Inside The Acorn: Week 4
Being a short work week means two things. (Ed. This post was originally written May 31, 2012) We’re one day closer to the weekend and there’s a lot to be done in a short period of time, so needless to say, things are busy around here.
I got to try my hand at some Tweet and Facebook update creation to be used during the Love Does contest which officially opened on Wednesday May 23, 2012 (now past). Remember, that Canadian adventure excursion research I was doing?
Another fun project I’m working on is a “getting to know our staff” social media initiative, during which each team member answers a variety of quirky questions, developed by yours truly. Coming up with these questions was fun, and some of the answers I’m getting back are hilarious. For example, did you know that Ellen’s guilty pleasure is reading People magazine when she’s flying? Be sure to keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook accounts for more snippets of these interviews as well.
Remember that exciting new fall project we’re going to be working on? I got some more insight on some of our Baker Publishing Group authors we will be doing Canadian publicity for when I wrote up small, author biographies to be sent to Canadian broadcasting outlets in the hopes of securing some interesting interviews.
Lastly, Ellen asked if I could pull some blog content for the Give Every Day blog. The blog and concept behind it is run by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. Its premise is that by working together, individuals, families and churches with bold generosity and prayerful commitment to Give Every Day will accomplish great things locally, nationally and globally. They believe that if each one of the adult members of the PAOC family sowed even a one dollar seed for missions every day, they would double their missions’ budgets and reap a world-transforming harvest of $60 million a year. Pulling blog content for this page gave me the opportunity to learn about the amazing work missionaries both at home and abroad are doing for the kingdom. From a public relations perspective the assignment taught me a little bit about writing blog content to meet a client’s specific needs.
