Teaching Through Social Media

I came across an amazing article through Ragan.com about a recent movement made by a Buffalo hospital to teach children about the fight against cancer.

Say Cheese!

I came across this comical yet truthful video on Ragan.com. I know we all can relate to this subject: corporate photos. Whether it be for a website or just to have on file, they are awkward!

The store’s public relations … Continue reading Wal-Mart Begins to Blog

Twitter: Weather at Your Fingertips

New to the “tweeting” world, I hadn’t a clue what exactly the purpose of a Twitter was. It wasn’t until the fateful February snowstorm that I learned of its capabilities. Snow was falling hard that second week in February, and I was ironically snowed in with a broken television. I had only my laptop and … Continue reading Twitter: Weather at Your Fingertips
