I went for my daily cycle last Saturday and intended it would be a longer one than usual, given the fact that I had more time at the weekend. I went to Kinnegad, and from there into Edenderry and home from there. But I did a bike vlog experiment, which you can take a look… Continue reading Bike vlog and a weekly video show?
There is a lot to be said for any small business owner concentrating on the social media platform(s) that are right for their business. This will depend on three factors: An enormous amount of time can be spent flogging a dead horse in this regard. But finding the right channel is a valuable use of… Continue reading Which (if any) social media sites are effective for your business?
The jury is still out regarding my Twitter experiment of posting only Tweets without outbound links in the last week. The results are mixed. To be clear, I posted mainly threads, some as long as 10 tweets/posts. No primary posts with links, although I did post a link in some of the reply (or later)… Continue reading My Twitter experiment
I published a video this week about the valuable criminal law lesson you can learn from Donald Trump. I shared it on Facebook, as I do with all my videos, and received a good deal of comment about it. That is not unusual. But I received a comment this morning as follows: How do you… Continue reading How do you respond to a comment like this?
The scenes outside the Dáil yesterday, with the return of TDs to the Dáil, were disgraceful. What Miriam Lord described as a “micro-rabble” engaged in aggressive, jostling behaviour with the elected representatives and the Gardai and prevented TDs and Dáil workers from leaving the premises of our national parliament for hours yesterday evening. This crowd,… Continue reading Besmirching the tricolour at our national parliament
I find it hard to believe the level of support that Donald Trump still commands given everything we now know about Trump and what type of individual he is. Back in 2016 a person would have the excuse of forming an opinion based only on Trump’s involvement in the “reality” television series, “The Apprentice”. That… Continue reading And still they support Trump
Trump, faced with four indictments and ninety-one counts of criminal charges, gave an interview last week on a programme called “Meet the Press”. Given the magnitude of Trump’s narcissism and the size of his ego he could not help himself in the interview. When asked was the insurrection on January 6th his idea or that… Continue reading What you can learn from Donald Trump about criminal law
I am going to embark upon a radically different Twitter strategy from today. It is an experiment to see what the outcome will be based on posting on Twitter without links in the first Tweet. In other words, I will post a text-based Tweet with no external link or a thread-long or short-with any link… Continue reading A radically different Twitter strategy
I have notice lately that the reach of my Tweets on Twitter seems to have reduced significantly. I read an updated e-book on the topic yesterday and my observation was confirmed by the author of the book who states that Tweets with external links have been hit hard with recent changes in the Twitter algorithm.… Continue reading Twitter reach
Seán Quinn is hustling his book, a memoir, at the moment. He was interviewed on RTE Primetime and elsewhere last week and had some sort of launch party at the Slieve Russell hotel. He claims that he wants his side of the story to be told, arguing that it has not yet been put into… Continue reading The problem with Seán Quinn’s side of the story
