Monday.

6 Feb

It’s almost 1am and I can’t sleep. I am tired and I feel like the weekend is not enough since I worked on a Sunday instead of chilling with the family.

I hope I could be like you, a blogger, who does not waste a day without posting for his/her readers. More than that, for his/her soul that craves being heard.

It’s Monday. For sure it’s going to be busy but I hope I get the chance to write a post about my day even for a couple of minutes.

Blogging from my side of the globe,

PR Gone Digital

1 Apr

What better way to usher in Monday Madness than an entry about a topic so close to my heart: public relations (PR). If you are a marketing or marcom practitioner like me, then you already know what PR is. But for those who are unsure of what it really means or what it actually does to a company, a brand or a person, read on and you might find some useful information on PR. Continue reading
