Blue sky thinking #Sunday #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I allow you into the labyrinth of neural pathways that is my brain and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? I’m still doing social media stuff and trying to share pictures of the community I live in that show it in a positive light. I could do dark industrial pictures of the Black Country but we now have nature reserves and we even have the Black Country forest! Times change and there is no point getting stuck in the past. Industry belongs to a bygone age, we are now producing different things and it can be more fun and be more creative. Anyway, I’m now into blue sky thinking.

Social media and blogging channels #media

It is difficult to engage with users on social media and it is even harder to engage with readers with a blog. To engage with readers with a blog you have to write about subjects they are interested in, or are passionate about. Something quite personal that they identify with is even better.

Wednesbury BID – Business Improvement District #Wednesbury

It’s Wednesday and so, as usual, I’m writing about the town I have always lived in; Wednesbury! I have good news this week because we are finally going to start getting the Wednesbury Business improvement District off the ground. It will be funded initially by the businesses in the town centre but that is just the beginning for Wednesbury BID.

Graphic design using PhotoScape

I’ve been using PhotoScape to do some graphic design to publicise a few events. It is fairly easy and very effective. You can not only tell people about your event but show them the location with a picture. Today, I’m doing a photo shoot to raise money for Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital and so designed a graphic to publicise it.

a walk in the park

It’s Sunday morning again and so once again I let you into the innermost recesses of my mind and share my thoughts with you on this sunny Sunday morning. I am, of course, thinking about the weather, we have more showers forecast. I want to go out and take photographs.  A walk in the park? Maybe not…  (more…)


A Scrooge-like Christmas? #ramble

People haven’t been spending in the shops this week even though stores are cutting prices and having early sales. We do have official austerity and the poorest in society have been hard hit by government policies. (more…)


Santa on social media #Christmas

This week I’ve photographed a Christmas lunch for the elderly and when Santa’s sleigh passed by my house, I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures. The pictures of both events went out quickly on Facebook and helped promote the events. It raised awareness so people feel like it’s Christmas. It has added to all the other Christmas promotions too.

THOW

I designed a new banner for our Facebook history page this morning. Social media is all about engaging with members or fans and keeping interest alive. It’s the same if you run a community group or a small business. (more…)


Life: diversity

Do you remember Christmas when you were a kid? I still remember the things associated with Christmas. We had tangerines at Christmas, now it’s satumas. Whatever happened to tangerines? We had nativities at school and we learnt Christmas carols. Childhood is about learning, the knowledge we gain  is the foundation of our lives. (more…)



How to start a blog

SNOW LAKE 036

If you want to start a blog, you have to think about a few things. You are going to be publishing articles and maybe photographs too. You can choose a number of ways to do it. I use WordPress, but I have used Blogger. You also have to think about who will read your blog. Who will your articles appeal to?

Writers, artists and photographers

If you are being creative either as a writer, artist or photographer, you want people to see what you do. Many of my friends are writers and trying to get people to buy your novel is about making a name for yourself. People buy books for many reasons. They like the look of the cover or the blurb on the back sounds good. The most important reason people buy a book though is they have heard of the author. So many of my friends are trying to make a name for themselves and what better way than on the internet? (more…)
