Today we wanted to share which of our blogs have been most popular among our readers. If you haven’t read them already, hopefully you’ll find something interesting within.

5. Seven things every small business should know about PR

6. Five children’s writing tips relevant to your business comms

You think business audiences are tough? Try asking a seven-year-old what they really think of your work! Children’s writing is difficult. It requires an in-depth understanding of your audience, punchy prose and you can’t get away with losing your reader for even a millisecond. They’ll just give up! For this reason, learning these five writing for children tips will make your business writing more engaging and pithy than ever.

Thanks to movies, TV shows and books, there are a lot of misconceptions and expectations around PR and publicity and what PRs’ and publicists’ daily lives look like. In today’s blog, I wanted to break down some of the typical misconceptions surrounding what a career in PR looks like and bring things back to reality.

9. How I landed a PR internship

When I decided I wanted to pursue an internship in PR I had no idea where to start or what I needed to do. I soon realised that it was pretty much the same as everything else in life, you just need to start somewhere! Once you’ve started, the next steps slowly fall into place – this is how I landed a PR internship with Carnsight and the steps I followed to get there.

10. Our top tips on avoiding typos

Typos are those annoying typing mistakes we all make from time to time. Words that we know how to spell but somehow always get wrong! There are few things more frustrating than an ugly typo, and they can look unprofessional. We’re all human and we can’t avoid them 100% of the time, but those grammatical mistakes are a lot easier to avoid than you may think.


We’ve worked hard to put together as much information and as many resources as possible to share with you all here amongst our blogs. We hope that our content is helpful and we look forward to sharing more with you in the new year!
