40 More Things

One of my Twitter friends has the meat of the story for this blog post - thanks Pete at Mashable!  This looks like a very inclusive article dealing with all current social media portals.

Me?  I'm still waiting for my jet pack!

Happy New Year

Sorry it's been so long since the last post, but you know what the holidays will do to the most thoughtful plans - turn them into mincemeat pie!  But here we are again thinking about social media and public relations. 

On thing that might be helpful to you whether you do PR for other people or for your own endeavors, is to pick up a couple of copies of your local newspapers, daily and weekly.  Now, get out your laptop or just a chunk of paper and list the headlines of the feature articles, the reporter's name and a short synopsis of the story.  This is a great way to keep track of what people are writing about in the print world. 

You can also do this with your local news stations - TV of course since the news on radio is nonexistent these days due the FCC  having no power anymore.  But don't let me get up on that soapbox.
