  1. Hi Carl,

    I just wanted to contact you and let you know I’ve found your blog incredibly helpful. I have recently begun working in local government in Melbourne.

    We are in the process of redeveloping the website and also using the redevelopment as an opportunity to encourage council to use social media. I look forward to continuing to trek through your posts around content strategy and how council’s can use social media.


  2. Hello Carl.
    Thanks for your kind comments.
    The reason for my post on our WaistLine revolved around my frustration at the value (not) people put on LG web sites. I wanted toraise the issue ov value as opposed to the myopic view of cost, particularly the flawed value of cost per visitor.

    I am currently working on a post about where the web should sit in a LG organisation so keep your eye open for that… not sure if it is going out on the waistline or on Public Sector Forums. It is perhaps a bit contentious for our web site. We shall see.
    Once again thanks for your comments.
    I am happy to take e-mails or calls about the value of web btw.
    Just ring Lincolnshire County Council and ask for me.
    My e-mail is peter.barton@lincolnshire.gov.uk and I have no problem with you publishing that.

    BTW I like your dog :-))

  3. Hi

    I found your blog through the RSS feed from “Where in Devon”. I work in the library service and am really pleased to see that you liked Location, Location, Location.

    I am still finding my way around RSS feeds etc.


    1. Thanks, it went well and glad you and your colleagues came.

      We probably need to think about how all our organisations connect more often and we learn so much from these meetings.
