After a year feeling too uninspired to keep contributing to the existing blog, this is a fresh start. Having recently left NSW DEC to enjoy some time off and become a house dad, I’ve realised how much I miss contributing to the education space either through work or this blog. I’ve always ensured what is published on the blog was independent of work, and now there is no conflict of interest- another reason to re-engage. Doing domestic things over the past few months has been rewarding (talking twenty years of neglect there), but something has been wanting- an outlet for at least my own writing (not to presume a flurry of conversations anytime soon). So goodbye-Blog de Blog (that was a red wine moment) after four years and lets see how ‘View from the outside‘ works-for me and hopefully a few other past followers.
