A creative block can be frustrating and for some – career damaging. People often say to me when I tell them what I do, “That’s so nice that you get to do something creative every day!” Sure, some days are great, but coming up with fresh ideas regularly isn’t easy.

Everyone is online, so it makes sense that your audience is made up of friends, colleagues, and even potential professional contacts. It’s essential to manage your social media presence in a way that complements both…

We’re always trying to make things better, and the team has been busy working on a few updates to freshen up your FlowReader experience. Here’s 6 nifty changes we’ve made to improve our service.  

Here at FlowReader, we do our best to appreciate and value the things that have contributed to our development and helped us grow as a team and as a service. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The food, the family, the good spirits, and the gratitude – it’s a great day. However, the main thing that I enjoy about this holiday is the fact that everyone takes the time to…

Quick Tips for Better Status Updates

  The way we present or promote ourselves on social media is becoming an important part of our regular lives. Whether you’re using your profiles for professional or personal reasons, it’s important to create engaging updates. You might have great content, but if you fail to get your message across in a compelling way then you won’t be able to reach people in the way you want. Posting interesting facts,…
