The blog is dead, long live the blog!

So (never start an opening phrase with ‘So’…;0) …it has nearly been a year since my last blog post. Social media micro platforms have spoilt me for instant reach. Although I still enjoy others posts I haven’t been motivated to communicate here. I had 93 spam comments when I logged back on, which means that no one much has stopped by and it’s been a case of “nothing to see here, move along please”. It’s all about SEO and tagging and key words and tapping into the social algorithm, which is all pretty joyless. I even gave up my phone which has horrified friends. I was thinking of ditching the email as it’s 70% spam. In essence I have become tech weary, tech overloaded and even a bit tech-phobic  but then I was given an ‘ipad’ (without 4G) but oh, it has re-kindled a little excitement within me for ‘tech’ and then last week at my youngests first parent consultation, our first slot was with a Design and Technology teacher who sat there with a neat piece of kit that the UK Government are funding for school children which has surpassed the RaspberryPi and is more akin to a tablet phone chip and I was seeing the possibilities… a little.

That said, I think I’m going to go a bit retro and just post a photo a week for a while and see if I can re-kindle the inner glow. Don’t stop and stare folks, there’s still nothing to see here… yet….
