New Year, New Venture, New Blog

Happy New Year! I’m quite excited to announce the launch of Clairemont Communications. This is a dream come true for me, and I hope you’ll click through to see the new Clairemont site. Also, while the blog will still be called blah2voila (and we’ll be applying a B2V approach to client work… email me if you want to know more!) it will be housed at clairemontcommunications.com moving forward.  Thanks to those of you who have already expressed words of congrats, love and support!

Clairemont Communications takes a tactics-agnostic approach to devising PR and marketing strategies using both traditional — media relations and event planning, for example — and new tools such as social networking. The difference? Product sketches that turn into top sellers. Campaigns that move consumers from couches to action. Jump starting a start-up to make it a recognized brand. Upholding the reputation of a tried and true company so shareholders continue to hold a special place in their hearts for it year after year.


Happy Holidays and Merry Myrtle!

Myrtle Never Threw Away Her Postcards -- 1 in a series of 80+

Gertrude bragged a bit about her travels while Myrtle stayed at home.

To preview a series of posts I have planned for 2010, and to wish you a fabulous holiday season, I share with you a postcard sent more than 30 years ago from Germany to Myrtle’s mailbox in Illinois. I love a good hand-written note, and am also amused that I can share a form of communication as traditional as a postcard with so many people through new forms of communications. I hope you will enjoy! Happy Holidays!
