So, I haven't posted for ages. This is mainly because I've been so busy at Fleishman-Hillard, I really have had very little time for posting. This is obviously a good thing - certainly better than not having enough business coming in - but something always has to 'give', and in my case, it's been the … Continue reading Busy busy busy
I've been asked more than once recently "How did you get into social media - because I want to." If you're a wannabe (see right), my topline answer would just be "Do it". I mean, it's all out there, most of it's free, accessible and ubiquitous by definition. But that would be rude. So, off … Continue reading So, you want to get into social media?
I recently noticed, with horror, that most of my posting of late - in fact, the vast majority - has been simply stuff I've bookmarked on del.icio.us, pumped across into my blog. I've decided this is not what my blog is for. So, I now just have a nice, unobtrusive feed to the right of … Continue reading No more deli.cio.us linkblogging from me
So, as one of my 'things to do' before I start at Fleishman Hillard*, I've been going through my RSS feeds in Google Reader. A very timely post about organising RSS feeds came along on the PNeo blog reminding that I needed to do this, and how I'd in fact planned to do it some … Continue reading Feed housekeeping yields interesting insights

I stumbled into it … Continue reading “You have control” – “I have control”
source » Visit http://mouthtomouthcomms.wordpress.com/ to get the inside track on Word-of-mouth marketing. This is a new blog in the firmament by a colleague of mine. I'm hoping he'll help me move away from the linkblog darkside, which I appear to have been doing lately. OK, so he hasn't actually posted anything yet but there's no … Continue reading Welcome a new blogger to the blogosphere
A week ago I published the results of tag analysis of the blogs in the PR Friendly Index, and then looked at the frequencies of usage of those tags. So, let's now look at who is talking - or, at least, tagging - about what, exactly. Click the blog link to go to the blog, … Continue reading What are we talking about? Part III.
source » While on holiday, sipping a Piña Colada, I had a sudden thought (well, it happened to Newton, right?) I've been doing a lot of thinking about keywords recently, and I suddenly wondered what the keywords in the PR Friendly Index would look like. That is, take them all, and plot them in some … Continue reading What are we talking about?
source » Twitterfeed is quite cool. You can use it to take any RSS feed and push it into your Twitter account. So, I've set it up to cross-post when I add something to my blog, plus randomly pick something out of my PR feed every six hours. In this way, I'm using Twitter to … Continue reading Not so much a Twitterer as a Twit
