A lot of people liked my previous post on writing content for your blog. Here’s a couple more things that I’ve thought of in the meantime which I feel could be added to my initial list. 1. Use questions in post titles. There’s nothing better than asking a question to stimulate discussion. The more comments [...]

Stephen Davies tells me that he is unable to post comments on this blog using Firefox. I seem to be able to post them using Explorer or Safari. If anyone else has any problems, email me – smiarasATgmail.com

Assumptions are the termites of relationships – Henry Winkler PR practitioners are starting to pitch bloggers as well as journalists to write about their clients these days, not always with great success. One of the topics I’ve seen come through in feedback is that how can a Public Relations practitioner pitch a blogger, if they [...]

There are three types of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics – Mark Twain 60% of Irish people don’t use email according to the latest JNLR figures. Personally I think that the research must have been carried out poorly. Anyone in a white collar job has an email address so i honestly can’t see how [...]

Anybody remotely interesting is mad, in some way or another The ‘In fact ah‘ website has posted a video clip of Eamonn Dunphy’s rant on RTE about the Roy Keane saga.

Robert Scoble podcast interview

I forgot to mention that Tom Raftery has posted his podcast interview with Robert Scoble in advance of the IT@Cork annual technology and business conference. I won’t make the conference, but I’ll be down in Cork for the geek dinner with Scoble. Apart from the usual suspects, Hugh MacLeod and Tom Murphy will also be [...]

I’m going to the Irish Internet Awards tonight. Any other Irish bloggers going? I know Michele, John and Ed are. What I really want to know is whether dinner is a free-for-all or are we actually assigned seats? I haven’t worn the tux in a while so it’ll be a nice excuse to look like [...]

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them…Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them – Denis Watley I’m relatively new to the PR profession and one thing that’s taken me a [...]
