I know I’m a bit of a web addict, but this morning I was eating my breakfast and reading my new Nett Magazine and I realised that I really wanted my computer on beside me so that I could follow through from the articles and check out the corresponding websites online too.
Given that a lot of the articles in this mag involve a website related story it seems only logical to be able to follow through and check out the website that Ive just invested a few minutes in reading about. I also noticed that I responded in a similar way to advertisements I was interested in which listed a URL.
So of course I went and got my laptop, checked out the links and decided to write about this topic while I am here too.
So how widespread is this habit? Do you combine media in this way? Studies have shown that people are multi-tasking much more across media and I think marketers are finally catching on, allowing them to further leverage campaigns by having interlinking components across different mediums.

Now the trick for me is to explain to people like my husband that me turning on my computer during breakfast isn’t actually working, a key problem with being actually interested in the area I work in for a living!
