Take comfort from the Social Media political onslaught.

With the Dáil dissolved and a General Election set for the February 25th, we will undoubtedly see our political parties, supporters and candidates bombard us with leaflets, posters and billboards spewing out their plans, dreams and promises to win our votes. The trouble is they have a new tool to exploit, and that is ‘Social [...]

Time to face up to Facebook

It has taken a little while but we finally have a page on Facebook. The staff at Channelship, a web agency based in Dublin and London, made a video with ideas how we could use social media to market our company. They have helped us to realise that the projects that we work on are [...]

Back to the drawing board

The first spark of an idea or that sudden light-bulb moment usually involves scribbling a sketch and writing it down somewhere. Whether it’s a creative drawing or inventive concept we like to put pen to paper, to make sure we don’t loose the train of thought. This is the the beginning of design and many [...]

Apple iPad following our trend

It has arrived. The Apple iPad, no, that’s old news now. The media hype surrounding its launch has been disappointing, with many journalists and industry experts commenting that there is nothing really innovative about the device, and that it is just a super-sized version of the iPhone. Well, we do have something new and innovative, [...]

Early in the year, I wrote a post about the 3R’s, talking about the words “recession”, “redundancy” and “receivership”, and the fact that we were constantly hearing them from all sections of the media. Unfortunately, they are still words that are relevant today, but now there is a new “R” word on people’s lips: “Recovery”. [...]

The winning caption

We would like to congratulate Garman and Roseanne on their winning entry to the competition that we ran at the 2009 Blog Awards. It seems that he already has a grasp of “this reading and writing malarkey” and we hope that this will give him the encouragement to continue and follow in his mother’s footsteps [...]

Irish Blog Awards “The Winners”

From where I was sat, I could see the winners. Yes, there were the ones lucky enough to win an Award, but we were all winners, as it was a fantastic event. It was the first Blog Awards that I had attended, so I didn’t know what to expect as I only knew a handful [...]

Irish Blog Awards

We are pleased to be sponsoring a competition at this years Irish Blog Awards, being held at Cork International Airport Hotel. The event is promising to match the excitement and drama of the Oscar’s ceremony, who are conveniently having their show on Sunday to avoid clashing with the Cork event. The image is the front [...]

What the heck are you blogging about?

Blogs, Blogging and Blogger… what’s it all about? To start with, I don’t know, as I have only been writing small, and hopefully interesting polystyrene-related articles since January. The name blog is a shortened version of web log and is a on-line journal or diary where people post entries about their personal experiences, hobbies or [...]
