Team Blogs!

Ok, so, I’m looking at setting up a number of team blogs, after having a play around with the trial one already created.
Currently, there isn’t a lot of interest in blogging. Why not?!?!

The idea of setting up these team blogs is to be able to record goings on in your department, team and own working life and put it out there to other people in and around the university so they can see what’s going on elsewhere.
What it would be is, ideally, the main blog (the Big Boss) would have team blogs stemming from him and from the team blogs, your own individual blog where you can record anything you want…does that make sense?!? Does it sound at all appealing?!

Personally, what I’ve found with blogging since I started working in ICT is that it pretty much is a place where you can talk about anything you like, where you can write about things going on with you, its fun, you don’t need a specific writing style, its personal…its you!
Its no form of contact or immediacy, they’re not supposed to be. They’re just so people can get an insight into what projects you’re working on for example.

It would be great to get all of the departments in the University involved. So people from god knows where in the Uni can read about what someone else god knows where is doing. I know it doesn’t appeal to a lot of people, but surely it appeals to some, right??

Please please please give me some hope!!!

Come on…


Week Two

For starters I want to say how gutted I was to hear about M.J at the weekend…he was an absolute legend and my thoughts are with his family.

DAY 4 –
No major projects given yet! Well…nothing given yet. But I think everyone is really busy today so that will be why. I’d love to just go and walk round and talk to people and just ask them what they’re doing but I’m far too scared!! If everyone is busy they don’t need a newbie pestering them asking what they’re doing, thats the last thing they’ll want!

I had a meeting with Joss this morning about blogging (I needed some help) and it was great. Had a fiddle with the little bits and bobs on the dashboard page and read other people’s blogs. Not too sure if mine really is about what its supposed to be about (me in ICT) because I just seem to babble on about anything I’ve done!
I will be honest though, I have actually used today to have a look at some revision for my resit in August. A bit like what I was asked to do last week with the assignments and using different websites, but I’ve just been looking at something different.
