The blogsite has been rather quiet – unsurprisingly – over the summer. This doesn’t reflect the level of activity that has been going on here: we have been processing a number of new applications for membership, and working hard to develop structures that will be able to sustain a larger organisation.
But we are very invested in creating lively and helpful forums where friends and members can talk to one another: this means developing our blogsites. We know that people will have anxieties about using blogging – it’s unfamiliar to most of us, and feels unsafe and exposing. But for an organisation that needs to maintain close contact between far-flung, busy people, it is a very helpful resource, to supplement conferences and workshops, Skype conferencing, emailing and telephone calls.
