Before proceeding, let’s take a moment to examine this splendid blog that you are now reading. It was created by my chum Anna Rydne, who has amazingly managed to build the whole thing from scratch in under a year.
I read it regularly, as I hope you do too. Normally I leap onto each post as it is published, but if I miss one I always catch up later when time permits.

Considering how much Anna has accomplished in such a short time, one can only assume this blog will be soon scaling the heights to blogosphere stardom. I, for one, will enjoy watching this ascent immensely.

In a text longer than 100 words, people tend to read only 20 % of it. This text is 298 words long, so you’ll probably just scan through it, looking for keywords and highlighted phrases.
The other day, I performed a mini-survey on Twitter. I sent out a question: Does Internal comms bore you? What can I say? Internal communication bore people. A lot.
