This blog has been started for three reasons.
1. It’s about time we kept the Gallomanor site more up-to-date. We’re doing more and more and telling fewer and fewer people about it. A blog will be a fairly effortless way of keeping that content flowing.
2. There are numerous conversations about the community engagement and e-democracy area that I’ve started one to one with people. I hope I’m not being to presumptuous sharing them with everyone.
3. I need to put my money where my mouth is. Having encouraged politicians of various levels to start blogging I guess I should be blogging myself, even if this is just a corporate blog.
If I manage a weekly entry I’ll be happy. There’ll be a mixture of posts about engagement, democracy, the work Gallomanor does, the work other people do in the area, and some general posts that I can’t foresee today. Please feel free to comment but as it is a blog for Gallomanor not myself then I may be a little strict with what stays up so please be constructive with any criticism.
Thank you and enjoy.
