I’ve been a little busy recently, which has meant that poor FeedDemon is bursting at the seams [and causing me "Unread RSS-feed stress disorder" or UNRED].
However, far more distressing than unread RSS feeds, it appears that in the couple of weeks I have been less than attentive to the blogosphere, my career has disappeared.
Apparently PR is dead or dying.
Hold on… something about that theme is familiar.
Oh yes, now I know. People have been saying it over and over and over again for years and years and years. [Here’s a post from three years ago.]
You know what though?
To everyone’s disgust, we’re still here.
I work in Public Relations and myself and my colleagues aren’t dead. In fact I don’t think we’re even feeling unwell.
I think I will write a press release, print it off, put it in an envelope and send it by post. Then to round off the day I’ll go and talk to someone in person. I am so old-worlde…
I’ve tried to avoid the dead word but it simply won’t die, so in the interest of going with the flow, my new meme is:
"Bloggers talking off the top of their heads are Dead"
Unfortunately life is never that simple (or enjoyable) but one must fight fire with fire.
Anyhow hopefully I’ll have a job until Christmas, but if the bloggers are right it’ll be touch and go. [Apologies to my family in advance]

Now that’s the Christmas spirit….
