Wow, I am featured in the traditional media. Fascinating!
I have to say, I am very grateful to Coretta Joe, Co-Editor of youth magazine – Attitude for this feature. Attitude is a magazine for young people by young people.
I must say that Coretta was very professional in the way she approached me to get the interview. She was especially good in the polite and artful way she followed up with me. This was after I didn't get back to her and her deadline was fast approaching.
I know some of you might be thinking, I wonder if Corey got any payment for this story. Sadly no, however I am think that if we get together and buy all of the Attitude magazines off the shelves, then maybe something can work out. It could be a follow up feature…then Coretta might have a little budget or ad space to share with me! LOL…
… That's the entrepreneur in me talking, as you well know, we are always looking for a way to access some free publicity.
I truly believe that, Coretta and the team at Attitude Magazine pulled together a great issue. It is focuses on the world of social media in Barbados, from the perspective of the 13 – 21 year old. This makes it a very interesting read, with articles like "Do you think that using social media networking tools such as Facebook, Blackberry Messenger and Twitter hurt relationships?"
It is important that we work with young people and give them a chance to show their true colours. Don't just talk about supporting the youth, go out, buy a paper and read the great content they have been able to put together. Take some time to understand what their world is like. This is an important step if you are every going to be able to relate with them.
Great work again Coretta, thanks for the feature. I am happy to help out any time.
Here is the lady,
