Busy busy busy!!

I realised on Thursday (and I’ll tell you why in a mo) that I’ve not blogged in a while.

Why not?  Because I’ve been busy!

As a brief run-down, so you know I’m not just making excuses since I last blogged I have:

  • Enjoyed watching the views go up & up on Youtube for the Christmas show on Marlow FM I did with Mike Duckett of http://www.coachingforsuccess.co.uk/ – 69 views so far, so little old me is quite happy with that!  If you want a listen (it’s quite entertaining) go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I-Xnasc3sc on your next lunch break & prepare to be entertained.  How long will it take you to guess who the guest was?
  • Wrote a marketing strategy for a professional Institute – they wanted it partly to use as an aid in recruiting their new Marketing Manager – they liked it so much that they asked me to write the job spec & person spec, and then they asked me to take part in the whole recruitment process – challenging work but thoroughly enjoyable & delighted that they’ve made clear they want to put more work my way.
  • Went to Spain for 6 days.  It was work – honest!  OK, so I played some golf, ate some food, lounged around a bit too, but I was actually working with a business owner I know out there, helping him primarily with his first real foray into social media.
  • And speaking of social media, we had Vicky White of http://www.outsourcepaservices.co.uk/ in the studio.  As the web address implies, she’s a PA you can hire by the hour or the day, but one of her key areas of expertise is social media, which she proved a number of times on air.  We’d heard that a number of Beatles songs had social media references within the lyrics – hear Vicky’s explanations at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsAsKkqGGug .  Her thoughts on Google + (perhaps more positive than yours!) are at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-pdSGMMaOo – have a listen – it may well give you food for thought!
  • Mike and I often try to out-do eachother with absurd but true topics – to hear Mike telling us about a treadmill with a desk built in, so you can walk and work at the same time, have a listen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shGjyc4Cba8 – I think he might win!

Oh, and what prompted me to get back into blogging?  Vicky, of course.  No point talking about social media without doing it!
