This blog is one year old today.
It was on my return from the 2006 Lib Dem conference that I was inspired to have a go at this blogging lark. I signed up to Blogger, chose a template, played about with it a bit, and launched it into the world with my first post on Friday 22nd of September 2006.
On the whole the experience has been a hugely positive one. The objectives I had set for it were mostly personal ones, helping me to develop my writing and thinking, and I think it has gone a long way to achieving these. While the posts have been a little more irregular than I would like, I think the blog has been improving as I have learnt more and more about what works and what doesn’t. I still have a long way to go before I reach the standards of those who know what they are doing but I am still enthused by the potential of blogging, both for me personally and in the wider sense.
While I haven’t been particularly focused on building up a large readership, I have found the fact that what I write is published has been very important in shaping my ideas and how I go about expressing them. So I’d like to thank all those who have come to visit this little corner of the web over the past year. I hope you have found something of interest.
