Time magazine recently published a list of the Best Blogs of 2010. The selections range from humorous blogs designed to lighten your mood, to ones discussing serious issues, such as climate change and public policy.

Over the last few years, blogs have grown immensely in popularity and have changed the landscape of public relations. Blogs have opened the door to anyone with Internet access having the ability to write about their views and opinions. Thus, bloggers are now viewed by many as being just as essential to the practice and processes of public relations as journalists.

The LMGPR team recognizes the growing significance of blogs and their writers. We make a point to read and review blogs daily to stay up-to-date with what the public is saying. Below is a list of LMGPR’s favorite blogs. Some are related to public relations and technology and some are just for fun! Enjoy!

The Proactive Report: The Proactive Report is written by Sally Falkow, a social media strategist. It explores social media tactics, as well as online public relations strategies and how technology is changing communication.
