in charge of a PRSSA Regional Activity titled Northwest Networking: Hiking Toward PR Success. Any instance in which I mention this activity, such as including its blog in my blogroll, is shameless promotion of my own event.
