Insta Insta Read all about it…

I will never forget eating dinner with several of my younger friends early last year. We were eating dinner and talking about social media when one said to me, “Facebook is dead. All the cool people use Instagram.” Immediately,I started using Instagram more. Who doesn’t want to be cool?

Let’s get blogging…

So, as you can see, there are all types of blogs. You do not have to be a certain kind or fit into a particular category to be successful. Producing new content drives traffic.

Communication vs. Media Planning

In the mid-1990’s the world of advertising, public relations, and communication began to see a shift in the way communication and media planning were developed. 

That’s how the cookie crumbles…

What do I buy based on the brand alone? What company has reached me on such a level that I would forgo saving my family money? What do I love?
