The Florida Public Relations Association today wraps up its first-ever FPRA Blog Week.

Modeled after Global PR Blog Week, FPRA Blog Week is an online discussion of issues and trends featuring articles written by members of the Orlando Area Chapter of FPRA.

The online event was held at http://www.fprablog.com from April 10-14, 2006. Contributors and participants in the event have included both new and seasoned public relations practitioners.

During the five-day forum, the blog published 19 case studies, articles and interviews on a variety of public relations topics, including accreditation, workplace ethics, crisis management and corporate responsibility.

"Although the event itself wraps up today, the content is online and will continue to be available as a resource," said Bob O'Malley, co-creator of FPRA Blog Week 2006. "The articles are insightful and beneficial to professional development, even for those outside the public relations field."
