If, like me, you are not one for going to Networking meetings then Social Media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are perfect to network online. It’s like constant networking every time you tweet or post a status update. They have certainly worked for me although it does take commitment and patience to build your network. It doesn’t happen overnight but hopefully these tips will get you started or suggest ideas you hadn’t thought of doing yet. It’s such a vast and probably never ending subject that I’ve had to split the post into two parts, first giving tips on how to Network on Twitter and Facebook. continue reading…

I had my few minutes claim to fame on the radio recently. For someone that can be quite shy normally and hide away I certainly surprised myself. continue reading…

You know that saying – “you learn something new every day” – well I guess as you get older there is maybe slightly less to learn within the life you are leading. But then add a new gadget into your life and there is definitely something new to learn, as I found out recently when asking for help with my iPhone on Twitter. And Twitter, as always, came to my rescue – the lovely people that helped are mentioned at the end. continue reading…

What may be thought of as a strange experiment was conducted recently in the bowels of RTE radio-land by @patomahony1. Six people were given laptops and connected up to their Twitter accounts and they took part in Twitterontrial; actually one of them was a Twitter newbie so he was there to take some convincing. continue reading…

You’ve decided to set up a limited company. Presumably you haven’t entered into this lightly and have taken advice on the requirements needed by the Companies Registration Office (CRO) and the Revenue from an accountant.  This post is explaining the possible ramifications of late filing of the company’s Annual Return and accounts in Ireland. If you wish to know more in-depth information about the Annual Return and accounts then please use this link to the CRO http://www.cro.ie/ena/annual-return.aspx continue reading…

Hi, it’s Monty the Cocker Spaniel again, and I’m speaking on behalf of us three dogs here in The Dog House.  Sian has put a fence up around our garden and a gate and we can’t get out. Can someone please come and save us? continue reading…

It’s Easter weekend. Four days holiday for me and I’m spending it at home just relaxing I hope. Or escaping to the beach for some dog walks.

Recently on a Friday I tweeted that I was looking forward to not leaving the house for the whole weekend.  Someone replied that that couldn’t be healthy. I can’t remember who it was now and that’s not important, everyone feels differently. However it got me thinking and this post was born. continue reading…

Following on from my recent blog post about Follow Fridays here is some information about Retweets on Twitter. I sometimes see people asking for a Retweet and it’s just not likely to happen I’m afraid. I’ve been asked about this a few times so I thought I’d explain in a bit more detail as it made me realise that it’s not always that simple or obvious. I covered a few things in my past blog posts but this is more in-depth. continue reading…

So it’s Mother’s Day. I’m in Ireland and my Mum is in Wales. I know I don’t get home often enough with one thing or another but we do speak every week and I know Mum will always be there when I phone. If she isn’t then I’m on to my brother (who lives next door to her) to check everything is ok. Mum will either be in with them or gone for a walk or popped down town to the shop or for tea with her “tea room” pals. I love the fact that at her age Mum is still going strong and keeps herself busy. I’m half her age and can’t be bothered sometimes. continue reading…

I’ve been asked a few times lately about some odds and ends on Twitter so I thought I’d explain in a bit more detail as it made me realise that it’s not always that simple or obvious. We all had to start somewhere plus isn’t it better if we can learn earlier rather than later what it’s all about? I covered a few things in my past blog posts but this is possibly more in-depth.  This is part one of a few blog posts about stuff I’ve been asked. continue reading…
