We communicate, but do we really communicate?

I'm sure there are some very respectable people out there that are paid plenty to advise others on how the future generations will communicate. Well I am one number that will not be following fashion trends in communication like all the other sheep out there.

I'm sick and tired of people using these forms of "communication" on university computers. Professional agencies have made these sites unattainable, I spoke to a friend at Freud Communications and his office has banned these sites. Why cant we do the same at university?

I have lived a very social life thus far and I seem to be getting further enraged by the day. Why must we bog up time and energy talking to people who we may not really care about. If you use facebook or any other "social" networking site, I challenge you today to answer this question - have you used these forms of media away from your personal PC and/or have you used these media to talk to someone who you do not rank as a loved one or a good friend?

If you have your hacking me off and wasting other people's time, space and energy. Sorry.


Souper Men!

My first news release aimed at regional coverage has made print
(Yorkshire Evening Post). I feel like a freelance practitioner, very cool.

P.S any male freelance PR practitioners out there please contact me, I'm writing a feature on a related topic and would love the opportunity to ask you some questions.


New Ideas Please........

TV channels are feeding us with nothing but old crap. Re-runs of Top Gear, Who's Line is it anyway?, Family Fortunes, and Wheel of Fortune to name just a few are clogging up telly. New channels such as "Dave", "Dave+1", "Challenge" etc are just plowing out old tripe, and we are watching it. There is simply not anything else being made that is good enough anymore, so we turn to old classics.

Music? Well lets look at the charts. Spice Girls and TakeThat number one and number two. Boyzone are getting back together, Westlife have just released "Home" their third cover in a row and All Saints are also coming back soon.

We are in a drought of new and exciting entertainment. Can anyone change this? Not even Simon Cowell's best efforts this year look like raising a single eyebrow.


Beginners Luck?

My first ever news release for my first client has attracted some great coverage. Katie Baldwin at Yorkshire Post has agreed to run the story and everyone at Soupa seems very excited. The new company approached me in aid of some exposure for their company, and hopefully The Yorkshire Post will do just the job.

Soupa deliver a range of products and are worth checking out if you are in need of a new healthily outlook on life. Look out for related coverage to follow shortly this week.
