Sunday Roundup – March 17

Busy week! Ching Chong Chinaman is  open, and The Whipping Man is in previews. Go see.

Upcoming things include The Charge of the Expormidable Moose (One Little Goat Theatre Company) and Sister Mary’s A Dyke?! (Cahoots Theatre Company). Small Print Toronto continues to be great  to work with, and we’re hard at work for online and new web stuff for OCAF.

Last week at the Sue Circle Ranch!

Laws of Motion, World Theatre Day, Mission Paradox

March 27 is World Theatre Day

Bits and Pieces For Friday, and Going Viral

The new Facebook page seems to be going well, garnering a steady stream of likes, and I’m happy to have a spot that is handy for all my clients reviews and bits and pieces so they don’t get lost on my personal page.

By now you may or may not have heard that Google is shutting down their Google reader function. While the headline is a bit much (I wasn’t shocked or enraged, felt it was a bit of a drag but am not taking to the streets), it does pose the question, “what do I use now?”

Some have suggested converting to email subscriptions.

So – if you follow me on Google reader, and want to switch to email subscription, there is a handy form on the side of the page you can input your email address into and I will welcome you cheerfully. Recommended by Brian @copyblogger:

Fair enough.

But  I get an awful lot of email a lot of the time and the Reader kept things that I wanted to hear about separate and there was no inbox overload or accidentally deleting something I wanted to read. More than often a Reader item goes straight to my bookmarks. And I bet I have readers in the same boat who just plain don’t want more things in their inbox.

You do have options. And over at Copy Blogger, Mr. Clarke has written a good article about them –  I myself signed up for Feedly and it’s pretty much a one click changeover.

That’s all for today – it’s a Sunday coffee and paperwork kind of day. Happy St. Patrick’s Day if you’re celebrating!

Sunday Roundup – March 10

Feels like spring is on its way this week – I hope so. Everyone’s got that same tired of boots and coats and scarves look about them. Let’s open some windows!

Last week: oh, and within these links are trailer videos to a show that’s running, a show opening this week, and a show opening next week. Don’t say I never tell you anything. And while we’re at it, I’m assuming you’ve turned your clock forward.

School is in Session and We’ve got Video!

More Video, Artist Earnings, Retrograde Mercury and Media and Patti Smith

One more Video, and a Clever Idea from Canadian Stage

In other news over the past couple of weeks a talented marketing student named Jo Hewitt has been busily creating a Facebook page for my business, and it’s finally gone live. I figure it’s going to pretty much be a FB version of this website, with a little extra client content thrown in. Many thanks for your work, Jo – you did a good job and it’s much appreciated.

Finding this to be extremely cool: Like whatever, eh? U of T prof tracks evolution of Canadian English across generations.

Off into the day with you – have a spectacular Sunday.

Sunday Roundup – February 24

Last Roundup for February – De Chardin Project closed last week, and 4.48 Psychosis closed Saturday night, and by next roundup, Laws of Motion will have opened. So much going on – all these are followed by Ching Chong Chinaman, The Whipping Man, The Charge of the Expormidable Moose, Sister Mary’s a Dyke?! and Aromas. Got theatre? Yup.

Noticed last week there were a few problems with WordPress.com  – images not loading, pages taking forever to load. Hopefully it’s been resolved on their end, because I did notice it had an effect on my site stats and hits, and I can’t blame people  – slow or not loading sites don’t get traffic. Fingers crossed. Times like this I’m glad there’s a roundup – here’s what might not have loaded for you last week.

Last week…

things going well and not so well in the socialmediaverse

Three Directors Talk Back and Baby’s First Opening

Video Thursday

I obviously do a lot of writing in my work, and for fun as well. Words make me happy,  well written words delight. And any number of people want a blog, have a blog, say they want or need a blog, are writing a blog, etc. so when I found this article… one of the comments struck me as mighty true “although we “publish” more content than ever before, our writing skills (often) get in the way of effective communication.

I thought it was a great Sunday read, and something many of us should take a look at – enjoy!
