July 1st, 2010
A lot of blood, sweat and tears have been shed developing mch’s new website. What started as a simple upgrade, has dragged me into the modern era by prompting an accompanying facebook page and blog site.
It is with a mixture of shame and pride that it has taken me until 2010 to sign up to facebook and read or write my first blog. My delayed entry into the social networking age is based on a belief that the associated technology dislikes me. It seems to sense my fear and doubt and takes great pleasure in refusing to work.
To illustrate, look no further than this blog site. My lack of nous, together with the blog site’s malevolence, means that you are currently unable to leave a comment to this blog. Even the stoic efforts of my web designer have failed to remedy the problem.
Rest assured though, the ability to comment will be available soon. In the meantime, feel free to use the ‘Ask me anything’ function to get in touch (or you could simply use email!). I’d be very grateful for any feedback on the website. Also, if you have a question you’d like featured on our website polls, specific resources you’d like to see included in the resource centre, or an issue you’d like to discuss via the blog, please get in touch.
Despite the reservations of an acute technophobe such as myself, I hope the more interactive nature of ‘modern mch’ gives more opportunity for interested parties to share their thoughts and ideas on the charitable, consultancy and training sectors.
