Good articles, enjoyed reading them. The bad apples one really shows how well you have to toe the line. Don’t even take the slightest chance of rubbing the wrong way someone higher up.

Also like the newbie thrils article. There is nothing like the first time anyway, no matter what it is in life, lol.


Very interesting and informative post! Helpful to all those newbies in social media. Good job! Thanks for sharing this..

I like this list of funniest QR codes! :) So far I have seen only few places where these codes are used perfectly and where people are really interested to check what these codes does.
This year I got calendar from one of my clients and each month has it’s QR codes and each month they leave a message in the site, so calendar don’t get old but it can be up-to-date even after 11-12 months or so.
