OK, I’ll admit I’ve only written two blog posts so far. This is not enough for me to feel anything near an expert or that I’m contributing to anyone’s understanding of anything. However I’d just like to note that the value for me is far greater than just sharing my own thoughts.
- I’ve reported on two conferences and in doing so it’s helped to consolidate my understanding and knowledge, and too reflect on what I am learning in attending these events.
- It’s making me read more from others across localgov – namely having strolled through the #weeklyblogclub twitter posts.
- It’s creating a record for me to refer back to easily and demonstrate continual professional development
- In a way it’s driving me to actually try harder and find more meaning in what I do.
I might just have to try and carry on. It is a little time intensive though, but I have chosen particularly wide topics to post on! A few smaller practice posts might help.
