Because my daughter keeps asking why I make her read during the summer, I’ve assigned myself a summer reading project.
Over the next next couple of months I’ll be visiting every blog and website listed on All Top’s PR page.
When I find something interesting…I’ll share.
If I find something that isn’t interesting…I’ll probably share.
When I find something I agree with…I’ll comment and share.
If I find something I disagree with…you guessed it, I’ll comment and share.
I’ll read them all. Along the way I expect to find some new favorites and learn something. Now, I better go check in on my daughter’s reading assignment.

While anything published on the Internet can be seen and preserved forever that doesn’t mean that you need to over think every written word in fear of changing your mind down the road. Read more…

Perspective is everything. Sometimes you need to stop doing something to really miss it. Spending a month away from this blog provided an opportunity to recharge, refresh and re-examine why I’m doing this. It’s like the board runner that experiences an injury only to realize how much they miss running after all.
I started this blog several months ago because in my role as a PR / communications professional I was advising clients about blogs and social media, so I decided that there was no better way to provide authoritative advice than doing it myself.
