The idea behind this meme is to reveal your media consumption habits for a week, and so far it’s been interesting to see what people are reading/watching/listening to beyond the usual PR-related media that we have in common.
The past seven days haven’t been particularly typical for me. A bank holiday and spending most evenings writing an assignment for my CIPR Diploma have meant my media has been a bit different to normal.
What I’ve read
- The Guardian as daily newspaper of choice when time allows (less often than I’d like).
- Medway Messenger, Kent on Sunday and Medway News/Standard for keeping an eye on council coverage.
- Whitstable Gazette for knowing what’s going on around home.
- Catching up with a backlog of trade publications, including PR Week, Marketing, Marketing Week and New Media Age.
- Exploring Public Relations by Tench & Yeomans and a handful of other PR textbooks.
- A few pages of Not Quite World’s End by John Simpson that I got for Christmas.
What I’ve listened to
- BBC Radio Five Live on the way to and from work.
- Radio 4 on Wednesday morning as the council’s decision to progress a planning application for a new coal-fired power station was getting coverage.
- Invicta FM while doing the washing-up and generally tidying.
- Some early 90’s happy house mix tapes on my MP3 player while out running.
What I’ve watched
Not a lot. In fact I can’t think I’ve watched any TV in the last week except the odd bit of CBBC when the boys were watching.
What I’ve surfed
A lot – too many to list. As well as 300ish RSS feeds that I’m finally caught up with, I seem to surf the internet day in day out whether on the PC or on my mobile. Sites I seem to frequent most often are news websites, PR academic websites, blogs and running/cycling sites.
