A blogging start

To be a ‘real’ learning technologist or e-learning professional I feel I need to give regular blogging a go. I have tried this before but not very seriously so have not got much from the experience. I am more if a doer than a writer or reader (although I read fiction avidly for relaxation) but I get the feeling there is much to be gained from the experience if I put in a bit of effort and self discipline (I am known to start things and not stick to them).
Having experienced the pre #ocTEL experience I have got a feeling for the Waltham of quality blogging that is going on in the TEL domain and I would like to join in. My contributions might not be impressive to start with but I hope I find some worthwhile things to say that will be of interest to others. Mostly, I hope that I will learn useful things from this experience.

I am a learning technology advisor at the University of Strathclyde where i deal with day to day support issues for the use of our Moodle based VLE as well as advising more widely on online learning in general.
