Another one for the books

A month or so ago, I created these bookmarks/postcards for Daisy Whitney for her upcoming Starry Nights book and I thought I’d share them with you. To be honest, I’m pretty proud of these and I was pretty happy to work with Daisy once again. We do make a good team.

Daisy, a pink logo and NAB

A few weeks ago Daisy Whitney asked me to come up with a logo for her involvement at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Expo.  Daisy  is a partner in the Broadband Theater Sessions. This is a brand new exhibit area for the NAB Show:

The newest exhibit area at the NAB Show focuses on broadband-enabled TVs, online video, mobile broadband networks, platforms, set-top boxes, gaming, IP, streaming, advertising, monetization and the mavericks driving today’s media.

Exciting times for new media indeed!

I’m happy to announce that the logo is up and it looks great (although a little small).

A Naughty Accomplishment

Very happy about this mention on Suzanne Young’s Blog.  Suzanne is a young adult novelist and brilliant scientist. Not really. But she is a former middle school teacher turned zookeeper (mother).  That’s all according to her bio. (hee hee)

Daisy Whitney asked me to design a T-Shirt for Suzanne’s upcoming The Naughty List young adult novel and the rest (as they say) is history.

Suzanne’s book is due out on February 4, 2010! That’s really soon, so save your pennies and buy it!!

I am tremendously honored to be part of it (even if it is like the size of a grain of sand).

Woot!

my thoughts

A look ahead and some reflection back

I like to look back on a year; as we all do I imagine, and closely review the lessons 2008 offered me. Hopefully, I was paying attention and learned something! I hate learning something twice.

2008 brought personal and professional challenges for me but one thing remained constant – my passion for the web.

Being able to reach out to my Twitter and Facebook communities and connect with people; special people (@pbaileymtl, @tanmcg and @daisywhitney), was invaluable to me in 2008.

2009 holds many secrets (personally, I’m hoping all good) and probably even more challenges (again, good ones!).  Economic volatility will undoubtedly force social media to the forefront of necessary tools in everyone’s arsenal. Being connected and staying connected will become key in 2009. Relying on your Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, and FriendFeed communities will become a lifeline to keeping up with this fast moving world. Content will be key, as it will distinguish you from the rest. So consider it to be open season on creativity!

All I can say is Thank You for your eyes during the year and for your comments especially. It proves to me that my WordPress stats have human beings behind them. I need to know you are out there and you need to know that I appreciate the time spent with me.

Happy Holidays!

Cheers for 2009!!

Hang on it’s coming!

Great report from Daisy Whitney – As usual!  This weeks New Media Minute – check it out.

It’s clear:  in order to get through these tough times, there’s a definite need to create solid content, innovate, be more efficient, be budget-savvy, connect the dots and fill in the gaps.

What’s your plan?
