The reasons I will be keeping a blog are as follows:
1. I have big plans for this year. For Birmingham first and foremost, then for JC Social Media and for Clever Tykes. My plan is to rock up to BYPY 2015 with one hell of a story about what I’ve been up to whilst in the role. I’d like to give the next winner a really good insight into what the responsibility means and (hopefully) how they can maximise the benefits of it for everyone.
2. Live tweeting can be antisocial. This may sound strange coming from a social media professional, but I don’t want to be attending fantastic events just to sit there on my phone tweeting about what a great time I’m having, whilst I’m missing out on the here and now. Recording everything here means I can chill out on the live updates and provide ongoing commentaries after each event and achievement.
So… watch this space for updates and insights, and follow me on Twitter here.
