Social Media in NL Politics

Mike Connors of NTV fame contacted me a couple weeks ago to have a sit down for a piece he was working on. He was interested in hearing my thoughts on the affect of social media in the coming provincial election and of course I jumped at the opportunity to have a gab. I just wanted to take a second to thank Mike for that opportunity. It was a great piece he put together and I suggest everyone check it out, which you can do by going here.

What's best is that not only did I get to sit down and have a great chit-chat with Mike, but we also received a nod to the NL BlogRoll in the process. You gotta love that. Thanks again Mike and NTV!

There's a 2nd part to this story which aired two nights later. You can watch that part by going here.

Unexpected Hiatus

In my world (like most others I would assume), when offline life becomes busy, the online world tends to suffer. This is exactly the case for my absence as of late. I shocked myself into posting this update this evening when I realized that I haven't posted anything in nearly a month now, not even the Blog of the Week. And here I was doing so well this year too, having missed only one Sunday since 2011 began. That has to be a record since I started the initiative so I should be happy about that I s'pose...

Anyway, while summer is normally a more active time for me regardless, it turns out that this summer happens to be a very busy period at work as well. It's good times when work is busy don't get me wrong but, I am kind of bummed that I haven't been able to keep up things around these parts. There's just not enough time in the day, and the time we have certainly does fly by in a hurry. To be honest, I'm not sure where the last few weeks have gone.

So, when I noticed the date of the last post, I felt I should let any frequent visitors know that everything I've been discussing over the past few months is still being worked on whenever I possibly can: The awards will come, the Blog of Week's will continue and many new blogs will be added (and I do have many not added yet). Just bare with me, I'll get there.

In the meantime, you all be sure to unplug now and then as well. Go take some time to enjoy any sun you're lucky enough to get!
