Social Media Saturation?

Lots of businesses are telling people to “Like them on Facebook”. We are witnessing an evolution of sorts where many of these same businesses are posting longer social media promotions within their print and web advertising. They want you to Like us on Facebook, Tweet us on Twitter, see some pics on Snapchat and Instagram.

Fully Completely. A brilliant musical portrait of Canada

I remember when The Tragically Hip’s masterpiece was released. Through the music video for “Courage” I was hooked. This was a need to own album. I respected The Hip somewhat to this point but could never really get into the previous records. As “Courage” continued in heavy rotation on Much Music, I became more interested […]

Writing – A Daily Need To Observe

This great pic is of a peaceful cottage where I spent part of a long early fall weekend. The place overlooked waters heavily frequented by seals and scallop dragging boats.

It all comes back

A few weeks away from the grind is always good. Come to think of it, even a few days away can help to regulate life. When I was down south I initially planned to work a little each day as and if I felt like it. A large notebook would be all I needed. If […]

Blogstorming

A few weeks ago I was working on the content pool for the upcoming weeks. Trying to sort out which ideas would work well and what kinds of things I might want to talk about. Somewhere in the recent past I was in a Twitter exchange with S. Usher Evans (Follow her on Twitter @s_usherevans) […]
