I declare myself a really crap blogger. You can find plenty of evidence here.
- I am inconsistant – rather than put any effort into it I only blog when I feel like it
- I almost never research anything – opinion, opinion, opinion. Does anyone really need my opinion? Probably not.
- I rarely ever visit other blogs and make witty or illuminating comments – or even boring ones.
But I read a lot of blogs and a lot about blogging. I know I’m crap (too few do), but I’ve also got a fairly good idea what makes a good blogger. So when the Nutrition Society who had their Summer Meeting in Belfast earlier this week asked me to do a couple of workshops on blogging, I prepared this presentation.
In the end I didn’t use it – but had conversations about blogging – so no death by PowerPoint and they did most of the talking – which is a much better way of doing things.
