Bubblan som sprack - Isabella Löwengrips kriskommunikation genom bloggen
Sammanfattning: The research conducted in The Bubble That Burst – Isabella Löwengrip’s Crisis Communication Through Blog Posts aims to answer how Isabella Löwengrip attempted to save both her and her companies images during a crisis in the fall of 2019. Benoit’s Image Repair Theory and Goffman’s Self-Presentation Theory were combined to create the framework of this study. The material studied were blog posts uploaded onto her personal blog that mainly concerned the crisis during the months of October and November 2019. To demonstrate how the crisis evolved, additional material was added from February 2020. A textual rhetorical analysis method was used to investigate how Löwengrip aimed to persuade the blog’s readers that both she and her companies are still trustworthy. The results showed that Löwengrip used several Image Repair as well as rhetorical strategies. Löwengrip also changed her self-presentation during the crisis. Furthermore, it demonstrates how aware she is about her image. Additionally, the personal character of the blog medium makes the crisis communication more emotionally based and relationship building than traditional Image Repair and crisis communication efforts.
