On taking a break

Hello again.

Apologies for the unexpected break in blogging - I would like to reassure you that I haven't been sucked into the web, Lawnmower Man style. Not that I would have expected you to notice - I'm a blogger, not your mum.

The fact is, I've been, and still am, incredibly busy working on an exciting new challenge here in London for TES Connect - and I'm loving every minute of it. I also managed to get away on holiday for a couple of weeks with Ana and our mates too, which was fun, even though we hit a pig in rural France. It's a long story, but fortunately we can all laugh about it now - even the pig.

Working in social media can be an immense challenge at times, but I never forget how lucky I am to be working in a field that allows me to talk to different people all over the world on a daily basis.

I've encountered a fair few challenges, but I'm really lucky to be working with some marvellous people at the moment, and long may it continue.

It's very early days, but we've been trying to balance the serious journalism (not from me) with little bits of mucking about using social media (from me), like this article, The 10 best maths jokes ever, as nominated by teachers and Twitter

I'm back now though, and I'll be posting once a week.

Until my next post, here are some bullshit tech quotes I found to keep you occupied:

Milward Brown Marketing

Milward Brown Paywall


So there you have it - even though I've taken a break, the bullshitters have still been beavering away. Reassuring, isn't it?
