I admit that I am a neophyte “blogger” – is there really such a word? I have been doing this for nearly 2 months now and am beginning to wonder who reads this and hence whether I should continue writing!
Since I started this blog on 30 October 2009 there have been 258 views/visits. The busiest day was when 44 people viewed on Nov 1. Some days there is only one person viewing – then I realize that it is me!
Perhaps people don’t know how to access and use the blog? Perhaps they think “bad things” will happen if they read a blog? Perhaps they just forget to check back?
To get to the blog you just need to type the url like any web site. You can save to Favourites or Bookmarks if you wish. We also offer a subscription feature!
Let me review why this blog was created, suggest an easy way to see new articles (called “posts” in blogger talk), and share a feature I hope to add soon.
Your comments are welcome. When you type something as a comment it just doesn’t appear on the blog, first it comes to me for review – I promise not to edit out any polite comments! Then the comments are posted.
I would also welcome suggestions for articles, even just a question. You can email these to me at email@example.com
I also welcome your articles. There is no reason I need to be the only writer here. Maybe email me your suggested topics first.
Why have this blog? Well, this is to supplement the quarterly newsletters which are difficult to send out because of the risk of being labelled a “spammer.” There are often things I want to share with you and they don’t arrive every 3 months in time for the next newsletter. This is an easy way for me to distribute information.
“. . . . but does this mean I have to check this web site regularly – you said you were going to post something new every week?”
I have added an optional feature allowing you to subscribe to this blog. Once you subscribe any new postings are automatically emailed to you. Of course if you don’t want to subscribe then you can check back whenever you want . . .
I am also investigating adding a feature to allow you to download files such as the FH Cons training checklist which keeps needing updating.
I hope this helps explain the blog. Let me know if you want me to continue, or stop – or maybe you want me to only post something once every 2 weeks or once a month?
Will silence be taken as a sign of consent?
