Much to learn, you still have!!

This blog is part of an assignment of the module PR and Technology, of the MSc course I’ m having in Stirling. I have to admit, that I chose this module, which wasn’t compulsory, only because I was feeling I had to confront technology. I was something like technophobe, or at least tech-illiterate.

In the beginning of the semester, when we first created our blogs, I was excited. I could publish whatever I wanted. I would have a voice. I am really happy that now this assignment is almost over, I am as excited as I was then. I really took to it.

I really enjoyed my presence in the blogosphere. Maybe I am the one, who mostly enjoyed this assignment. I’ve spent many hours searching in the blogosphere, reading other blogs and looking for interesting things to write and comment about.

Even though it was a little bit hard, at least in the beginning, to engage myself in the conversation, at least I‘ve learnt a lot, and I think I am very benefited by my engagement with the blogosphere.

In total, I feel very satisfied I chose that module. During the last two months, not only I’ve learnt about tools I had no idea that existed, but now I also read the RSS feeds of my favourite blogs, I have an account to Bebo, MySpace, Yahoo 360, I am member of the group that Derek (our tutor) has created in Facebook, I have an account in Twitter (which I haven’t started using it though) and I have a clear idea about how new technologies affect the PR practice.

Now that I will not have to search the blogosphere to find something interesting to write about, I don’t know if I will have the same willingness to do so. But the fact that I really enjoyed it makes me feel that I would like to going on with it.

This post is accompanied with the picture that I uploaded with the first post of this blog. It’s true that I’ve learnt a lot, but…Much to learn you still have…:-)

Hello Evi!!!

Thank you very much for your comment and all the wishes! I hope that you had an interesting and challenging year here in Stirling and your Masters helped you find the job that you were looking for!!
To tell you the truth I have the same feeling about the non-use of ICTs in Greek PR industry. Having worked for 4 years in the PR sector i had never actually even heard about social networks, wikis, RSS, Blogs and all the fascinating tech-tools that we are being taught this semester. It seems that greek market- being more traditional - needs more time to adapt and cope with the new ways of communication.
Let's wait and see ...

Once again thank you for your comment! btw...i reaaaaaaaaly miss Greece :(
