Postcard from Vancouver – bad luck travels in threes

12 April 2011 Away we go

I‘m laughing at your comments about the teaser ending to yesterday’s post. Hey, you think I haven’t learned a thing or two about story-telling and the value of a hook after all these years? Heh!

11 April 2011 Away we go

Tuesday marked the second day of my trip to Vancouver, and also the whole reason I was there in the first place — to give a presentation at a conference about social media in government and how we use social media at Army News. I was keen to give the presentation. So keen, in fact, […]

2 April 2011 Editorial asides

Some time today, the 500,000th visitor will drop by the blog. Half a million hits? Never would have guessed it in a million years. Also? Never would have guessed I’d make it to 1 951 posts or 24 570 comments either! I don’t watch the stats as obsessively as I did when I first started […]

I‘m still waiting for details on exactly how the Fisher-Price blog program will work out, but I keep getting amazing packages in the mail from my new besties at Fisher-Price and Mom Central Canada. First, it was this fun set of boxes full of a few of the toys that were used during the photo […]
