    Hi Deirdre,

    I also think a lot of it is down to the rate at which young and old dogs can learn new tricks and repeat them in succession. With so much out there – basics aside – it can be quite challenging getting ones head around all the new outlets out there.

    I get the traditional media (print/paper mags), but am thoroughly excited at the challenge of getting stuck into communicating via social networks, and other new media in all its formats.

    On the social networking element, what would be great almost is an RSS feed for all of these networks…i find it staggering how one has to belong to many, or even just a few, and so being able to manage these from a personal point of view would be great. And also for clients.

    BTW – my book has not yet arrived. Ol’ Amazon is delayed…doh!!!! I seriously can’t wati! Take care!

    Hi David,

    I’m excited that you are going to read my book and can’t wait to hear your feedback. I appreciate you commenting on my blog. Yes, all of this social media is fantastic, but it’s a lot to absorb and that affects the rate that all dogs learn new tricks (regardless of age). I find myself getting lost in the different social networks, however, there is one site that I find very helpful when I want to review my favorite blogs in a category. Alltop ( collects stories from “all the top” sites on the web. This really helps and saves me time. The traditional media is very easy to “get.” Hopefully, the more we learn and use the new social media tools, in a few years, we’ll be saying the same thing!

    Deidre !!!

    Very true, our global beliefs are merely social conditioning, unconscious creations/creators, and need to be identified and turned into powerful metaphors that serve us.
    Thank you for reminding me to pay more attention to my beliefs and inner dialogue.
    i’m going to check out and spend some time looking through yr site here.

    Hi Jared!!!

    So glad you found my blog. Thanks for commenting. If I were to conform to society’s beliefs, then I’d be considered an old dog too, having practiced PR for 20 years. You’re absolutely right…we should listen more to our inner dialogue. My inner self tells me I’m able to use the best of my traditional knowledge and move forward with new and exciting technology to benefit my career in PR.

    Hope you enjoy the other posts 🙂
