Why this civil servant is blogging

For the last few months I have been assisting the Cabinet Office with a review of social media – looking at how government currently uses it, as well as the potential opportunities it poses in the future.  In my day job I also get asked fairly regularly by other civil servants how they go about setting up a blog.

I know enough about this area to point them in the direction but have come to the conclusion that to have any real credibility I ought to actually start writing a blog about my work that can hopefully provide pointers and advice to others working in the government (and wider public sector) web world.

This isn’t my first attempt at blogging but it is the first time I have written stuff about my professional life.

  1. Hi, Jeremy.

    Congrats on the blog….keep it up!

    In terms of blogging you might want to point people over to http://www.readmyday.co.uk or the “Blogging Guidebook” aimed at civic leaders at http://www.lulu.com/icele.

    Bye :_)

    Thanks Frazer. Should have added read my day to the blogroll. The second link doesn’t work though?
