A year of blogging about PR and Social Media

Today is my one year anniversary of blogging about public relations and social media trends.

I want to take this opportunity to repost some of my favorite blog posts that I have written as well as post your favorites. I’d also like to thank my guest bloggers from this past year (Kay Ross, Daryl James, and Carol Sunnucks). They took the time to write a post when they didn’t have to. Of course I’d also like to thank YOU, the reader!


My favorite posts:

    Gotta love search traffic that has absolutely no interest in your content. The other day a new visitor found my blog after a Google image search for dear skull. Not deer skull, mind you. Dear skull. He left unfulfilled by an image of Hamlet addressing the skull of Yorick. Oops!
