I’ve been away, but now I’m back

Forgive me father for I have sinned, it’s been nearly a year since my last blogpost…

Last March I wrote a post on struggling to fit CPD into my life, and still have a life. Nothing’s changed but, sadly, ceasing to blog did not free up the time or the willpower to finish my Chartership portfolio! Instead I drifted away from the process and now have a six-month hole in my CPD events list. Oops.

So I’m back to blogging in the hope that it will anchor my attempts to charter and provide some sort of focus. Let’s start as we mean to go on with a blogpost on a recent ons.gov.uk training session I attended and some thoughts on the February issue of CILIP Update.


Blogging From the archive: CILIP Update article

I had an article published in CILIP Update magazine last week, but I was away (good timing!) so I couldn’t blog it then. If you’ve ever wondered how the Guardian library runs the From the archive blog, here’s the place to find out.

Update were kind enough to link to it directly (Blogging from the archive: it’s all old news). Have a read if you’re interested (please!).

Digested version (John Crace style) – We used to blog. It was rubbish. Now we’ve focussed the remit and published it through the Guardian site, it’s great. Oh, and Twitter helps. Read it.

If anyone has feedback I’d be really interested. Do you run a similar project? How have you found the process of blogging for work? Disagree with any points?
