I've got to say that the whole concept of blogging is alien to me.Why would anyone feel compelled to write about themselves on line? And even more of a mystery why would anyone want to read it?
I thought that a Blog was purely an on line diary, this is probably because I had never read one (an absurd but not untypical boast) I am always the last to to embrace new technology,computers in general have remained a mystery to me. I have a very old computer at home that I only use to go on the Internet. The finer points of Word Excel PowerPoint have eluded me thus far.
Recently my Luddite views have seemed more and more ridiculous,especially from a business point of view when so much business is done on line.We have recently become almost fully computerised at work, although we are still learning how to get the best out of it,I can already see the tremendous benefits that it will be able to offer.
So why have I enrolled on a Blogging workshop?
I have joked that every time I go to Ashford BNI as a substitute Lesley Perk seems to be doing the 10 minute spot,for someone so heavily involved with computers she has an easy going not over technical manner. On my last visit the slot was about blogging. As Lesley explained further I realised that not only was this a potentially interesting thing to become involved with, it also offered a tremendous business opportunity. By now my appetite had been whetted and I signed up for the course.
So here I am writing my first post!!!
