Anyone who is a regular visitor to the site will have noted that the right hand side of the site's front page consists of the last three news items added to the forum.
The news items have been a mixture of site updates, event announcements, news of general interest, and that sort of thing. I have tried to make the news items mostly factual, but a bit of personal opinion probably creeps in every now and then.
I have thought about adding a blog to the site from time to time, but never quite gotten around to it until now. The Wikidot site developers publish a regular blog, and I have found that to be quite interesting, so I thought an "LGAM Blog" might be worth a try.
The main reason I set up this site, was to try and encourage Local Councils to share information with each other a bit more freely, and I am going to try and use the blog to further this aim. I am also going to use it to try and fire up discussions about items of interest that aren't really news.
Anyway from now on expect a bit of personal opinion here and just the facts below.
P.S. I'm Looking forward to heaps of comments and hints about how to make the blog and the site better.
