What have you been missing

It's been quite a while since I updated this blog. So what's been happening?

The Scottish Learning Festival progamme has just about been completed. Like most projects the first 80% of the work passed off OK but the final 20% has been nothing short of a nightmare. Between people failing to meet any number of extended deadlines, others that came out of the blue demanding some sort of slot in the programme and others still thinking they have time to get their act together, the finalisation of the programme has been a long drawn out affair. Still it's all been worth it and it's going off to print later this week.

The eLearning Alliance Scotland conference also took place on Friday. This was the first proper 'conference' that I'd organised as Think Different Events and it was really a challenge from the outset. We had a great venue in the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre, two good keynote speakers in John Connell and Steve Molyneux and sponsorship from Adobe, Qwizdom, Video3, eCom Scotland and support from Learning and Teaching Scotland through Glow. Special thanks to Audrey at the eLearning Alliance Scotland and both Michael and Kirsten at the Beardmore. And if it hadn't been for Joe Dorfman and the guys of Video3 it might not have been as successful as we had planned. Let's just say there were a couple of technological challenges placed in front of us on Friday and all the team pulled together to see things through.

On the office front, Laura is settling in, well she keeps turning up despite everybody we meet telling her it will never last!!! Took us an eternity to get BT to give us the telephone lines and we're still working on getting the network up and running. No website to mention at present but hopefully that will be sorted out early this week.

And finally on a personal note I entered my last year as a 40 something last week. And despite somebody's reservations about an old guy like me liking new music (see previous posts) I'm off to the Connect music festival at Inverary Castle in the first weekend of September to see some of my favourite bands including the brilliant Jesus and Mary Chain.

What you said was actually very logical. However, consider this, what if you added a
little information? I am not saying your content
is not good., but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
I mean "What have you been missing" is a little vanilla.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
