I know. Nearly two years since my previous blog post. Kind of a no-no in the online comms world, having a barely living blog as an advertisement for my comms services!
I could take the blog offline but there’s a heap of interesting stuff in here for you all to read.
So. Please. Browse and enjoy. And do as I say and not as I do, and keep your blog posts regular.
Regular posts are awesome as Google juice for the search engines. They help position you as a thought leader in your industry, and they keep a tidy front porch on your website.
Blogging: Keep it up or take it down is my advice, to everyone … but, er, yes, myself!
I’ve always had trouble cooking a poached egg: keeping its shape, stopping it sticking, fishing it out of the water — this week a recipe promising me the perfect poached egg (hallelujah!) appeared.

This is Luna, my part-German-pointer pup, back in March, at 12 weeks old.
She is quite a bit bigger now, still kind of goofy-looking and becoming much more knowledgeable about things.
Things? Well, after where the best cow pats are in the neighbour’s paddock (for, unfortunately, rolling on top of and snacking on), then also, how effective each of my commands are and which ones are easiest to ignore.
Luna likes my brand. It is a brand that says to her: affection, well-being, security and good food. But some of my carefully thought out marketing catch-phrases (well, ok, dog commands) don’t always get the correct response.
