Today I attended the last meeting of the ALIA 2012 Biennial organising committee. I’ve been involved with the conference since preparing the bid in 2009. With the conference now five weeks away, all our hard work is paying off. It’s been a great experience, and the rest of the committee have been a great group of people to work with. Hope to see you all in Sydney in July!
In my first #blogjune post, I mentioned that my posts from Monday and Tuesday would tend to be non-work-related. This is because I am lucky enough to be able to take parental leave two days a week to look after my sons, aged 3 1/2 and 15 months. I’ve been doing this since February, and the leave will run until February next year. We’ve got a bit of a routine going: we go to Ready, Steady, Go Kids on Monday morning, and storytime at the local library on Tuesday morning. I did the same thing when our eldest son was born, and it’s quite a bit different with two of them to look after. It can be a bit trying at moments, but I love it.
Made it with 35 minutes to spare. We’re spending a couple of days on the Central Coast for my wife’s birthday, and this is thr first chance I’ve had to write a blog post. The new roof box we bought for the car passed its first test and got out luggage hrte safe and sound.The weather isn’t the best and it looks like it’s going to be a rainy day tomorrow for the birthday. Hopefully we’ll find something to do to keep the boys entertained.
Well, I’ve signed up for the blog every day in June challenge for 2012. This is the first year I’ve taken part, so hopefully I can think of enough to say. I have participated in a couple of the Library Day in the Life projects, but this is a much more daunting prospect.
I’ve had the blog for nearly two years, but have never regularly posted to it. It was created as part of a Web 2.0 training program which I helped to organise at my workplace, and contains a mixture of work-related and non-work-related posts. My posts during June will also be a mixture of content. I’m imagining there’ll be a bit of a pattern to my posts, with the posts from Wednesday-Friday being work-related, and the others days tending more towards non-work-related topics. I’m hoping this will be a fun experience!
One down, 29 to go …
