Happy New Year!
And, welcome back to another year of Practicing Public Relations.Com.
I apologize for the recent delay in updating this site.
As you may already know, since I retired from university teaching I gradually dialed down the frequency of the updates. They had occurred weekly, or sometimes even more frequently, when I was teaching full-time. But, in the years after my retirement, I gradually began to space them out until they were occurring every 6-8 weeks. And, that was the schedule I maintained for several years, right up until the end of 2023.
Now, as I'm starting to work on the latest update, it's been three months since the last one, and I have no one to blame but myself. Nor can I offer a dramatic explanation or point to any single happening that caused it. It was just due to a convergence of random circumstances in my day to day life that kept me from focusing and working to update the site.
I apologize if that delay has frustrated you. And, I want you to know that I have made a firm New Year's Resolution not to let it happen again. I will strive to be more conscientious and to stick to my goal of updating this website at least every 6-8 weeks, if not more frequently.
So, let's get to it.

This website initially supported the public relations courses I taught at Northern Kentucky University. Now that I'm retired, it's become a supplementary "textbook" at scores of other schools and is often used by public relations practitioners who are preparing for professional accreditation or certification.
