My name is Madison Barnes, and I am a sophomore at Grand Valley State University. I study political science and public relations, and I am also a member of the NCAA D2 lacrosse team at GV. I am also Columbus, Ohio native (Go Bucks!). I am passionate about politics, sports, hating the city of Pittsburgh, cacti and many other things- I like to consider myself a very enthusiastic and passionate person.

This is my course blog for my Technology in Advertising and Public Relations (CAP 105) class. For this course, I have been assigned to write blog posts that cover various aspects of the advertising/PR fields, showcase multimedia content that I have created, among other functions. This is my first semester as an advertising/PR student, so working on this course blog also is providing an opportunity for me to learn about the field and attain more practice with writing and using WordPress as a communication medium.

As I foray onto my first journey into the world of blogging, feel free to reach out to me with any advice, questions, comments or just to say hello through my contact page. I am always looking to learn something new or make new connections!
