Posts of the Day – February 2015

Cottage6Despite originally hoping and promising on Twitter to continue the Posts of the Day until the end of April, unfortunately we are a third of the way through March already, no posts of the day have materialised so far this month, and I’m only just managing to find time to publish the February list of my favourite articles. Sadly this is a sign that this feature of my blog needs to come to an end for a while. As much as I enjoy reading colleagues’ thoughts and opinions, and will continue to do so and share on Twitter and Google+, finding a post of the day for every day of every month is a time-consuming task and one I can realistically no longer fit into my busy schedule. I have my eye on a number of courses I would like to complete within the next 18 months to improve my profile and my skills, and I need to finish the one I have already signed up for very soon before the deadline catches up with me. Several ideas for posts of my own are also clamouring for attention and a few hours to polish them off.

I hope you have enjoyed this feature on my blog and that it has helped you discover new and interesting articles and authors. Don’t forget to look at my blogroll to find many more than the ones listed below. 

All that remains for me to say is thank you to everyone who has been listed in the Posts of the Day for writing such a diverse range of helpful articles, and to all the people that have dropped by this blog for reading and sharing.
