A year ago today I started writing on the this blog.
Variously egged on and inspired by @comms2point0 @danslee @darrencaveney @wadds and @weeklyblogclub 12 months has gone by in the blink of an eye.
5,400 views and 161 comments later I’ve got know to many new faces through blogging and hopefully shared some useful information too.
Having said that, it seems you’re mostly interested in irreverant parenting chat, rather than my in-depth anaysis of the changing communications landscape.
The two most viewed posts (by miles) were:
Despite these laughs at my expense I hope that I’ve also provided some useful professional discussion that adds to the vibrant debate around PR and social media.
A few of my favourites from the past 12 monts were:
- How the way people use services online is changing
- Ten thoughts on social media
- The importance of time offline
- How to use content marketing in a changing online world
- Advice on public speaking
- The CIPR Northern conference
- Two wheel city
- One small step
- How we use Pinterest
- Social media and the snow
Thanks again for readig, commenting, liking and sharing.

Happy blog day! Some great links to posts I hadn’t read before here, thanks for a year of sharing and coolness.
Thanks Helen, that’s so kind of you. I’ve really enjoyed blogging so I’m glad that people are enjoying reading it too.
The professional posts about PR and social media are very professional, interesting and useful. Your other posts are wonderfully human – the sense of the reality of your human being-ness comes through very strongly. The bit that people can find so difficult about social media is the being human but professional at the same time. I’m not suprised people responded most to the human.
Well done for keeping blogging for a year! I know it hasn’t always been easy, and I look forward to reading more (I know you have lots more posts to write yet).
I think Janet’s point nails it – the informality in your other posts is lovely to read. I must admit, it is odd these worlds of personal and professional colliding, but having said that, I’m blogging as part of a project, so I’m perhaps not subject to the same levels of personal scrutiny. Great work!
Thanks for such kind and positive comments. Really appreciate it
You’re too kind Janet. Thanks for your support since I started blogging. We must have a WBC meet up some time.
