Social Media

It’s been a tough week with harsh outcomes, so a time of rest and reflection was called for – and it’s all only now, making sense to me.

Lower ground hasn’t fared much better where winds reached anything up to that. As  expected, Twitter went daft and soon we had pictures and […]

Recently I attended a local E-Business event at the Menzies Hotel (pronounced Ming-iss) in North Ayrshire which focused on social media and how we, as busy business owners, should be participating in what’s being termed a ‘revolution’ in marketing. The event was organised by North Ayrshire Council. Opening the morning session after everyone had their […]

Hello folks, 2012 is going to be my year – for those who don’t already know I was born in the year of the Dragon, the only mythological character in the Chinese horoscope system which only comes around every 12 years.
