Well one year ago, I was sitting in Lubbock, Texas at Texas Tech University working on my master’s degree. One of my agricultural communication classes required that we blog for the class, I had already started a blog, but I hated it. I didn’t like my layout, it was unprofessional and I just wasn’t comfortable blogging.
Following that class, I got started writing my thesis about blogs use by agricultural organizations. Needless to say I got over my fear of blogs.
Drumroll…my top five blog posts are…
- I Wont Ever Eat Chipotle With Willie…or anyone for That Fact…Again
- Pink Slime, For Me Please-Facts for All
- My Who’s Who of Agricultural Social Media
- Oregon Wolf Education
- Good Question McDonalds, “Where does breakfast come from?”
The top two posts were hot topics in the media this year. I will be honest, these topics were so hot at the time and I didn’t have time to put together a solid blog post, so I did what I am good at…I provided resources. These resources were from highly credible people and others who were very active with these media discussions. I also made sure to continually update posts with the latest information that I found. This is something that all of my thesis research pointed out that blog authors don’t do. I hope that some of you found these posts as valid resources.
The blog post that I am the most proud of and I will continue to stand by is Good Question McDonalds, “Where does breakfast come from?” I could not stand the McDonald’s #MeetTheFarmers and #McDStories PR campaign, you can argue both sides of this campaign, but I couldn’t handle it.
There was some great discussion that started with these posts, and I have liked seeing what people are searching for and being driven to my blog.
