Blogging for the Busy Professional Part 2 – How to Efficiently Convert Ideas into Posts

In Part 1 of this series, I provided some suggestions on where to quickly find content inspiration. But being able to source great ideas for blog posts on the fly won’t help you save time if you get bogged down by the rest of the writing process.

The “Blogs Are Dying” Debate Continues…

My online routine was turned upside-down the other week when my usual “dose of pop culture” from the highly-visited Gawker.com was interrupted by a new site format. After months of knowing what to expect from the pop culture blog – a front page of witty headlines and paragraph posts and pictures (contained perfectly in rectangular […]

Hitting The Road to SXSW

Greetings! I’m Wade Rockett from the Weber Shandwick Seattle office.

Walmart: Connecting the Dots

My son loves Walmart.  When asked why, the answer is a no-brainer. “Because it has a lot of stuff.”  What kind of stuff? “Video games and food and cell phones — a lot of video games.”  What kind of food? “Cereal, snacks, and broccoli and fruit.” Broccoli and fruit?

BYU PRSSA Students Visit Weber for a Sneak Peek at Agency Life

It seems like just yesterday I was in college (Go Dawgs!)…equally nervous and excited about graduating and entering the “real world.” And while it has been much longer than just yesterday (nine years ago if you must know), meeting last Thursday with a group of bright, eager college students from BYU-Idaho at the Weber Seattle […]
