Our first task is to write a post about joining the BlogFest and to say what we hope to get out of the activities over the next 3 weeks.
Since I am "leading" the activity, I suppose my aims are a little different to other participants but perhaps they are not.
- to get a better understanding of the potential of a blog for professional development
- in particular, the major obstacles others face when they are starting out. When you've been doing things for a while like I have, it is easy to not recognise potential problems.
- I hope to persuade the participants to see blogging as the beginning of a conversation, and
- I'm hoping to provide a stimulating experience.
