Digital Marketing Series: Commencement 2015

Maximizing reach So much of advertising depends on reach. It doesn’t matter what medium or channel you are considering.

Time lapse photography has occupied my attention for several years. The visual passing of time strikes a chord with the part of me that is in constant daydream mode.

Job Well Done

I recently got a tour of the new online catalog that our Extension office built. Essentially it houses all of their publications in one easy to navigate Drupal site.
