Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy

They say that the only thing we leave behind when we're gone, are the feelings and memories that we've entrusted with those we love. Sure, if we're smart and far more organised than me, we leave a will (note to self, organise will) and our possessions are divided up amongst our loved ones, but do they mean anything without those memories attached? I suspect not. And I guess that's our legacy. The things our friends learn from us, the things that our family takes from us; the lessons we … [Continue reading...]

Five tips for working with bloggers

Five tips for working with bloggers

A while ago I wrote a post about how bloggers could make some small changes to help them work with brands (if they so wanted). If you're interested, you can check it out here. Written with my PR hat on, there were some basic things, easy things to fix, that drive me nuts when I'm trying to organise blogger outreach campaigns. I did promise though, that I would take that hat off and swap it round, and give some tips back the other way. And after a week of less than fabulous pitches from PR … [Continue reading...]

The first week back is always hard

he first week back is always hard

The first week back at school after holidays is always hard. A return to routine, while welcome, is exhausting. Suddenly there is no option to take to bed with an iPad if the world gets too hard, days are long and they must be endured with all the social niceties that tend to drop to […]

Connectedness. Is it a good thing?

Connectedness. Is it a good thing

Last week I sat on a panel that spoke about social media and change. It’s a pretty broad topic, and we bounced about from change from an internal communications perspective, to change in the sense of organisational repositioning right through to the value that social media can bring in inspiring societal and political change. It […]

Getting organised

Getting organised

Half a year, more than half a year in fact, is done. We’ve broken the back of it. Winter solstice has been and gone, and winter school holidays finished. School tunics have been dry-cleaned, schools shoes shined and I even ironed (I know, I was surprised too) her school shirts. We’ve made some changes from […]

This tween world

This tween world

The squeal is ear piecing, as she storms from the room, slamming her bedroom door behind her. We look at each other, knowing that neither of us has any idea what’s going on. We wait. Maybe she’ll come out of her own accord. The squeals continue; it’s clear she’s trying to get our attention. Requests […]

It’s ok to not love motherhood. Really.

It's ok to not love motherhood.

I read an article a while ago about how to enjoy mothering more. How to love motherhood. There may have even been an exclamation mark, but then again, maybe that’s my memory adding that emphasis. I’m not going to link to it, because frankly, it was rubbish. There I said it. Rubbish. Because here’s the […]

So, you’re thinking of buying a bunny?

So, you're thinking of buying a bunny

So you’re thinking of buying a bunny? Or maybe you’re just lusting over the cuteness that our bunny brings and want to know more. Either way, this post is for you. We bought our first bunny, Max, a few years ago on a whim. An impulse buy in time for Easter. Probably not the right […]

My name is Renee and I need more sleep.

My name is Renee and I need more sleep.

When Poss can’t sleep we look for ways to make it easier. Some work. Some don’t. And frustratingly they can be the same ones just on a different day, or with a different anything. And while we’re back on a good dose of Melatonin, sleep is still a battle that I feel like we’re losing. When […]

Inheriting a digital world

Inheriting a digital world

Today is international social media day (or #SMDay if you’re on Twitter). It’s a thing that Mashable dreamed up. I heard someone say it’s a bit like Hallmark coming up with Mother’s Day, but hey, it’s a day to celebrate all things social, so you know #totesawesome. I went along to an event at a […]
