This post will be a little different from the usual tech-orientated ones below, and you may ask: how so? Well, perhaps to your surprise, this is not Simon! In fact, my name is Queenie and I am the new public relations coordinator on the teccrab team. This post is a little introduction to what my role will be here and some insight as to who I am!
I thought it would be appropriate to start off with an explanation of my name. Recently, whenever I’ve introduced myself to someone, they tend to inquire about how different my name is. I suppose this is great for conversation starters so I decided to Google if there is any meaning to it. According to Wikipedia, Queenie is, and I quote, “an affectionate, or pet use, of the term queen – and is thought to be derived from the Old English word ‘cwen’, meaning ‘woman’ rather than a reference to the monarch or his wife.” To my delight due to my love for anything-British, this name was apparently very popular in the Victorian Era in the British Empire.
In August, I graduated from university with a Communications degree and am trying out this ‘working in the real world’ thing. I met Simon after landing an internship with one of teccrab’s clients, INTERNeX! Knowing my interest in social media, Simon told me about teccrab and asked me if I would be interested in working with him. After listening to his excitement and passion for the company and what he does – website development, internet marketing, and public relations – of course, I agreed.
Now, here I am, introducing myself to you! As the public relations coordinator, I will mainly be involved in the social media aspect of teccrab and for the event “MarioFit Fighting for Kids” as we are one of the sponsors. The journey to Mario’s success as a karate champion and fitness and nutrition expert has not come without difficulties. By competing at the 2012 BC Karate Provincial Championship, he wants to help children in need by supporting two charities, BC Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hunger Fund, for causes very close to his heart.
I truly believe that Mario has an amazing story which is why I am really excited to be working with him, along with Simon, in spreading the word for this upcoming event! In the next couple of months, you will be hearing from me regularly, and hopefully you won’t get too sick of me! I will be writing not only more in-depth on the event, but also on things like the newest technology craze or computer games. Yes, growing up in a family full of boys has definitely skewed my interest towards playing Footmen on WoW rather than watching Vampire Diaries.
Don’t be afraid to leave me a comment, tweet or Facebook message, as I really want to hear from you!

The first version of the teccrab website is now finally online. The site is still in a BETA phase, but the main content, even if they still have to be reviewed again, is online. There is still much to do, but the BETA does look great already. Well at least that is what we think 🙂
If you check out our site you will see that we tried to have the Top of our website similar to the Top of our Blog. The first page has at the moment 3 images, which are rotating. Each image represents one of our core services. Below the rotating images we have a little welcome text followed by the copyright, address and links to our Disclaimer, Contact Us and About Us pages.
By clicking on “Services” you will find the core services teccrab is offering. We have Website Developing, Internet Marketing and Public Relations as the main products and split that later into sub services such as SEO, Banner and Button Design, Blog posting and Online Reputation Management, to name just a few.
Please find here the images you will as well find on our website. You will see that each service has it’s own little icon, we think this is a nice extra touch.
